Excessive licking, grooming, biting or chewing. This is a common problem in dogs and the most common place is their front and hind legs. Can this be dangerous? If a dog licks or scratches his legs excessively, the affected area often appears as a reddened, moist and painful area. This is also known as a hotspot, and the skin has become inflamed or infected. A good diagnoses, treatment and protection are essential for a good and fast recovery. That is why we have developed front and hind leg protection: the MPS-TAZ® Single Front Leg Sleeve, the MPS-TAZ2® Double Front Leg Sleeves and the MPS-HLS® Hind Leg Sleeves.

Excessive licking or scratching behavior can have many different causes. That is why it is important to consult your veterinarian for a suitable diagnosis and treatment. Itchiness caused by an allergy or certain type of food is often the wrongdoer, but excessive licking can also be caused by pain somewhere in your dog’s body. This is often the case for older dogs with arthrosis. In addition, there could be a behavioral cause, such as stress or anxiety. So, the first step is to consult your veterinarian for a good diagnosis and treatment.

The next step is to protect the front and/or hind legs. If the dog cannot lick or scratch the affected area anymore, the healing can start. Are you looking for a single front leg protection? Choose the MPS-TAZ® Single Front Leg Sleeve. This sleeve is symmetrical in design, making it possible to be used for your dog’s left or right front leg.

If both front legs need to be protected, you can choose the MPS-TAZ2® Double Front Leg Sleeves. These sleeves protect and cover skin problems on both front legs. Moreover, a soft protective layer has been added for (older) dogs that require additional comfort at the level of the elbows.

Finally, we have developed the MPS-HLS® Hind Leg Sleeves to protect both hind legs in case of skin problems for example. These hind leg sleeves must always be used in combination with the MPS-TOP Shirt 4-in-1® (sold separately).

Thanks to the Medical Pet Shirts leg protection, dogs can move comfortably and freely. But with less stress for a faster recovery!
