Bella is 15 months old  We've just moved from Devon to Norfolk, and were so proud when her new vet said "She's perfect! And so beautiful! Bella's going to be spayed on Tuesday (she has a little hernia) and we're concerned about the collar she'll have to wear. We've bought a comfy collar, but

Grooming brush?
« on: November 12, 2018, 06:28:58 PM »
We've been using a fairly cheap brush on Finn, although it is quite effective, but he still develops matts, especially under his ears.  Any recommendations for a good springer-grooming brush that works on matts (without being too painful) and gets the burrs out too???? Thanks

I use a normal hedgehog brush, you know sort of pin cushion one side & brush the other.  I try to brush every few days, Iíve found putting a few drops of veg oil on Hollies ears round the knots or burrs etc helps get them out ;D

Never forgetting Fawn.

That's a good idea - the oil, I mean.  We have the same sort of brush, and I guess if it works there's no point in investing in something more expensive. Thanks  :)

I really like this one and always use it on Alf. Not too harsh but works on tangles and also gets loose dirt and burrs off. I bought the comb as well which is great for cleaning the hair out of the brush! Both from pets at home.
