I got my first glimpse of the EquiGroomer brush when I was looking through cat behavior forums and answering questions. I noticed that the EquiGroomer brush was mentioned several times throughout a post that I was reading and decided to check it out. I visited the official website and reached out to the inventor to see if I could get the chance to test this brush out on my group of cats.
I should mention that I do a ton of research on my own before I reach out and ask others to do a product review for them. I do not typically post bad reviews because I only want to use and recommend products that I believe in and would use myself. I had several horse friends I decided to talk to prior to contacting the inventor who have had success with this brush.
EquiGroomer At Work
The EquiGroomer grooming tool for cats is a piece of fancy wood that has what appears to be a saw on the reverse side of the brush. The tool is very durable and is comfortable to hold while grooming. It does take some patience to master the brush but it does a fantastic job at removing hair once you get a hang of it.
EquiGroomer Versus Furminator
I prefer this brush over the Furminator and other commonly used brushes because it removes the dead coat underneath without damaging the healthy coat like the Furminator is known for doing. The teeth are specialized for grabbing any loose hair by only the end piece so that there is no pain or damage done to the cat or healthy hair by using it for a long period of time or for multiple days in a row.
I decided to use this brush on my five long haired cats, two who detested any form of brushing in the past. The two cats who did not like grooming ended up enjoying the EquiGroomer since it was much more comfortable to them than the other brushes I had. The teeth also kid of mimic their own tongue because of the saw like feeling.
The blade of the EquiGroomer quickly fills up with hair. I have fallen in love with this grooming tool and will keep this brush for my grooming tool kit that I bring to the shelter when I visit. I think the cats at the shelter who have had bad experiences with grooming will eventually learn to love grooming with this brush in hand.
The most amazing part of the EquiGroomer brush is that it comes in a variety of colors which are both beautiful and vivid. You can purchase a brush on Amazon or on the official website.
