Tucker has been shedding pretty bad lately and mom said between him and the two cats her allergies are starting to bother her a lot. Tucker has the standard double sided brush, pins brush on one side, soft bristles on the other. It takes out some of his hair but not a ton. So I was wondering if anyone could recommend a type of brush for his type of coat. It's not short enough to use the cats' rubber brush on, but it's not exactly long either see: I wanted a furminator but I'm not going to spend almost $40 on a brush. So any ideas?
