Medical Pet Shirts are manufactured using breathable, stretchy Cotton/Lycra fabric, giving complete freedom of movement without compromising on strength or durability.

Applications:

Protection of wounds and bandages after surgery –

  • Reduces stress, fear and uncertainty after surgery compared to an Elizabethan collar, due to snug and comfortable fit.
  • Gives warmth to the animal when waking up from anaesthetic, or if shaving was needed for surgery.
  • Double skin fabric across the belly to promote air circulation around the wound.
  • Prevents the animal licking the wound.
  • Inner rear pouch for insertion of icepacks or pads to help ease discomfort.
  • Light coloured inner fabric to aid inspection of any wound discharges.
  • Blind button hole between shoulder blades for passing IV-Line if required.

Skin Diseases (After consulting Vet) –

  • Minimises injury to skin due to scratching, licking or biting.
  • Promotes faster healing – medication cannot be licked from skin if covered with the Medical Pet Shirt.

When in season or incontinence –

  • Reduces risk of blood or urine stains in your house.
  • In contrast to standard in season shorts it is very difficult for your pet to wriggle out of a Medical Pet Shirt.
  • When in season, or with light to moderate incontinence, a hygiene pad can be inserted into the inside of the shirt.

Please Note: The animal may need time to get used to the shirt. Distracting the animal with a toy can help. It is recommended to keep the animal supervised, especially outdoors.

  • Comfortable and snug fitting.
  • Easily fitted with a sanitary towel or incontinence pad.
  • Hygienic and easy to fit.
  • Machine washable at 30 degrees.
  • Light coloured inner fabric to ensure any wound discharge can be observed and inspected.
  • Double layer fabric to hold pads or ice packs if required.
  • Blind button hole between shoulders to pass IV-line if required.
  • Developed in collaboration with veterinarians.
  • Adjustable with Velcro and/or straps.
  • Toxic free materials.
  • Multipurpose.
XX Small

Many cats are still able to use a litter tray unimpeded whilst wearing a shirt as the cat shirts have been designed with a larger opening at the tail.
