does anyone else brush their chinchillas?

My vet told me i should comb their fur so i bought a grooming it =( it has one of thouse bendy wire brushes and a regular brush with soft bristles. the wire one workes well at getting out the little tufts of furr that were left from them freaking out and slipping fur after the vet held them and the other doesnt even go through their fur at all! it just flattens it. the thing is they dont like being brushed =( does anyone else brush their chinchillas?

I dont. they seem to take care of their own hygiene. I tried when I got my first chinchilla but he didnt like it, so I stopped.
Unless he has big mats and a unhealthy coat, I dont see the need.
