Grooming question

I need to find a good quality brush that will brush into the undercoat of Jazz (a DLH). Haven't found anything that really knocks my socks off online. Any suggestions?

I've found that using a flea comb is good on mine, it get every little hair and no snags.

A good quality metal comb is what you need.
I groom for a living and find most brushes performances far inferior to what a good comb can do- at least on cats.

You'd be looking for something called a greyhound comb with fine teeth on one end and medium on the other. A decent one should run you $10-15 (USD). Anything super cheap just doesn't penetrate the coat and grab undercoat properly.

I agree that flea combs work best on long haired cats. Or a metal medium toothed comb. Metal seems to work best, it seems to penetrate down to the skin easier and glides better.

I have also found shopping in the dog grooming section of the pet store has a better variety. The flea comb I have was actually labelled as a puppy flea comb.

I have not found any type of brush I like. And I have tried them all.

Big plastic wide tooth comb is about the only thing my cat will tolerate, a fine tooth comb or brush will make her go away.

I also trim(saftey tip sizzor) the problem areas for her, that way we stay ahead of the matting most of the time.
