    Default Best curry comb for washing dandruffy dog?

    I can't find a dog brush that I want. I'm thinking a Grooma soft touch curry (for horses) is probably what I'm looking for, but am wondering what others use. I have a weim mix that gets really dry skin esp in the winter and we have some fancy oatmeal shampoo that seems to help, but I want to scrub her down a little when she's wet to try and loosen it up.

    We went to a dog wash and they had a regular grooma type curry, but it was a little to stiff for her liking. I didn't see anything in the dog brush selection, so I'm thinking a horse soft curry or a bath mitt.

    Anyone have suggestions for a curry to use for bathing a dog? I have one of those jelly scrubber things in my trailer too that I could try.

    Poor dog always gets horse brushes. I keep a still brush at the door to knock mud off her before I let her in. It works way better than any dog brush and I swear she loves the good scratch.

    ETA- I hope this is okay to put here- since I'm looking at horse brushes...

    Yes. I use a grooma curry too when I bathe the dogs (when), it really removes the corgis' old hair in the undercoat and they love how it feels.

    And I also use an oatmeal or a lavender shampoo. I have found that if I water it down a bit before applying to the coat, it suds better.

    For itchy skin/coat, you may want to consider an oil supplement like Salmon Oil or DinoVite.

    yep! especially the ones that have the coarse nubbins on one side, and the fine nubbins on the other. they make a great canine chin scratcher as well. my old lab would come running if he saw me get it out of the drawer.

    Hmmm.... the doctor just told a friend to use salt on her son's scalp while it is dry to exfoliate, then bathe with Head & Shoulders shampoo. I would use a pet dandruff shampoo on a pet, but the salt might work!

    I actually just found that I think is like what you're talking about, made for dogs, for my super-short-coated pup. It was in PetSmart with the Martha Stewart stuff (ugh), but it's this one - I was cracking up at first because it looks like a horse curry, but the rubber bristles are soooo soft.

    Wow- emeraldsilver that brush does look like what I was originally looking for! I might have to stop by petsmart and check it out! Did it look like it would hold up to being used for bathing- since it says it's wood. Those nubbys look nice though. I think I'd take a massage with one!

    I'll have to try the salt think- but it sounds so drying. I guess I should get the jelly scrubber out of my trailer and give that a go first. The one I has has the thicker nubs on one side and softer ones on the other.

    Thanks for your advice!
