DRESS UP YOUR PET DAY
Discover our medical protective apparel.
Today, on January 14th, it’s dress up your pet day, but is it ok to dress up your pet? Dressing up your dog or cat ‘just for fun’, for example putting on a pumpkin costume for Halloween or a Christmas costume during the holidays, can be quite stressful and uncomfortable for your furry friend. Such costumes are often quite uncomfortable and restrict movement, they are often made of non-breathable material and could be unsafe for your pet.
Medical protective apparel for pets, on the other hand, is safe for pets and their environment and protect for example after surgery, during recovery, in case of fear and anxiety.
Does your pet suffer from a medical condition or does he need surgery? Aftercare is essential for a good recovery. Medical protective apparel like the Medical Pet Shirt® covers and protects your dog, cat or rabbit and its environment during recovery, after a medical procedure, with a medical condition or whenever protection is needed.
Bad weather and bandages, casts or dressings on your dog’s legs are a difficult combination. Due to bad weather, these materials can easily become dirty and wet and will need to be changed quickly. Wounds and sutures could even get irritated or infected. In that case, it’s time for precautions for a pleasant walk. The MPS-Medical PetS Boot® is a water repellent paw protection to keep bandages, dressings and casts dry during a walk.
Dogs can’t sweat with sweat glands, as humans can. And where humans can take off a jacket, a dog’s coat remains warm and its body temperature can rise easily. Do you want to prevent heat stress in your dog? Try the DRY® Cooling Vest. This comfortable and easy to refill vest keeps your dog cool when needed. After filling it with water, the DRY® Cooling Vest will start cooling for one to three days.
Is your pet stressed or anxious? Protective apparel like the MPS-TOP Shirt 4-in-1® could help to relax your dog. This MPS-TOP Shirt 4-in-1® offers a gentle pressure around the chest thanks to the adjustable closure and elasticated lower band. This pressure can have a calming effect on dogs. This can be useful to reduce fear of traveling, fireworks, storms or separation anxiety for example.
Consult your veterinarian when you want to use protective apparel for medical purposes. Your veterinarian can recommend a suitable treatment. Keep monitoring your pet regularly to make sure the fit is not too tight. We recommend keeping your pet under supervision of a responsible adult at all times while using medical protective apparel.
