Double Row Rake & Shedding Blade for Double Coats

This 2-sided Double Row Rake & Shedding Blade has been specifically designed to cater for pets with double coats. The rake side gently and effectively removes the hair from the undercoat. You can then switch to the shedding blade, which does the same for the topcoat. With a soft grip handle that moulds to your hand, it’s super comfortable to use, especially when de-shedding larger breeds that take a little longer!

Sheddy Brush for Smooth & Short Coats

Great for short and smooth coats as the rubber pins cling on to the hairs and lift them away. It can be used in a gentle, circular motion to lift the hair and provide a nice massage at the same time - so there will be no complaints from your clients! You can use the Sheddy Brush during washing too, as this helps lift any dirt and debris. It will also double up as a brush to use on surfaces to make cleaning up quicker and easier! 58400-002 5 in 1 Sheddy Rubber Brush High jpg
