While there are many helpful grooming tools that pet parents are likely to have in their grooming kit—like undercoat rakes, de-matting tools and de-shedding blades—a wet brush for dogs or cats can have a significant impact on the condition of your pet’s coat.
Also popular for use on human hair, the Wet Brush brand’s Pet Brush is designed to be used while your pet’s coat is still damp—although it is still effective at detangling dry hair. The long, thin bristles work to massage your pet’s skin and hair follicles to improve blood circulation and stimulate follicle growth. The wet brush is also designed to gently remove tangles without excessive pulling or yanking on strands of fur.
While the spacing of the brush’s bristles is made to prevent painful detangling, it also has the added benefit of avoiding additional bacteria from forming between the pins—as sometimes happens with fine-tooth combs.
