- Recommended by veterinarians
- Alternative to an e-collar
- Can replace a bandage
- Dogs can move comfortably
- Can be worn with a collar
Your dog’s collar can be pulled through the loops around the neck on the inside of the Suit.
- Easy hold-up system for walks
In many cases, the surgical area for the male is very close to the urination area. The suit is completely closed (regardless of gender) to ensure that the entire torso of every physique is protected. In order to be able to walk your dog or check the wound, we have developed a hold-up system. The suit can be rolled up inside and secured to the chest with press studs. For the best protection, the suit must always be closed again after a check or a walk outside.
- Safe for dog & environment
- Patented breathable design
- Soft stretch band
A soft, elastic and protective stretch band around the front and hind legs and around the tail ensures that the Recovery Suit® does not rub and cut into the legs and tail of the dog. Dogs can move and heal in complete freedom. However, it is important to make sure that your dog is fitted with the right size, and to make sure that the shirt is not too tight. For animals where the surgical area and/or dermatological problem runs between the shoulder blades towards the neck, it is desirable for this area to be protected as well. Therefore, the Recovery Suit® is equipped with a longer, soft, elastic neck protective collar.
- Inner layer & pocket
The interior of the Recovery Suit® is partially light blue so fluid loss can be checked by the veterinarian or owner. In the event of fluid loss, a sanitary towel can be applied on the inside of the suit or between the double layer. If necessary, an ice pack can also be inserted between the double layer.
It is very difficult for the dog to open the Recovery Suit® because the closure is at the rear. However, it is quick, safe and easy for the owner or veterinarian to put on and take off. We advise to close all press studs to keep the shirt perfectly in place.
- Machine washable & reusable
When To Use
An alternative to a Cone or E-Collar: The Recovery Suit® is a professional alternative to the collar. The Recovery Suit® covers and protects the problem area against licking, biting and/or scratching instead of covering the pet’s entire head. By restricting the pet’s head with a collar, sounds are amplified, movement is restricted, and pets will bump into furniture. This often results in more stress. That is why we developed an animal-friendly alternative: the Recovery Suit®.
Help with shedding: Dogs lose a lot of hair throughout the seasons, especially on the torso since this area contains the largest amount of hair. The Recovery Suit® covers the entire torso, catching hairs in the shirt. Make sure to groom your pet regularly and to remove hair from the Recovery Suit® daily.
After medical procedures: Did your pet undergo a medical procedure near the torso? The Recovery Suit® protects wounds and/or sutures on the torso. Thanks to the comfortable fit, the animal can recover in complete freedom. Less stress for a faster recovery!
In-heat or incontinence: The Recovery Suit® reduces the risk of blood or urine stains in your house. In the event of blood or fluid loss, a sanitary towel can be applied on the inside of the suit or between the double layer. In contrast to standard in season shorts it is very difficult for your pet to wriggle out of the Suit. Making this a safe and hygienic alternative for in season shorts!
Hot spots or skin conditions: The Recovery Suit® covers and protects hot spots, wounds and other skin conditions on the animal’s torso. In this way, the problem area can heal in complete freedom.
Dogs over-grooming themselves: Licking behavior can be caused by several factors, like hot spots, wounds, allergies or skin conditions. Due to excessive licking, the wound or affected area could become larger and even infected. If this area is situated on the dog’s torso, the Recovery Suit® could be used to cover and protect this area.
Nursing dogs: Since the Recovery Suit® covers the entire torso, accidental breeding could be avoided. Moreover, the Suit® helps to reduce weaning by covering the bitch’ nipples. Since the Suit® covers the female abdominal area, it can be unsnapped for set feeding times for puppies.
How to put on: We know how important it is to be able to quickly dress and undress your dog, which is why our Recovery Suit® is made of soft and stretchy high-quality material. The Recovery Suit® has a snug fit to prevent your dog from wiggling out. It is important however to keep monitoring your dog if the snug fit isn’t too tight. Getting the Recovery Suit® on and off your dog is simple:
Roll up the Recovery Suit® with the middle head opening in your hand. Make sure that the light blue inner layer is facing down. Insert your dog’s head through the opening.
Followed by inserting one leg into the provided smaller leg opening and the other leg into the other remaining smaller opening.
Now pull the Recovery Suit® over your dog’s body all the way to the back.
The lower belly flaps must be pulled between the hind legs towards the upper part near the base of the tail.
Secure the two flaps with the snaps/poppers. We advise to close all snaps/poppers to keep the suit perfectly in place.
Take a good look around the legs, neck and tail to see if there is enough room to move and breathe!
