The Ancol Ergo Shedding Blade can be used to effectively strip loose and dead hair from your dog's coat. The blade is double sided, with small teeth on one side and larger teeth on the other. The small teeth are for shorter coats, the larger teeth are for use on longer coats. The blade can be used when closed for small dogs or smaller areas on the dog's body. The blade can be opened up to remove loose hairs from larger areas such as down the dog's back. The Shedding Blade is particularly useful when your dog is moulting. The Ergo range from Ancol has a variety of tools to maintain your pet's coat, skin, and claws.
