What is a Deshedding Brush?

Your pet may be shedding, but that doesn't mean they need to lose their fur. There are ways to manage the fur and tangles in your pets' coats so that they don't end up with mats or knots. One of those ways is with a deshedding brush!

Shedding Cycle

There are four types of shedding cycle and this applies to dogs, cats, rabbits and other fur animals. Lets go over each phases:

  • Growth phase - when the hair grows

  • Regression Phase - the hair reaches its dead end and stops growing

  • Rest Phase - the hair becomes weak

  • Shedding Phase - when the hair falls and new hair grows in the follicle

What is the purpose of a deshedding tool?

The purpose of a deshedding tool is to remove excess fur from your pet's coat. This can be done by combing the hair with a deshedding brush, or by using another type of brush that has teeth on it.

The use of these tools will also help prevent tangles and mats from forming, which is especially important if you have long-haired pets. It’s also great for keeping them comfortable during hot weather in summer or cold weather in winter!

How to tell if your pet needs a deshedding tool?

If your pet has a long, dense coat, you might need to consider a deshedding tool. A regular comb will not be able to work on their fur because it will get stuck in the mats and tangle up.

If you have an oily coat and/or matted fur, then it's time to get a brush! Oily coats are prone to matting so if he gets wet enough for this type of grooming problem then he could end up with some serious knots that need removing. Matted fur can also cause skin issues like itchiness or irritation so don't hesitate when it comes time for maintenance; just ask yourself how much damage his shedding is causing before taking action!

Why do my pets shed?

Pets shed to keep their coats healthy. The amount of fur your pet sheds depends on their breed and the season, but some dogs will shed more than others.

A deshedding brush can help manage your pet's shedding by removing dead hair from their coats and helping to keep them clean and shiny.

A deshedding brush can be an effective way to manage fur and tangles in your pets' coats.

A deshedding tool is a tool used to help manage fur and tangles in your pet's coat. It can be used on all types of pets, but it's important to know what kind of pet you have before deciding whether or not to invest in this type of grooming product.

Deshedding tools come in different sizes and shapes, so it's important that you determine which one will work best for your pet's needs. There are three main types: dog brush, cat brush, and human hand brush (this last one is not recommended). Each type has its own advantages and disadvantages—the most important thing here is finding out which works best for your particular animal!
