The Hartz Mountain Corporation | Date: 2011-08-18

An improved pet grooming tool is provided for grooming pets and removing loose or detached hair from their fur coats, while removing substantially no or acceptably little live hair and without the need to include any blade portion for engaging the loose or dead hairs. The tool can also collect the removed hair as opposed to permitting most of it to fall to the floor. In a preferred embodiment of the invention, the grooming tool includes an elongated handle portion having proximal and distal ends, a head portion at the distal end of the handle, and a carding portion on the head. A tool axis extends in a proximal direction from the head to the proximal end and in preferred embodiments of the invention, corresponds to the direction in which the tool is drawn across the animals coat (the grooming direction). The grooming tool also has a plurality of tines, with a generally triangular shape when viewed from their sides or top, such that they narrow when extending from base to tip.

Methods and formulations for treating animal ectoparasites, effective against parasites such as fleas and ticks are provided. The methods comprise topically co-administering a non-mobile insect growth regulator and a mobile insect growth regulator to the animal. Parasiticidal formulations for treating animal ectoparasites are also provided, which can be safe to use and avoid the many common deleterious side effects of conventional topical formulations. The topical formulations comprise a combination of two insect growth regulators, a non-mobile insect growth regulator and a mobile insect growth regulator. The topical formulation can be packaged with the two insect growth regulators together or packaged to prevent mixing of the two insect growth regulators prior to administering the topical insecticide formulation to the animal.

The invention provides an ectoparasiticidal formulation which comprises an ectoparasiticidal agent, preferably fipronil, as the pesticidally-active ingredient, together with a crystallization inhibitor selected from the group consisting of alkyl-substituted pyrrolidones, and optionally, one or more organic solvents and/or co-solvents. Preferably, the crystallization inhibitor is N-octyl pyrrolidone, and the organic solvent, if present, preferably comprises diethylene glycol monoethyl ether. The ectoparasiticidal formulation surprisingly yields a significantly enhanced speed of kill. Methods for manufacturing the formulation, as well as methods for treating animals infested with ectoparasites, are also disclosed.

A grooming tool for pets or animals. The tool can include a handle portion and a grooming portion. The grooming portion preferably includes a plurality of tines arranged in first and second rows such that the first row of tines is vertically separated from the second row of tines. In addition, each of the first and second row of tines preferably includes alternating first and second tines, wherein the first tines have a longer length than the second tines. Moreover, preferably, the longer first tines and the shorter second tines in the first row of tines alternate compared to the longer first tines and the shorter second tines in the second row of tines. The first and second row of tines may also include different radii of curvatures, tapered outer diameters, etc. Moreover, in another preferred embodiment of the grooming tool, the tool may including a raking portion to dislodge the hair or fur from the grooming portion.
