i personally wouldnt get a metal toothed comb unless i had a long-hair with difficult tangles,then i wuld still rather cut it instead of pick with a metal tooth!! i found what works for my 2 girls is a rubber toothed cat's ZoomGroom brush. then there not expensive and quite successful in removing fur-even on my apparantly shedless rex

I have a long haired bunny and use metal toothed brushes. Actually, I use to use the metal brushes on my short haired rabbit as well.

I've been using the furminator on my long haired rabbit for the past couple of months and out of all the brushes I've tried that one works the best for me. You have to be careful with it though, because if your not gentle you can hurt them with it.

I use the cat-sized zoom groom as well - I find it works relaly well if it's a bit damp - helps all the fur to stick to it better.

For bunnies that don't like being brushed, just wetting your hand before you pet them, or rubbing them gently with a damp towel will help to remove loose hair

okay thanks. i think i'm gonna start him with a plastic brush to get him used to it (my mom turned out to have one that she bought for the kitties and never opened) then move up to something else if it works out. :-)

I was also going to suggest wetting your hand and running it over them. I have sweaty palms and learned that it a great way to get hair off of bunnies.
I also like the furminator. The rubber brush I have didn't seem to work well on my bunnies. I use it on my dogs now.
I also "pluck" them when they are shedding really badly. Bunny fur is all over my house even though the buns are always upstairs.
