Pet Deshedding Tools (cont.)
Which Deshedding Tool Should You Choose?
Most brushes and combs do essentially the same thing: They remove dead hair from your pet before it has a chance to fall out. So which is right for your pet? That depends, because different coats respond best to different combs and brushes.
Depending on your pet's coat and its tendency to tangle, you may want more than one deshedding tool. Bird's must-have coat-taming trio includes a blade-on-a-handle comb, a slicker brush, and a coarse-to medium metal comb.
If these suggestions mean you've been using the "wrong" brush for your pet's coat type all this time, that's OK. As long as you and your furry friend are both happy with the results, don't worry too much about which deshedding tool is recommended for which species or coat type. In the end, successful grooming "boils down to what works for you," Bird says.
