For many of our clients, we recommend the use of a Medical Pet Shirt, a professional alternative to a collar or full body bandage.The design is based on the animal’s shape and anatomy so fits snug as a bug! The breathable, stretchy fabric gives complete freedom of movement and with a rear closure (similar to a 'baby grow') the pet shirt is easy to fit, and not easy for them to wriggle out of!
+ The Medical Pet Shirt reduces stress, fear and uncertainty after surgery when compared to the standard Elizabethan collar (aka ''the lampshade'')
+ The interior of the Medical Pet Shirt is light blue, ensuring that any discharge of fluids from the wound can be observed.
+ If a wound leaks, a porous sheet or incontinence pad can be inserted inside the Medical Pet Shirt or between the double layers on the belly.
+ The use of a Medical Pet Shirt after the operation will keep your pet warm.
+ Post operation: To protect wounds and stitches, keep bandages in place and to keep your pet warm.
+ Skin disease or irritation: In cases of skin disease where protection is required the shirt will prevent possible damage to the skin caused by scratching or biting.
