FURminator Inc. manufactures products to address the number one complaint of pet owners, shedding. We also love our pets and understand the frustration fellow pet lovers feel with the problems of shedding. The embarrassment of hair all over the house when guests come to visit. The endless vacuuming and cleaning. The constant checking and wiping of their hair off our clothes.
For years, a professional groomer (Angie Porter, co-founder) had been attempting to find the best tool to combat shedding. After over a decade of using every possible device in the industry, she worked with her husband (David Porter, co-founder) to develop a new type of tool that didn't cut the pet's coat. They created a unique tool to grab and remove the loose undercoat. Together they experimented with placing this stainless steel deShedding edge in a crude handle. Little by little they experimented with different, more-ergonomic handle designs and more-effective edges. After many modifications they arrived at their most successful design and patented the FURminator deShedding Tool, which now has multiple patents and additional patents pending.
And the rest of the FURminator story is, as they say, history - but it's an exciting, ongoing history. The FURminator deShedding Tools are complemented by a complete line of deShedding products to promote a healthy coat and skin and to help reduce shedding.
