Holiday Hop for Pets Giveaway!


Thank you for visiting our brand spanking new "Pawed Squad" pet centric review & giveaway blog. We're starting out with a bang as part of the Holiday Hop for Pets Giveaway.

This giveaway contest begins at 12:01am on Thursday November 18th and will end on Thursday November 25th. The winner will be chosen via www.random.org. Visit all the blogs participating in this event! There are more pet giveaways this week than you can shake a stick at!
Based in metropolitan St. Louis, FURminator Inc. was founded in 2002 by professional groomer Angela Porter & her husband David. Together they worked to create and develop the FURminator deShedding tool.

The FURminator is a special anti-shedding tool that dramatically reduces the mess & clean up of unwanted pet hair designed to stop the shedding where it begins, in your pet's undercoat. It's proven to decrease shedding by 60-80%, & is guaranteed to reduce shedding better than any brush comb, or rake. FURminator is recommended by veterinarians and by doctors for people who have allergies.
Not my cat.  ; )
OUR REVIEW: My cat and I love his FURminator! I've bought many products through the years that claimed to help with cat shedding. They didn't. They either fell apart or never went together correctly, or just didn't really do anything. The FURminator does what it claims. It combs through your pet's hair, pulling out loose hair & leaving behind the healthy hair, so he doesn't look scalped or thinned out, yet you come away with handfuls of hair, that you otherwise would have found all over the carpet and couch, or in hairballs!

Caveat: You do have to be careful with it, as it's a little heavy & although it does have a protected blade, you want to be careful around your pet's head & other highly contoured areas, so you don't do what I did last week & accidentally give him the tiniest nick of a bald spot on top of his head! It's not bad & didn't draw blood - it's barely noticeable, but now I know to not fight him with the FURminator if he's feeling feisty! 

WHERE TO BUY:  FURminators can be purchased from www.furminator.com, from Target & from Amazon.com. Prices range from $17.99 to $73.99, depending on tool size, store & sales.
