The Flowbee hair cutter can be used on dogs and other pets with a specialized pet attachment. This pet attachment is sold separately. Before using the Flowbee hair cutter on a pet, the animal must first be shampooed and combed to remove all matted fur.
No more than ½ inch of fur should be removed at a time by the Flowbee hair cutter. Flowbee uses the suction of a vacuum to hold hair in place while recessed blades cut. Rick E. Hunts invented the Flowbee in 1986, and it has as sold over 2 million units worldwide as of 2000.
