Prior to a surgical procedure, it is a common practise to shave the surgical site, couple this with an anaesthetic a fall in core body temperature can ensue. The use of a Medical Pet Shirt after the operation will keep your pet warm.

The Medical Pet Shirts are available in three different types. These are recognized by colour. The blue shirts are for dogs, the red shirts for cats and the green shirts for rabbits. They are different by shape and sizes. The red and the green shirts have especially tailored space under the tail.

For the majority of cats, the red shirts can remain fastened when the cat is using the litter tray.
When walking the dog, only the rear side of the shirt needs to be opened. Simply roll the shirt inwards at the belly side and fasten it with the special designed hold up system.

The rabbit shirt is fully based on the anatomy of the rabbit. The measures and openings of the shirt are adjusted.
Sizes are overlapping. In case of doubt please choose the smallest size possible. This is important especially with cats.
