Toots has really thick hair. I've taken most of her undercoat out. She does'nt get any mats now, just tiny knots occasionally.

What did you use Rosie? My comb doesn't seem to get much out at all on Amy yet it does with everyone else.... tried various combs

Rachel actually, we were looking at the furminator for Leo back before we gave up on having him in long coat, as his coat is soooo thick (Leo and Amy really are twins, born on the same day and everything ahah) but the furminator specifically says "not to use on lhasa apsos".
I'm not sure why, but yea after reading this we weren't so keen on trying it, if even the manufacturers tell you it's a bad idea!

Thanks for this Lia, Ive just bought some `Yumega boost` and `Yumega show dog` for Poppy to give her lots of goodness. She is 7 months old now so hopefully this will prepare her coat from inside.

Thanks Elodie, wow i wonder why it says not to use on a Lhasa? I'm sure my groomer used one on the girls?? I will ask her next time i see her... she also used something called a 'coat king'.... not had time to look this up but im thinking it is similar to the furminator. xx

The coat king strips out large areas of the undercoat fast. The furminator takes out some top coat and undercoat. xx

You can now get a Furminator specifically for long coats, maybe that's what your groomer used Rachel? x
