The Mini-stat is designed to pull hair from the ears of dogs less painfully than by using a hemostat. The Mini-Stat has NO clamps so it can't accidently lock on the ear leather or a large clump of hair.
The Mini-Stat can do everything that its larger version, the Hairmostat, can do. Except that its lightweight and smaller size makes it even easier to use on small dogs.
The Mini-Stat is gold plated stainless steel and emasures 3.5 inches in length.
The Mini-Stat is also excellent for removing ticks.
