Designed to pull hair from the ears of dogs less painfully than by using a hemostat. The Hairmostat® has no clamps so it cannot accidently lock on the ear leather or a large clump of hair. It also has vinyl handles so it won't slip, offering a more secure grip, enabling the user to pull smaller amounts of hair at one time. It is made of stainless steel and is 5 ˝" long. It is also excellent for removing ticks.
