      I have one cat with medium length hair and another with long hair so I do encounter a lot of shedding and clumps of hair gathering throughout my home. The problem gets even worse in the summer when they start to shed their coats. My medium haired cat is sick and elderly so she often gets matted clumps of hair stuck in places where she cannot groom herself. While browsing the pet section at Wal-Mart I saw the ShedMonster tool that cost about $8. The product is supposed to professionally de-shed hair and cut through matted clumps without causing skin irritation to your pet. Since the product was so inexpensive I thought I would give it a try. It must

      have been on clearance at that time since it appears to cost between $15-20 through other online retailers now.

      The tool has metal prongs that look like a comb, but they are not at all sharp and slide effortlessly through the long haired cat’s coat. I believe that the tool has a hidden razor or some capability to trim the hair since there is a massive difference in the amount of fur I remove using this tool on my long haired cat compared to a brush. There are also directions included that specify not to continue to run the ShedMonster over the same area of the coat too many times or it will unnecessarily thin the coat, which seem to solidify my suspicions. With that said the tool works much, much better on removing hair than the comb I used to use. I don’t agree with the product’s claim that it reduces the amount of overall shedding. I probably don’t groom my long haired cat as often as I should but I still find quite a few clumps of hair from him scattered all throughout the house. This tool really just removes the loose hair and to be totally effective the pet should probably be groomed at least once a week. Also, I do notice that using the tool creates quite a bit of static electricity. I think it’s designed to do this so that the de-shedded hair sticks to ...

      the metal prongs for easy removal, but you’ll notice that it will start to stick to your hands as you try to remove it for disposal. I would prefer if this were not the case. I’m trying to get rid of the hair so that it’s not accumulating around my house and getting all over me.

      My cat with medium length hair does not benefit quite so much from this tool. I think the tool needs a certain length of hair to grab hold of and pull out the loose fur that would otherwise get shed. It does not get enough length from her hair to do any good at all. It’s too bad because the product claims that

      it can remove matted hair without irritation and discomfort. I would have liked for this product to do that for her. Instead I went back to using my very stiff metal brush to remove the clumps and it tugs at the matted fur, needs quite a few repetitions to completely remove the mats, and causes her discomfort. If ShedMonster could create a tool for pets with shorter hair I would certainly purchase that. I give the tool 7 out of 10 only because it doesn’t work for short haired pets and you have to be conscientious about using it. If you’re very busy, like most of us are, you probably will forget to use it as often as it should be used.
