The slicker brush is designed for the primary purpose of removing any loose hair, dirt, mats, or knots and thins the undercoat for cats. The nylon pins will smooth the coat and leave a polished, well-groomed finish.
It is important to be gentle when using this brush on your animal. First, spray a small amount of water over the pet’s coat. Start with brushing in the direction of hair growth to smooth the overall coat (note: if your animal has longer hair, lift the brush a little as you work your way through). If you reach any large knots, it is advisable to get these out using a metal comb and then to continue with the slicker brush. Once the body is done, you can use a soft bristle brush for the face and ears, followed by a pin brush on the body to get the fur looking smooth and shiny.
Always clean your brush after each use. Remove the bulk of the hair and soak for approximately 10 minutes in hot water with soap or a pet-safe disinfectant. Dry the brush and store away until next use.
