Shed Ender Pro De-shedding Tool
(4 out of 5)
ShedEnder keeps undercoats under control, especially on long-haired cats.
August 9, 2010 5:40 pm | By Zootoo Editor Kelly B.
Like most cure-alls in life, the guarantee is grander then the result. Such as the ShedEnder’s pledge to “Remove shedding hair before it ends up all over your house, furniture and clothes!” The ShedEnder is an unassuming tiny comb on a chubby (I mean, ergonomic) handle – but for those of us suffering through a life of pet hairs all over everything, we cannot ignore the allure of having a “de-shedding” tool in our arsenal as we battle those furry tumbleweeds.
Though the packaging clearly assures us that this tool is for “right and left hand use,” left-handed pet owners may find the right-to-left sweeping motion awkward. Because of the directionality, you have to coax your pet into a complementary position (and pray they stay that way). In addition, the comb must be held parallel to your pet’s body, which is easy on my cat’s sides, but not as easy on his big bushy tail.
The small comb makes the grooming process time-consuming, I can’t imagine using this on a large animal. Their undercoat would begin growing back by the time you finished. Also, because of the shallow teeth, you have to clean the comb out more frequently then most grooming tools.
The ShedEnder does live up the promise to “remove dead, loose hair from the undercoat,” although judging by the way my cats glared at me while using it on them, I’m not sure all those hairs were actually dead and loose. You should also consider if you really want to remove your pet’s undercoat. It stripped away some of the lushness from my normally velvety Chartreux’s fur, but it worked marvelously on my long-haired Ragdoll. I can’t say it “ended” his shedding, but there are definitely less of his silky hair clumps floating around my house.
Pros: Really does remove your pet’s undercoat, good for small pets.
Cons: Small size makes the product labor intensive.

The shed ender is an awesome tool for dogs and cats alike. I prefer it over the furminator. I like the way the handle is inline with the comb rather than the way the furminator's handle is styled more like a rake.
Pros: It really works

Does get out a lot of hair
posted 4 years ago
This worked pretty well for me. It did remove a lot of hair, but my dog still shed alot. I have purchased the furminator since I bought this and that works better. This is easy to use and did a decent, but not a great job. My dog did not mind being brushed with this and I would still be using it if I hadn't gotten the furminator.
Pros: removes a lot of hair
Cons: doesn't really end the shedding

Many of my birds have survived thanks to this antibiotic. Why I can't find it in a store is beyond me. This is a miracle tonic that at only 2.99 can save all types of birds. It's almost impossible to … more ›
