SleekEZ Deshedding Grooming Tool Review

Shedding is a normal way for dogs to allow for new hair to grow. Unfortunately, there are instances when the shedding is more than what can be considered normal. As such it is important that we help our pooches shed these excess hairs to help them grow their newer and healthier furs a lot quicker. One of the tools you can use is the SleekEZ Deshedding Grooming Tool.

Description

The SleekEZ Deshedding Grooming Tool is a nifty accessory for removing excessive loose fur from your pet’s coat. It is constructed of premium-quality poplar wood as the base of the SleekEZ. Forming the teeth of the deshedding tool is a thin strip of high-carbon steel that has been engineered to follow a wave-like, even saw-like, pattern, providing shallower grooves that will help minimize if not eliminate contact between the edges of the SleekEZ and the dog’s skin. The same design allows for the easier removal of loose hair without snagging the fur and damaging the dog’s coat. The poplar wood comes with a non-toxic finish to make it a lot safer for anyone to use. The overall design of the poplar wood block is curved at the sides to allow for the natural conformity to the curves of the hand as it grips the SleekEZ.

The SleekEZ is best indicated in the management of excessive shedding in dogs that have short- to medium-length furs, although it is highly possible for long- and thick-coated dogs to benefit from it as well.

Key Benefits

  • Reduces shedding

Unlike other systems, the SleekEZ Deshedding Grooming Tool has been shown to reduce shedding by up to 95% even with just the initial brushing. While shedding is not necessarily bad because it is a normal part of a dog’s life in pretty much the same way as we lose some of our hairs to help facilitate the growth of new hairs, we must be able to assist our dogs in the shedding process so that they will be able to produce healthier hairs much faster.

  • Won’t irritate your pooch’s skin

Some folks complain that the SleekEZ is nothing more than a block of wood with a hacksaw blade attached to one of the sides. The idea behind this unusual configuration of a deshedding tool is to minimize the risk of the steely wave-like deshedding teeth touching your pooch’s skin. Because the ‘grooves’ are shallower than the teeth of most combs and brushes, the tips of these teeth will not irritate and cause inflammation on your dog’s skin. While there are reports of the dog’s skin getting irritated or even hurt by these so-called ‘saw blades’, they have been closely attributed to incorrect use of the SleekEZ whereby the edges of the brush actually touch and irritate the skin.

  • Removes pet dander and dirt

Not only is SeekEZ effective in the removal of loose pet fur, it is also effective in the removal of pet dander and dirt. Removing pet dander can help reduce the incidence of allergies in your home. This should make it a lot safer for family members who may have hypersensitivities to pet dander as well as other particles.

  • Can be used on furniture, upholstery, and other items

Because of its inherent block design, you can easily use the SleekEZ to clean loose hair and debris that may fall on your furniture, upholstery, or even beddings. At the very least you now have a much easier way of picking up loose hair on your carpet, upholstery, and other items so you can ensure a much cleaner home.

The SleekEZ Deshedding Grooming Tool is a great piece of grooming accessory for assisting in your pet’s shedding. It’s comfy on the hands and uses a very interesting design on its brush. However, its design innovation is also its limitation as thicker- and longer-coated pooches may not benefit that well from the deshedding properties of the SleekEZ.
