The Kazoo Slicker Brush has uniquely shaped wire pins housed on an air cushioned pad that enhances your grooming technique and reduces any excessive brushing force. Use it to remove tangles prior to bathing, or after bathing to remove excess dead hair.
Slicker Brushes are effective to help remove loose hair, knots and debris from your dog's coat. Select the right size slicker brush when grooming. Always check for knots and tangles with a comb after slickering.
