The secret use for flea combs
Other than the obvious, a flea comb is also many a groomer’s secret tool for face and fine work. Those fine teeth with extra-fine spacing between them, not only trap uninvited guests like fleas and their droppings - but also do a fantastic job picking up super fine hairs in tricky areas, such as around the face. They get in to hard-to-reach areas more easily and are great for toy breeds for areas like fluffy legs on Pomeranians.
They are great for a final check on cat coats also to pick up missed, shed hair stuck in the coat. A handy ‘picking’ tool also for getting out fine or stubborn debris like dried eye gunk and food stuck in beards.
