Since I have 11 cats and 2 dogs I always have one that is matted or has lots of knots. I always shave them with a clipper but then they have bald spots. When I took my animals to the vet one of my cats had a huge knot on his back. My vet pulled out a dematting comb and that knot was gone. I thought that was interesting because it didn't look like it was hurting him.
I was very happy to review the Epica Reversible De-Matting Comb with Safety Blades for Dogs and Cats because I hate to see knots on my babies and I could discover first hand how a de-matting comb works.
This comb is very sturdy and has a nice handle that makes for a great comfortable grip. Since it is reversible it can be used by right or left handed people. It also have a nonslip grip and a thumb rest.
I tried it on my dogs small knots but it was pulling their skin but on the big knots of fur it works great. It gets the mats out with no problems. Now I can keep my cats mat free and my dogs less matty between grooming.
