When it comes time to groom a matted coat, many professionals rely on silicone-based sprays. Although they are not the only choice on the market, silicone sprays coat the hair with a sleek finish for easy mat removal. Some silicone sprays are formulated to work best when applied to wet hair and allowed to dry, while others can be brushed immediately after application. Most products made for pets use the same grade of silicone used in beauty salons, according to Grooming Smarter, and many of them condition hair, remove foreign objects, repel dirt and urine, and prevent static, which may contribute to mat formation. Sprays such as Quicker Slicker, Eqyss Survivor and Ice on Ice are just a few products that pet owners turn to when mats appear.

Everyday activities can cause small tangles in your pet's coat. Left un-groomed, these tangles can turn into difficult-to-remove mats. When brushing or combing your pet is not routine, mats become bigger, which causes your pet discomfort because the skin is pulled almost constantly. Hair mats tighten each time your dog gets wet, too, and become even more painful for the animal.To remove a mat, first your dog's coat to straighten the coat and remove loose or dead hair around the mat. Next, use a mat-removing tool to strip out the mat. Thicker mats may need to be cut out with a scissors. Be careful not to cut your pet. Use a blunt-nosed scissors.Most mats commonly form:Here are some things to know before attempting to remove a hair mat. Do not try to pull it out by hand. There are special tools for removing mats. Also, be careful on mats that involve the undercoat, since removing these mats will naturally cause more pulling on your pet's skin. Note: As a rule, mats bigger than your thumb need special care. Your pet's skin is very delicate and thinner than yours, so if your pet's hair is severely matted, or has any really large mats, it may be wise to consult a professional groomer.The Mat Remover Dematting tool is a grooming implement uniquely designed to remove matted, tangled hair in long-haired pets without losing coat length.First, make sure your dog is comfortable and calm. Pet him gently and offer him treats as you start to de-mat. Once your dog is relaxed, hydrate his hair by spraying his coat with a coat conditioner, like no-rinse shampoo. This makes it easier to separate the clumps, eases the pulling of a brush or comb and helps release any debris that might be caught in your dog’s hair. After the coat is saturated, separate as much of the mat as possible with your fingers. If you are able to partially separate the mat, it can sometimes be removed with a de-matting comb. Hold the base of the mat with your fingers to avoid pulling your dog’s skin and pull the comb through the mat from the base.Use a mat comb if a regular rake or brush doesn't remove cat mats.
