The Mikki Matt Splitter is a handy pocket sized plastic splitter which easily cuts through small matts, and you can take this with you wherever you go, so if they get a matt when you are on a walk away from home, simply whip out your matt splitter and get your pet back to it’s beautiful self again. Use a sawing action with short strokes for effective cutting. Always keep the matt splitter level with the skin and upright to avoid digging in. Avoid using the matt splitter on sensitive areas, or where there is loose or folded skin. Never pinch/lift the skin when cutting as this can result in serious injury.
Directions For Use
Designed to cut through tangled & matted hair. The tapered guide penetrates the tangle and allows the blade to cut the hair. Brush or comb the area to be treated – this will help locate the genuine matts.
Use a “sawing” action with short strokes for effective cutting – never force the Matt Splitter through matts as this will cause discomfort to the animal and is less effective.
Use a Mikki Grooming Comb to clear the loose hairs.
Always keep Matt Splitter level with the skin to avoid digging in (fig.1)
Keep Matt Splitter upright and at right angles to the skin – avoid having it at a slant (fig.2).
Avoid using the Matt Splitter on sensitive areas where there is loose or folded skin. Never lift the skin into a “peak” (fig.3) when cutting as this can result in serious injury. If in doubt use clippers or scissors with care. If your pet is extensively matted seek professional help.
Important: keep out of reach of children. Use extra care when using any grooming aid with sharp edges.
