This wooden brush is used to groom animals. Its wooden handle is lined with lots of thin, strong wemp straws.

Grooming brushes are used to groom all domesticated animals. Grooming raises your animal husbandry skill, it helps diseased animals to get healthy, and it helps preventing animals from catching further disease.


  • Activate the grooming brush, right-click an animal, and select Groom.

If the option does not appear, then this type of creature cannot be groomed. If the animal has already been groomed recently, you will get the message that this animal is already well tended.

You check the feet of the <animal> and make sure all is in order.
