ROBIN SEMINOLE, Florida 4/4/2013 3:00:23 PM We finally purchased the Furminator and I wish I'd known about it years ago!! Our choc. lab sheds like crazy. The first time I used the Furminator (rec. by groomers) I filled a small trash can with fur/hair!! What a difference it makes!! I don't know why Vets don't recommend them, maybe they just want their groomers to make some $$!
