The JW® GripSoft® Slicker Brush is ideal for daily brushing to remove dead and shedding hair. It features an ergonomically designed rubber-sheathed handle with Gripsoft technology that provides you with extreme comfort and precision when grooming. Metal teeth in two different lengths lift shedding hair from the undercoat and loosen lightly matted portions of fur. The teeth are turned 90 degrees away from the skin keeping them parallel to the skin to prevent "raking" your pets skin and make grooming more comfortable for your pet. Very effective when used on double coated breeds with thick fur.
