Extra care must be taken when using it, as the edges of the teeth are quite sharp. Takes a while to feel confident using it.
A basic pet rake for an affordable price. Does a good job smoothing out undercoats, and helps prevent future tangles and mats. Works well on thick fur and on some cat coats. Easy-grip handle, sturdy build.

If you’re going to be spending any time at all grooming your pet, you should invest in a quality grooming rake. Rakes feature sharp teeth that help to strip out the dead, shedding undercoating and matted fur on an animal, all while leaving the top layer intact. These work for both cats and dog who have thick or long coats. Features that you should concentrate on in terms of grooming rakes include durability, a comfortable handle, and a design that is easy to clean. Use rakes every couple of days during molting season — particularly winter to summer — to keep your pet’s coat from matting up.
