    Default Brush recomendations

    Hello all, back again.

    Finn has begun molting and is looking like a bit of a mess. He recently went through a bit of GI stasis and I think it could be to do with the hair building up in his tummy. He's all good at the moment but just wondering what brushes you use. He HATES being brushed which is a pain. I have the hair buster (the purple one with rubbery bits on the teeth) and although it works well with catching the hair he's not a fan and it seems to tug a lot. I was wondering if there's something more gentle that can grab onto rabbits silky fur. If not I might have to just power through but thought id ask at least.

    A lot of people seem to rate the Zoom Groom

    Never used it myself though

    If he hates being groomed what about a grooming glove https://www.petscorner.co.uk/great-small-grooming-glove

    We recently bought a grooming block and it has been AMAZING for my guys!! Takes all the loose coat out but doesn't pull out the good coat, no risk of damaging the skin as it just works from the surface, but it really gets the undercoat out. Might be worth sawing in half for smaller rabbits but you don't need any pressure to use it so it's just a case of being a little careful over bony areas. When it goes blunt (rounded corners) just rub it on a brick or concrete to sharpen it again.
    Amazon link, but most horse stores will sell them or similar. https://www.amazon.co.uk/LINCOLN-blo...28902036&psc=1

    I picked up a similar looking one from P@H that I saw while I was grabbing some hay after posting this

    It seems to work pretty well actually. It grabs the loose hair without being aggressive on his skin. It's not as efficient as the hair buster in getting out big wads of loose hair, but he doesn't seem to hate the p@h brush quite as much, but he still isn't a fan
