These are just some of the pet brushes that I’ve used in the past. In fact, these are the 3 that I had used most recently to brush my dog.
Each is different in some small way. Therefore, each serves a slightly different purpose.
HOWEVER, I’ve found a pet brush that blows all 3 of those away. It’s called the Furminator!
I’ve been using the Furminator for years now, and without a doubt it’s my all-time favorite dog brush.

My dog recently got a really bad bug bite on his leg.
It irritated him so much that he immediately started itching and scratching (and licking) it constantly. Later that same day, the spot on his leg became raw (and hairless).
