product information

The Suitical Dog Recovery Suit (formerly 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, it is designed for their 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 of is light blue making control of fluid from the wound fluids easier.
- In cases of large amounts of fluid from the wound a pants liner (nappies) 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 Diseases

dog medical suitAs well as wound healing and protection, this medical pet shirt can be used in cases of skin disease where protection is required. This protective vest will prevent possible further damage to the skin caused by scratching, licking or biting. In turn, this promotes faster healing as medications remain longer on the skin.

In Season and Incontinence

This product will reduce the risk of blood or urine strains 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.

 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.

Excellent product and customer service
Wednesday, 15 August 2018  |  Cathy

Got suit for my pup after castration. He is very happy to wear it and protects his wound well. Ordered another one so I can wash the first. Really impressed with quick service, both suits arrived the following morning which is important when you need things in a hurry! Thoroughly recommend this product and website.

Excellent product. Well made, fitted Molly perfectly and she was happy with it on. It prevented her licking her wound after spaying and I could relax knowing it was healing. Much better than the “bucket “ on her head! Product arrived the day after I ordered it.

This was for my mum’s dog, a jack Russell, who has a skin allergy problem and scratches a lot. It has stopped her doing this and she loves wearing it, so a successful purchase. It was easy to order on the website and came the next day as promised. Mum also rang with a query and said staff were very nice and helpful.

This and related products make it far easier to deal with wound dressings and at the same time can often mean dispensing with the "Cone of Shame".

Practical but also looks good
Wednesday, 11 July 2018  |  Linda

Our vet recommend a Recovery Vest after our Cocker Spaniel had had some growths removed from her side and back of her neck. Could not use a Buster Collar as it rubbed against the back of her neck. Came across D for Dog website and gave it a try. Brilliant, Not only does it do the job but its easier for her to get around and quite trendy styles too. Pleased with my buy and the excellent customer service from D for Dog. Thank you.

Great product as alternative to cone of shame
Tuesday, 3 July 2018  |  Gemma

Bought this suit for my boy after being neutered and luckily he only needed it for one night but so much better than the cone of shame. No stress as easy to put on and he was very comfy in it all night even though it was a warm night. Great price and quick delivery so would recommend the suit and d for dog!

Excellent product. Did a wonderful job of protecting a very large scar that was in easy reach of back foot. Worth every penny.

Great idea
Tuesday, 19 June 2018  |  Robert

I put this on my dog after her operation yesterday. The vets loved it as the " cone of shame " can be problematic. My dog was a bit concerned at first, but has warmed to it and kept it on all day yesterday and overnight. The poppers at the rear are a good addition to allow her to do her business without removing the jacket. You can pop them together at one side to prevent the ends from getting soiled. Excellent!

I purchased the recovery vest after my dog was spade. We tried the cone and she hated it. The recovery vest was a fantastic purchase and well worth the cost. Also received an A1 service.
