My dog groomer told me the brushes I've been using on my pals are not good for them, or their coats. She recommends I use this slicker brush.
A few weeks ago I reviewed the Furminator, a brush that removes great amounts of hair, and mats, from both my Cavalier King Charles and Main Coon cat. Today my groomer told me to throw it away! She showed me a number of small cuts on my pup that are a result of using that brush. Her suggestion is a simple slicker brush.
I like this brush and it works well on the smaller animals with lighter fur. It'll last a few months before the pins become bent totally out of shape. The quick release mechanism for hair is pretty helpful, and slightly bends the pins back into shape with each use. That said, I'm glad these are only $9 as they wear out in 3-6 months.
I love the ease of use and speed of the Fulminator. I can still use it, but not when the dog has really bad mats or stuff caught in her cottonball like fur, apparently it is too easy for her skin to get caught in it. Most of the time I'll be using a simple slicker.
