HOW TO PUT THE MPS-HEAD COVER® ON THE DOG?

We know how important it is to be able to quickly dress and undress your dog, which is why our MPS-Head Cover® is made of soft and high-quality material. It is important however to keep monitoring your dog if the snug fit isn’t too tight. Getting the Head Cover on and off your dog is simple, so let’s take a look!

 

  • Step 1: Optional pads: For extra soft protection for the ears and/or head when needed, you can first insert the MPS-Head Cover Pads® in the MPS-Head Cover®. Open the pocket, take a pad and place the Velcro on the Velcro in the pocket;

 

  • Step 2: Head closing strap: place the Head Cover on the dog’s head and close it by fastening the Velcro straps and popper (snap) button (use at least two rows of popper (snap) buttons);

 

  • Step 3: Neck closing strap: close it by fastening the Velcro® straps and popper (snap) buttons (use at least two rows of popper (snap) buttons);

THE USER MANUAL

HOW TO USE THE MPS-HEAD COVER CORRECTLY!

Te MPS-Head Cover® is easy to put on and has a perfect fit due to the adjustable head circumference, neck circumference and neck length. Important: do not overtighten the straps as this could lead to breathing and circulation restriction.

 

To secure the MPS-Head Cover® it is recommended to use at least two rows of popper (snap) buttons for the two closing straps.

 

Important: make sure to take out the internal flexible ribs from the MPS-Head Cover® and to fasten the straps and popper (snap) buttons before you start washing.

Adjustable fastening straps

The Head Cover is fully closed by way of adjustable fastening straps with Velcro and a row of snaps. The snaps ensure that the Head Cover fits as snugly as possible. Moreover, it reduces the risk of bleeding in the ear caused by the dog shaking its head. There are two adjustable fastenings: the adjustable strap under the chin and the adjustable strap around the neck for a perfect fit. To secure the Head Cover properly, it is important to use at least two rows of snaps with the two fastening straps.

Please note: do not secure the Head Cover too tightly as this can result in breathing problems and blood circulation problems;

Close

Special pockets for the Head Cover Pads

The Head Cover comes with two specially designed pockets on the inside near the ears. These bags hold the Head Cover Pads (available separately) for extra soft protection. A dog’s ears can also be inserted into these bags to prevent wound discharge and ointments from sticking to the dog’s fur. The Head Cover Pads can be placed in either one or both bags to protect one or both ears, respectively.

Should it be necessary to cool one or both ears (after seeking advice from your vet), these bags can also be used to hold cooling pads.

Close

Elastic cord & light-blue inner layer

The Head Cover comes with an elastic cord. This cord ensures that the front of the Head Cover closes around the dog’s head as much as possible, protecting any wounds, bandages and the skin of the ears and/or head should the dog have skin problems, such as an othematoma (bleeding ear).

Close

Flexible supporting ribs

These internal flexible plastic ribs prevent sagging as much as possible and support the Head Cover in protecting wounds and/or bandages. Remove these ribs from the Head Cover when washing.

Close

Adjustable skull length

A Velcro strip can be found at the back of the Head Cover for shortening the skull length for a tighter fit, if necessary.

  • Please note: do not secure the Head Cover too tightly as this can result in breathing problems and blood circulation problems;

Material specification

The Head Cover is made from high-quality cotton, Invista Lycra four-away stretch and a denim blue material on the outside. The breathing double-layered composition ensures the Head Cover stays well secure and can be easily observed.
