Breana' Posted January 14, 2018 Report Share Posted January 14, 2018 Hi guys, my Rook is 9 years old and we're having some issues with matted fur on his hind legs. I have brushes, combs, clippers, thinning shears, sprays, shampoos and conditioners, but I can't seem to keep him from getting matted. I'm in nursing school and unable to play with him for a good number of hours during the day, so I'm thinking he just lays on the fur that becomes matted. I like to brush him out 3 times a week at the very least to try and keep it up. Obviously there are a number of issues here, namely that I could groom more often and prevent him from laying around on his back end, BUT I'm also wondering if a few of the products I'm using are making his coat too soft. Often times I use a detangler since it seems to help at the time that I brush, but soft fur/hair seem to really exacerbate and accelerate his matts! Maybe not, I guess I don't really know. Has anyone here dealt with matting to what seems like an excessive degree? Aside from spending more time brushing them out, was there a product or tool you felt significantly helped? Maybe even advice on how often to groom as I may be way way way under doing it? I know it seems like a silly question, but we've had this problem even when I was able to spend more time on him.
