Fur-Ex is an advanced 3-point system from ProGroom, specifically formulated to assist in the removal of collected undercoat of double-coated breeds after the bath.
Used as directed, this system eliminates the need to pre-groom heavy undercoated dogs before the bath. Let our products do the job and use a forced air dryer to do the hard work.
STEP ONE: CLEANSE
Cleanse is a deeply penetrating yet gentle shampoo designed to cleanse and neutralize the ionic charge within the coat and remove all dirt, odour, and excess sebum. This prepares the coat for loose hair removal and begins the deshedding process.
STEP TWO: RELEASE
Release contains Protein ingredients which fill in damaged or rough areas of hair cuticle making a smooth surface that permits easy release of loose coat. Advanced silicone ingredients provide slip and allow dead coat to slide out with little or no force.
STEP THREE: CLOSE
Close is a mildly acidic silicone conditioning spray further seals the hair cuticle and promotes maximum release of tangled and collected hair within the coat. Spray application allows the groomer to adjust the amount of product applied to different areas of the coat as needed.
Directions for use:
For best results, always use all three of the FurEx system products. The ProGroom FurEx system has been designed to work together to greatly reduce the time and effort of removing collected undercoat. No pre-bath brushing is necessary with ProGroom FurEx system.
1. Place dog directly in tub, thoroughly wet coat and apply diluted FurEx Clean shampoo and work through coat completely. Rinse lightly and apply a second shampoo. The goal of the first shampoo is to thoroughly wet the coat; the serious cleaning happens with the second shampoo.
2. FurEx Release Conditioner can be diluted and poured through coat, or applied full strength to seriously packed areas such as ruff or hip area. It is important to treat the entire coat with the Release conditioner. Rinse well.
3. After toweling and/or blowing off excess water, spray damp coat thoroughly with FurEx Close spray. Lift coat from bottom up to insure that entire coat is treated. Spraylightly, but thoroughly.
Use a high velocity, forced air dryer to gently blow out the loosened undercoat. Brushing is only necessary in severe areas. Apply more spray product as needed.
On badly packed coats, consider using forced air dryer to push suds through the coat. When bathing twice, use a more diluted (10:1) shampoo solution for the first bath to help thoroughly wet a thick coat and follow with a less diluted (4:1) shampoo solution for thorough cleaning.
Force Drying Tips:
Use a cone nozzle or a small flat nozzle, or towel thoroughly to remove excess water before applying ProGroom FurEx Close spray. Best results are achieved by being systematic and thoroughly drying each area before moving to the next. Dry front to back, top to bottom. The greatest hair release will occur as the coat in any given area is thoroughly dry. The Close Spray will work as it dries.
To encourage the release of coat, gently wave the nozzle of your dryer from side to side 3-4 inches.
