The Knot Remover is a convenient and safe grooming tool to remove knots and small mats when they occur in your dog’s coat. Gently place the pointed section of the tool under the knot and carefully cut the hair beneath the knot. We suggest to use a smooth ‘back and forth’ action to cut the knot away. Replace tool when the blade is blunt. Avoid excessive pulling, as this may cause stress and discomfort.
