product information

The Suitical Dog Recovery Suit (AKA Medical Pet Shirt) is a protective dog vest for post operative care, wounds, skin disease, skin issues and allergies, when in season, for incontinence and after neutering operations (spaying or castration). This veterinary approved, breathable body suit allows healing to take place whilst protecting and offering you peace of mind.

Suitical dog protective suit

Depending on where the wound or injury is, these protective shirts can be much more secure, effective and convenient than using an Elizabethan dog collar and can even reduce anxiety and stress. Like a baby grow for dogs, these postoperative suits are designed for a dog's specific shape and needs.

The lightweight and breathable stretch fabric is made from Cotton and Lycra. This protective dog vest offers good protection, comfort and warmth after operations or in cases of skin disease, whilst allowing your dog to retain freedom of movement.

It has a double skin around the belly enabling pads to be inserted in the case of fluid loss, incontinence or when your pet is in season.

The Suitical medical pet shirt fully protects your dog's torso and rear end. It needs to be unfastened at the rear when your dog needs to toilet.

Post Operative Recovery

dog recovery suit

- Reduces stress, fear and uncertainly after an operation compared to a standard collar, thanks to the snug and comfortable fit.
- Prevents your dog touching the wound easily.
- It is not tight fitting around the belly. The double skin fabric around the belly part of the vest is roomier to promote air circulation.
- The interior is lighter making visibility of fluid from the wound easier.
- In cases of large amounts of fluid from the wound a panty liner or similar can be inserted inside or between the double layers on the belly.
- Before the operation the pet will usually be shaved and an anaesthetic will cause their temperature to drop. After the operation the vest gives warmth to your dog whilst they recover.

Skin Issues

dog medical suitAs well as wound healing and protection, this medical pet shirt can be used in cases of skin issues and diseases where protection is required. This protective vest will prevent possible further damage to the skin caused by scratching, licking or biting whilst also allowing the skin to breathe, promoting faster healing. It also helps any medications to remain longer on the skin.

In Season and Incontinence

This product will reduce the risk of blood or urine stains in your house. In cases of incontinence or if your pet is in season the medical pet shirt can be fitted with a sanitary towel or pants liner. In contrast to standard in season shorts it is very difficult for your pet to wriggle out of. This is more hygienic for you and your pet.

Size Guide

With your dog standing, measure along your dog's back, from nape of neck (approx. where a collar would sit) to base (start) of tail. For in-between sizes we recommend going with the smaller of the two sizes for slim dogs and the larger of the two sizes for broad dogs.

 Size Length (cm)
 XXX Small 22-35cm
 XX Small 33-42cm
 X Small 40-45cm
 Small 43-51cm
 Small+ 49-57cm
 Medium 56-69cm
 Medium+ 61-72cm
 Large 67-76cm
 X Large 74-82cm
 XX Large 80-92cm

IMPORTANT - Please always measure your dog.

Made of stretch material cotton / Lycra. Comfortable, hygienic and can be washed at 30º C.

The open ended back end makes fitting and removing the shirt very easy. With small dogs the head must be inserted first into the shirt followed by each front leg (separately) into the openings provided. With large dogs (long legs) it is easier to insert one front leg followed by the head and then the other leg into the provided openings. Then pull back as far as possible over the dog's body. The two straps on the belly side are secured by threading them between the rear legs and then attaching them under the shirt near the base of the tail. Make sure that there is enough room for tail movement.

Please note that, as with bandages or other protection, a determined dog may pull, tear or chew at the product. Use under supervision. Please also note that the vest needs to be unfastened at the rear for the dog to go to the toilet.

If your dog’s injury is only at the top half of their torso and you don’t need lower back, belly or incontinence protection, please see the shorter Protective Pet Topshirt.

Important - Returns and Exchanges

While we understand that these items need to be tried on, returns and exchanges are only permitted for items and packets received back in a new and resaleable condition. Please do not return items in anything less than an 'as new' condition and do not cut the packaging open. This would invalidate your right to return. Please use the resealable opening to remove the item from its packet.

Black Surgical Suit
Wednesday, 5 August 2020  |  Evelyn

I Ordered this for my cockapoo after he had surgery. Was very sceptical about the purchase wondering if it was as good as the description, I shouldn’t have because it was exactly as described. It was soft and stretchy and I was able to put it on my dog with ease. Going on the sizing I ordered the xsmall which I had reservations about but I followed their measurements and it was perfect. I wouldn’t hesitate using this company again they are first class.

Excellent service and product

I ordered the recovery suit at 2.30 pm and it arrived by midday the next day! So important when you have an unexpected emergency operation. Top marks for taking some of the stress out of the situation for me. The suit is a perfect fit and does the job of preventing licking. Would like stronger and less fiddly poppers for my arthritic hands but otherwise perfect. Wi definitely order from you again.

Good quality. Easy to put on due to stretchy material. Although not overjoyed about having to wear a garment, our dog was comfortable whilst wearing it, even in the heat of the recent sun. MUCH, much better than having to wear the plastic medical neck cone!

We bought this for our Whippet after her spaying operation, it was a perfect fit and she seemed very comfortable. The press studs make it very easy to take on and off and it washes well. Delivery was quick and price was great. Very happy
