I bought a suitical for our dog after abdominal surgery. It was great and meant he only has to wear the cone of shame overnight. I ordered from D for Dog and the item arrived the following day. Great service and value for money

This vest worked very well after my Labrador had major surgery and had a neck wound and a large abdominal wound. It fitted perfectly and kept his wounds clean and dry and kept him warm. I was concerned about how he would toilet in the full vest but I simply pulled the back fastening up over his shoulders and fastened them to the front and that created a half vest whilst he was out. It was easy to pull it back down again. I would recommend this product. My dog seemed to love it and it went on and off easily due to the stretch. It worked well for us. ! It also washed well.
Bought this for our one year old collie after she was spayed as she looked so miserable in her lampshade collar and kept hitting me in the leg. The small plus was a snug fit, possibly should have got a medium. It did the job, stopped her licking her wound and easy to unpop when she needed to go outside
Our dog had an operation and kept banging the wound with the edge of her "lampshade". The suitacle softened the impact however she could still lick at the wound through the suit if the collar was removed for her to eat or drink. But we found a combination of a different collar with poppers and a bound edge and the suitical did the trick and at last the wound started to heal. Four weeks after the op she is still wearing the vest without the collar until the hair regrows. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because there are no instructions for putting on and how to fasten it when they go outside for a wee. In fact we don't use the official method of fastening it for toilet purposes because it came unravelled - but it is possible to just popthe trailing bits up at the back. she seems to find it comforting. An excellent buy. You have to remember to allow them some time without the vest so that the air can get to wounds.
Thank you for your review. I just wanted to say that the last sentence is not correct. This product is completely breathable and veterinary approved. It does not need to be removed to let the wound breathe. It can be left on 24/7 :-)

I ordered in time for my labradoodle's neutering and it worked perfectly. He was much happier in this than a collar and he didn't chew it. His wound has healed really well, in part at least, due too this suit.
