I've tried some really bad flea combs. This one is really good quality - and actually works.
The handle is easy to hold, and the teeth are snug in the plastic. The teeth are close together and made of steel - so they actually pick up fleas. Only combs with steel teeth pick up fleas effectively.
The best way to get fleas is to keep a small bucket of soapy water nearby. As you comb your cat, dip the flea-covered comb in the water. The soap keeps the fleas in there, helping to clean the comb before you continue to comb the fur. You may want to shake the water off the comb before using it, if your cat is extremely sensitive to water.
I had never used this type of comb on my cats before our last vet visit. The vet used a similar type of comb to check for fleas, and it was excellent at combing and removing fine debris from my cat's fur. I came right home and placed an order on Amazon. I was happy that these combs come in a pack of two because I usually purchase a back-up when it comes to smaller items.
The first time I used one of the combs on one of my cats, he absolutely LOVED IT. So, I decided to try it on the other two and got the same positive response. This comb does a great job at removing loose fur, and it does not cause mats or tangles. I have 3 domestic shorthaired cats, so I'm not sure how it would work with long-haired cats, but it does a very good job combing through the fur and picking up any kind of debris (i.e. foxtails, small burrs, dirt, etc.).
The prongs are not too sharp, and the cats are very comfortable when they are being groomed. I use two combs at a time, and...
There's two main reasons why I like this flea comb. The first reason and most important is it doesn't have a handle. My cats for some reason when I approach them with a flea comb that has a handle on it they become freaked out and run away. This flea comb is small enough to fit in your hand and hide it from them, while approaching, then I begin to comb them with it, by the time they see the small comb they are relaxed by the experience and accept the comb as something good. The second reason is the metal teeth, they don't bend or break and last a long time.
