    I have a trick that I used on my horses tail and it seems to work great on Reggie keeping his hair very smooth and smelling wonderful!!

    Infusium23 leave in conditioner.... For people ...it comes in a tiny spray bottle option that is great to keep by the bed so he gets treated nightly.

    Stops dry skin and everything.

    With the horses I would get the big bottle and soak the horse in it after its bath. He was silky smooth.

    Before you cut the hair icon_yikes try it ....

    Good Luck

    All the horse people here swear by it.

    Where can you purchase it, and do you know if it is available in Canada

    I get mine at Walgreens.....

    but I found a site
    http://www.drugstore.com/qxp14763_33...o_dry_hair.htm


    Hopefully that will help.

    I am sure there are more options (sites) if you search the net.

    Thank you for the suggestions on brushes. Can I buy them at a regular pet store?

    Cathy T- I have a Mason Pearson brush I use on my own hair. Do you use a regular human one or do they also make dog brushes?

    Thank you!

    Carpet coat is something that can happen to their coats after they have been neutered when very young. Maxx was only 6 mths but one of his testicles hadn't dropped and when they scanned him to find out if it was going to drop, they found it was stuck to his rib cage. The Vet thought it best to remove it as it wasn't going to drop and could have turned cancerous.

    Their coats become very thick and fluffy, almost like soft cotton wool and they just grow and grow . Last time Maxx went to the groomers she had 4 bags of fur from him

    He is like a big wooly bear but does get very knotty and so needs lots more grooming than Charlie does.


    Here's what a website said about Mikki brushes....
    The slicker brushes are designed to be used with a soft stroking action, enabling the shaped stainless steel pins to ease tangles and matts and remove loose/dead hairs from the undercoat leaving the top coat clean and healthy.

    http://www.edirectory.co.uk/pf/pages...75+303&cid=880

    They have very soft edges to the pins so don't scratch or dig into the furbabies' skin.

    I never use any brushes or combs on my babies' coats unless I first test them on the skin on my arms (no, I'm not ultra hairy, I just like to make sure they won't scratch or hurt them).

    It's a regular human hairbrush. I don't even own one, heck only the best for the dogs, I'll just use a conair plastic vent brush for myself

    Another tip is to use a metal flea comb. I spray the mat with the Infusium 23 Leave-In treatment (as Kimmisue mentioned - it works great!), and just tease the mat out with the flea comb. It's works perfectly, as long as you use a metal one!
