I have never really looked at grooming brushes for my pomperanian, even after a good bath and brushing she seems to have a lot of knots any suggestions?

I am a groomer and what I suggest is a light conditioning spray....a slicker brush and possibly a a comb. If there are matts you can cut them out by using a thinning shear. Just remember to make sure coat is clear of all matts before washing. Washing actually makes matts worse.

Always brush her out before bathing her.I use a wide toothed comb on my Pom and also a larger pin brush.Blow dry her out after a bath using the comb.Poms fur can mat very easily and do require a bit of work.We also have the routine of brushing every night before bed.Doesn't have to be a long time.10 minutes or so,working out any knots and their coats stay very nice.

The trick is to brush frequently. We use a metal teeth slicker brush

what u need to do is brush her with a slicker brush and also have a metal comb to go through her to be sure there are no hidden matts...brush her well before bathing or the matts will become worse...dry her after a bath do not let her air dry and brush through her with the slicker brush and the metal comb...u can also use mane n tail spray in conditioner to help with the tangles...hope this helps good luck!!!

If she is getting too matted, take her to a groomer. Sometimes they get hidden matts, like around their toes that can pull their skin.

Actually, the FURminator comes with a warning NOT to use on mats or tangles. So be careful about that if you decide to purchase one ($50).

"Cautions:
Do not use the FURminator if the fur has tangles or matting. Do not use the FURminator if your pet has any sores, cuts, bruises, abrasions, or skin conditions."

I use a plain old plastic-tipped Goody (dollar or two) for Mimi, a pom/poodle/terrier mix.

Be sure that you are brushing BEFORE the bath. The mats get tighter in the water. The fur should be thoroughly brushed and free of mats befor bathing. Blow dry with a hair dryer while brushing, this removes all of the loose undercoat.
