There are many kinds of pet combs on the market, which have different functions for different hair problems. Parents should choose the appropriate comb according to the pet's hair type. At ordinary times, the owner combs the cat and dog's hair, including needle comb, flat comb, bottom comb and knot opening comb (knife).
Needle comb: needle comb is used to comb many pets with long, fluffy and curved hair. For example, a pine lion, a lady, a bear, a Xishi dog, etc. will make the pet's hair more fluffy and light. The needle comb can be large or small. You can choose according to your pet's body shape. For example, small dogs and cats can choose small needle comb. For medium and large dogs, you can choose a needle comb with a larger panel. In this way, when combing the pet's hair, the owner saves effort and the pet is more comfortable. Due to the short teeth of the needle comb, it is difficult to comb the root of the hair when combing cats and dogs. When using the needle comb, the hair can be combed in layers, from the tip of the hair to the root, so that the hair comb can be loose and transparent without hurting the baby. Gently combing against the direction of the hair can create a fluffy effect. Note: the tip of the needle comb is relatively sharp, so when combing your pet, you must be careful about the thin parts of the skin, such as eyes, ears, belly, etc. do not pierce the skin of cats and dogs. At the same time, be careful not to stab yourself.
Flat comb and row comb: the most widely used comb is basically applicable to all cats and dogs. It can take care of disordered hair and remove shed hair and dirt, especially for pets with long hair. The spacing between rows of comb teeth is different, some are dense, and some are wide. Generally, the selection is made according to the pet's hair thickness and length. Pets with thick, dense and long hair shall be combed with a wide tooth row comb first, and then combed with a narrow tooth pitch or other combs. It is mainly because dense hair is easy to produce knots, and dense comb teeth are not easy to comb. The comb with dense tooth pitch can make the hair smoother and make the pet look more neat and beautiful. Usage: if the pet's hair is too thick, comb it layer by layer to avoid hurting the pet, and comb it along the growth direction of the pet's hair.
Depilation comb: for the changing season, the bottom comb is a good helper. It can effectively remove the dead hair and undercoat that have fallen off from the pet, which will not harm the healthy hair, and avoid the situation that the dead hair is not easy to clean. Usage: the frequency should not be too high. First comb the pet hair with a flat comb / row comb, and then use a bottom comb. When using, the comb teeth should be parallel to the skin as much as possible (do not let the teeth face the skin vertically), and comb along the direction of hair texture. Pay attention not to comb too much at the same part, and clean up the fallen bottom hair.
Knot opening comb (knife): as the name suggests, it mainly works on the knotted hair of long haired pets. The comb teeth are equipped with metal blades, which can cut off the knotted hair. Usage: comb along the direction of pet hair growth. In order to avoid cutting too much hair, do not comb backwards. Comb once a week or every other week. Hold the knotted hair and gently comb the remaining part with an open knot comb. In case of induration, do not use excessive force to avoid pulling off the villi. Instead, press and hold the hair root and comb it again. The fluff is easy to break when encountering the cutting edge, and the force should be measured when combing.
Massage comb: massage comb is a pet comb with massage function, which can effectively promote the blood circulation of cat and dog skin and relieve the pressure of pet. At the same time, the hair falling off can be removed during massage, which is suitable for all cats and dogs. Generally, the needle teeth of the massage comb are round and will not hurt the skin. In the process of combing the hair, it can bring comfort to cats and dogs and alleviate the muscle and mental fatigue of pets. The massage comb is simple to use. It can be combed along the direction of hair growth and can be used every day.
Comprehensive comb: in order to facilitate the owner to carry and store, many manufacturers integrate combs with different functions into one comb. The front and back sides have different combing effects, such as needle comb + massage comb, row comb with wide and narrow tooth pitch, etc.
Others: in addition to the common combs mentioned above, there are many combs for pets, such as rake comb, massage comb for bathing, flea comb for removing fleas, etc. The owner can choose according to the actual situation of pet hair
