EquiGroomer 5 Inch – Great for Dogs and Cats (5 Inches, approx. 12.7 cm)
About this deal
Warm and sunny days are perfect for letting your horse dry naturally. Use a sweat scraper to remove/whisk away as much water as possible before thoroughly drying the entire body. ( See EquiGroomer “WaterWisk” scraper/squeegee tool here .) Then cover with a clean sweat sheet in case your clean horse decides to enjoy an enthusiastic roll on the ground!
This post focuses on the information necessary to make the best decision for the equine in your life.

Carding is a grooming term – and process – to describe the removal of a dog’s undercoat. The undercoat is the soft, short, downy and dense hair under the top (or outer) coat. The undercoat insulates and protects the skin in colder weather.
Not all dogs like to be groomed, so it is important to know your dog’s preferences and tolerance at being handled during grooming. If you have a puppy, begin grooming them at an early age to avoid issues later as they grow bigger and stronger! If you are a horse owner, you have probably had (many) conversations about proper bathing for your horse and with each question comes a variety of – even conflicting – answers. Is bathing good for their skin or does it dry it out? Should you use warm or cold water when bathing in the summer heat? When is regular bathing too much?
Most grooming tools work by reaching down through the coat and pulling dead hair out from the base. With EquiGroomers coarse blade, it grabs the loose hair from the ends, so there’s no tugging or harm to the skin. This is especially important for sensitive-skinned animals. Our vet used one on our dog, removing a ton of hair. We had to get one. It works well on our cats too, keeping shedding on chairs to a minimum. I brushed my Bavarian Mountain Scenthound and I could not believe how much undercoat came out. And he was done with Furminator all over just 2 days before. Really nice piece of grooming tool! As a groomer I use it myself and recommend to my customers.
