    Default Does anyone use a furminator?

    I was just wondering if anyone uses a furminator on their bully? I have one for my kitty and it works wonders!! If you do what size do you have? I have the short haired cat one for adult cats, do you think it would be ok to use it on Hulk? He seems to be shedding a ton all of a sudden and he is only 4 months old.

    My son uses one on his pug and it works wonders,,i tried it on chumley and it didn't work nearly as well. Others here have said it works for them..maybe I just had the wrong sized one? Theyre pretty expensive aren't they?

    I have one but it's mainly for the cats. Ruthie does not like to be brushed and it really does nothing to help with her short, thin fur. On the cats it works wonders though.

    I have the medium one, it's orange and on the package it had a boxer. It's works pretty good on Buster, some have said that they cant get into the body folds with it but Buster loves when I use it on him and I get a lot of fur off him.

    Thanks everyone! They are expensive and I'm hoping the kitty one might work on Hulk lol it's short hair haha. His fur is so short right now with being a puppy. I tried the brush on him but he thought it was a game.

    We have one and used it a few times but the bullies really didn't like it. Now we use the Kong Zoom Groom and our bullies love it and it really gets the loose hair out, better than the Furminator I think.

    Thanks! I'll have to look into that. I tried the furminator on hulk again and he just thinks I'm playing. It didn't get much off. It works wonders with my kitty but so far not with him (it's also the one for short haired cats so that may be part if it).

    We use both the furminator and the zoom groom. The zoom seems to get a lot of the top hair but the furminator gets deeper. I use the zoom first then do a few passes with the furminator. It really seems to work.

    I use the furminator to start to get out the under hairs, and then I use the zoom to finish it off… I only have to brush Winston once a week! The fulminator is expensive, but I also use it on my boxer...

    same here.... Zoom Groom mostly, but the furminator at times to get some of the top coat off

    I vote for the Zoom Groom too. Does a much better job, and Vegas actually likes to be brushed, especially his butt.
