Safari Flea Comb with a Double Row of Teeth

This $7 flea comb is no joke!  Wow!  It seriously works.  

I have several regular brushes and combs that I'd been using and had been happy to see that I could sometimes pluck two or even three off, but when I tried this comb, holy smokes.  I was getting up to ten off at a time.  Now that everyone had their Revolution, I'm still getting ten off in a sitting, though thankfully, none of the fleas are moving anymore.  Even when the fleas were alive, they would get tangled in the fur in the comb and not really be able to go anywhere.

So far, all the Tinies LOVE it (5 short hair, 1 long hair).  Even the Tinies that don't normally like to be brushed or combed, really love this comb.

Awesome!

august, my old vet advised a bowl of warm water and some dawn detergent in the water.  Dip the comb in the suds, slide the comb through the coat, and dip again.  the fleas get trapped by the suds and sink to the bottom of the bowl.  but I don't think I ever got ten on the comb at once!  LOL

For whatever reason, our fleas didn't even need the bowl of soapy water!  They just got caught in the fur and in between the two rows of comb, and when I'd slide the fur off the comb, they'd all comb out in a clump.  Maybe it's because there were so many.   Tongue Tongue Tongue   (Then I put the whole clump in a Ziplock and comb more, and had a nice collection in the Zip, then I'd zip it up and put it out.)
