Rated 4 out of 5 by Leemikcee It's effective
Unlike the previous reviewer, I find the dematting rake to work well for my long-haired cat. Mats are a constant problem for her, and like many long-haired cats, she's sensitive to having her fur and skin tugged on. Daily grooming is hard to do when she dislikes it so much. I've resorted to cutting out the mats from her fur with scissors many times to avoid pain and distress for both of us.
This tool gets under the mat and cuts through it rather than detangling (or trying to detangle) or combing it out. My cat tolerates the process much better than before.
I caution users to be careful removing the fur from the rake, because the curved blades are sharp (again, in contrast to the first reviewer's experience)!

Rated 1 out of 5 by carwin61 not good at all
not good at all. did nothing for my pup. he had some mats behind his ear, not too bad. it somewhat went into the mat but did not slip/cut through anything. as if it wasnt sharp and actually started pulling and hurting my pup.
