This pet grooming glove is made of silicone and quickly collects shedding fur which peels off as a mat. If you are crafty you can keep the fur to combine with wool to make your own yarn! The pets enjoy the petting! Getting rid of fur will help prevent mats forming on long haired cats and dogs. Combing can be painful if there are mats and sever matting often calls for a visit to the vet to cut them out. Pets will enjoy their grooming session with this glove.
