Hey Pet Parents & Pet Lovers,
Finding the right brush for your kitty can be a hard task to do. Especially if you’re a worried pet parent when it comes to using metal bristle brushes or razer style brushes.
We were recently approached by a company called Eazee (made by Foolee) who has developed a de-shedding brush that has no metal pieces but still does a terrific job of taking the dead hair off your pet.
Their sales pitch is that it is Safer, Gentler, Easier to Use, and More Effective than other de-shedding brushes.
Safer: Because the brush has no sharp edges and is made of plastic, it is less likely that your little one will get scratched.
Gentler: Because of the way the brush is developed, there is no risk of pulling live hair. In this section, they state that you can groom your kitty every day with the brush. At the moment we still groom Beau about once or twice a week max, since he’s not that fond of getting brushed and we switch between a standard metal bristle brush and the Furminator (which we use sparingly due to the amount of de-shedding it does. he actually doesn’t mind… and for some reason likes better than regular bristle brushes.)
Easier to Use: Due to the way the head is contoured this de-shedding tool is very easy to use and is very easy to clean by pulling the lever back on it’s back. I will say, this has been the easiest brush to clean. When you pull the lever back the hair immediately falls off, which may be my favourite thing about this brush.
More Effective: This brush comes with two changeable heads which are quite easy to switch through. I will admit, the first time trying to change the brushes I did have some difficulty. You have to push the lever pretty far forward and really watch where you put the comb in or else it will fall out. The white comb is for a softer, more gentle groom, and the black one is for a more intense groom.
Did my kitty like it?
I can easily say that Beau liked the white brush a lot. He sat in my lap and purred away as I combed him, but as soon as I switched to the black brush he wasn’t a huge fan. I’m not overly concerned about that though, as the white brush does a really great job of removing the hair, and as long as my kitty is purring I’m happy!
Is it effective?
Yes, I would say it’s effective. It took out quite a bit of dead hair. The image above is how much hair it removed in about 10-minutes. I would take into account that we haven’t brushed Beau in around 3-months (due to the lesion on his back), we didn’t want to use any metals on him so it wouldn’t irritate the soft flesh that is still doing a bit of recovery.
Are there any cons?
Yes, I would say there is one con about this brush. It does make quite a bit of mess. Unfortunately, due to the way the comb is made, hair doesn’t stay stuck in it and a lot ends up either in your lap or floating around. This isn’t a huge concern for me, as I have a pretty nice lint cleaner, but for folks who are looking for something to catch all the hair this brush wouldn’t be for you.
What are some other benefits of this brush?
Although I haven’t tested out the other brush heads, I love the fact that they can interchange with the same base. I don’t think I will need any other ones because this brush did so well with Beau, but I like the fact that I have the option if I do need them. (some include de-matters, slickers and soft bristle brushes)
I would say this brush is a solid 4.8/5. It’s easy to use, is gentle on kitties and does a good job getting the dead hair off of cats. I would give it a full 5/5 if it didn’t leave a mess. I wonder if there’s a way to avoid this that I haven’t figured out. I’ll let you know as I get to know the brush better, but I do recommend it as a buy! I’m very happy to be adding this wonderful brush to the collection of pet care products I’ll be using on Beau!
So Pet Parents, has anyone ever tried the Eazee brush? Do you have a brush you’d like us to try out or you can recommend to us? I’d love to try out other ones! But I know I will definitely be using this one a lot!
