This comb isn't just stylish, it's versatileit can be used on dogs or cats of all breeds, sizes and life stages. Detecting fleas and their eggs before their population increases is an invaluable step in preventing an infestation. The Safari Wood Handle Flea Comb is an incredibly easy to use, affordable tool that allows you to not only comb out adult fleas and their eggs, but get rid of other dander, debris, and flea dirt that flea larvae need to progress to their pupal stage of life. For best results, run the comb through your pets coat so that the teeth make contact with their skin, and make sure to comb thoroughly around their ears, nape of their neck and base of their tail. It's recommended that you dip the comb into a cup of mild detergent between strokes.
