oh, you brushed your pet once?

was it with a furminator shedding tool?

they might be pricey but they are amazing! get one for your furry pet. there is more fur to be shed out

this in only a month or 2 of "furminating" my rabbit she is still shedding...

I know it takes out a lot of fur, but does it really cut down on the shedding!? I have two short hair dogs, but they shed a lot. I've used a curry brush on them and a de-shedding tool (the one that looks like a bear trap) but my one dog still sheds like crazy. She has a very thick short coat and if the light is just right I could see the hair sprinkling off of her as she walks

i think at a certain time it really made her coat thinner and you could see the line or thin and thick coat. now is about the time they do that shedding before winter (i know the horses are doing it) and so there is more fir again

On further investigation I'm miffed my cats will both need their own brush due to very different coats *boo*

Marmite is a domestic short hair and Merlin is a ragdoll.

it would be expensive for 2 brushed but i know they do have long and shot hair ones. or you could buy a short hair one first and see if it work on the long hair and if it does, you wont have to but another brush!
