I use the same type of human brush on Puddles and keep her fur trimmed (I have salon quality scissors so they are very good at cutting fur) and cut out mats. She is old and hates being brushed with anything else. The brush doesn't get out all the fur as she has such a thick undercoat, but it does get out the surface fur so cut down on fur balls.
I purchased a slicker for her years ago and she hates it.
