It kills fleas... Sometimes

Most of the time, the flea slips through the tines. I've killed a total of two fleas, and it only took five tries for each flea.
If you can't see the fleas, the product won't do you any good at all.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

This was a total joke, comb teeth will not come through, you have to go side ways to zap fleas, it does shock them and you have to actually try to trap them in order for them to die, they still move after being zapped if combed.

People have said the electronic sound causes their cats discomfort. Three of my 5 cats come RUNNING when they hear the sound announcing "comb and flea zap" time.
I would recommend this to a friend!

Works, but Emits High-Pitched Sound

The flea comb does, indeed, zap fleas as you comb your pet. We have both long- and short-haired cats and the comb worked equally well on both types of coats. However, all of our cats were upset by the constant high-pitched whine that the comb emits while it's on. They all squirmed and tried desperately to escape while the sound was present. If we turned the comb off and used it, the cats were fine.
If your pet isn't sensitive to (or upset by) very high-pitched sounds, then the comb will work fine for you. It would be helpful if Lentek found a way to dampen or shield the pet from the sound. Zapping the fleas is a great idea, but it only works if your pet isn't fleeing the scene.
I would recommend this to a friend!

the battery cover keeps popping off which makes it impossible to use. if anyone knows a way to make it stay on. i read that someone taped theirs up. other than that, the product works just ok.
I would recommend this to a friend!

Flea zapping is fun!

With the mild winter in Florida, this is a helpful tool that really works in a house with 4 pets. Topical flea preventatives just aren't enough this year. No more searching for the fleas or trying to trap them long enough to kill them. It is cool and gross at the same time!
I would recommend this to a friend!
