A self-cleaning slicker brush is a grooming tool designed to effectively remove loose hair, tangles, and mats from your pet’s coat, particularly suitable for dogs and cats with medium to long fur. What sets it apart is its convenient self-cleaning feature, which simplifies the cleaning process and makes grooming sessions more efficient.
The slicker brush typically consists of a brush head with fine, short wires or bristles that are slightly bent. These bristles effectively penetrate the topcoat and reach the undercoat, gently removing loose hair and tangles without causing discomfort to your pet.
The self-cleaning mechanism is usually located at the base of the brush head and is operated by a button or lever. When activated, this mechanism retracts the bristles or wires, causing the accumulated hair to be pushed off the brush head. This allows for quick and easy removal of the hair without the need for manual cleaning or using additional tools.
