I have been asked this question way too many times from people in Boca Raton who are looking to get their pets clean and free of mats. Here’s what I recommend:
First, if your pet has a lot of hair, then combing them out is probably not going to work. You need to use a vacuum cleaner or a brush that grabs the matting while pulling away the hair (like a wire brush).
Second, if your pet’s skin looks like they’ve had some sort of chemical burn, then you may want to consider using a professional dog groomer Boca Raton. This may involve shaving off the matting and removing any dead skin cells.
Third, if your pet has only a small amount of hair and no visible matting, then you can try brushing them yourself. If you’re lucky enough to have access to a carpeted area, then you can simply grab the back of their legs and start brushing outwards towards the center of the body.
Fourth, if you don’t have access to a carpet or anything else that could help remove the matting, then you might want to consider getting your pet professionally groomed.
There are a lot of tutorials and videos online where you’ll find out how to properly groom your pet without causing any damage.
