Review: Ultimate Touch Instant Mat & Tangle Remover

Ya know all that cute fur on my floppy ears? Well, it’s not too cute when it gets all matted and knotty. I don’t mind it much, but mommy thinks knots are icky and does what she can to rid my fur of them. My ear furs have a mean habit of getting knotty, so mommy set out on a hunt for something to make those knots disappear.

A little about my human sister, Taylor…

I want to apologize again for my not visiting friends as much recently. For those who don’t know, Taylor has Fibromyalgia, and has cervical lordosis (a curve in the upper spine, specifically in the neck region). She was recently diagnosed with Chronic Degenerative Disc Disease of the Cervical Spine. This is why sometimes she does not feel well. *Sigh*

So, when Taylor does not feel well, I lay with her to help make her feel better. Whenever I can, I schedule posts at least a week in advance, so I don’t miss a day, but then I don’t always have that time to visit all of you. I do try and make up those visits whenever I can.

Now for my review…

Look below for the Good Stuff vs. the Not-So-Good Stuff…

Ultimate Touch Instant Mat & Tangle Remover, by Four Paws&#174

My mommy found this product online — it’s made by the same company that makes Nala’s car seat harness. I, of course, was totally against getting it, but it was either buy it or have my ear furs cut (which she’s already done!). Could you imagine me without all my ear furs?! Egads!

Other doggies must have the same problem with their fur,
’cause why else would they make a product like this?

OOH, these teeth look sharp, don’t they?

Review: Ultimate Touch Instant Mat & Tangle Remover
They’re not too sharp, but you don’t want to stick
them in anyone’s faces, especially the furry ones.

I had to check things out before I let mommy touch me with it.

She ran the comb through my ear furs…

The first couple of times were OK.

But then she attempted to remove a knot.

This wasn’t gonna be easy.

Review: Ultimate Touch Instant Mat & Tangle Remover
Mommy took a tiny bit of fur at a time, and pulled the
comb through my fur. Honestly, I did not like it one bit.

But look at the knotted fur that mommy pulled out!

After she was done with my knots, my mommy brushed me a little
with my new ShedMonster. May as well make me look pretty all over!

Furget about the knots — this was the REAL payoff!

Review: Ultimate Touch Instant Mat & Tangle Remover
Ahhhh… I’ll review anything for cheese.

The Good Stuff:

  • The comb is nice and sturdy, but light and easy-to-hold.
  • It removed my knotted fur and small matts.
  • There’s a hole at the end, so you can hang it up.
  • After all your knots are removed, you can use this comb every day to keep the knots from coming back.

The Not-So-Good Stuff:

  • I’m not gonna lie… I wasn’t really happy with this comb. My mommy had to hold the knotted fur (which was really close to my skin), so it didn’t hurt when she pulled it. She also had to hold me, ’cause I fought every single pull of the comb. This comb does NOT go through knotted fur easily. It DOES pull, but I don’t know if there’s any other way to remove a knot from fur without the pulling (unless you cut the knot out). :(

My conclusion?

Knotted fur and matts are not fun. And if you don’t want to lose your fur by way of scissors, you’re gonna have to withstand some type of comb to try and remove them. The best advice I have, is to tell your human to brush the fur that is prone to knotting… often, so it doesn’t get knotty in the first place. Then you can use a comb like this without having it hurt at all. :)

    I don’t get knots, but Simon does!! Brushing knots our of kitties SUCKS so mom just uses scissors…nothing like a kitty with little bald spots! Bahahahahahaha! But they’re mostly on his belly so it’s not too bad. :)

  5. Sounds like an interesting product – mom has the BEST combs the remove our knots are the ones that have revolving teeth. They are hard to find but they really do work the best as the teeth don’t pull on the knots.

    We are sorry to hear about Taylor – Mom sort of knows how she feels she has a severe hump back from osteoporosis now and has suffered fro Lupus for nearly 30 years. She has lots of days where she can not do much either.
