Knot Comb was designed primarily to remove knots from pet fur. Matts are more challenging. After reading the previous tips, you are ready to try Knot Comb. Remember not to remove several knots or large areas all at one time. This will avoid frustration and pain for your pet.
Get your pet used to the noise by pressing the on button a few times before you start combing, then prepare removing any tangles without pressing the on button on Knot Comb. Always comb in the direction of the fur.
Now you are ready to start. When you find a knot, simply back off a little, press the on button, and move the comb towards the knot slowly allowing it to cut. Avoid pulling. If it is a big knot, separate it and get rid of it a little at a time. The blades will occasionally get bogged down with fur, be sure to brush it offoften during use.
