HOW TO PUT ON?

HOW TO PUT THE SHIRT ON YOUR CAT?

We know how important it is to be able to quickly dress and undress your cat, which is why our MPS-Medical Pet Shirt® is made of soft and stretchy high-quality material. The MPS-Medical Pet Shirt® has a snug fit to prevent your cat from wiggling out. It is important however to keep monitoring your cat if the snug fit isn’t too tight. Getting the MPS-Medical Pet Shirt® on and off your cat is simple, so let’s take a look!

 

  • Step 1: Roll up the shirt with the middle head opening in your hand. Make sure that the blue inner layer is facing down. Insert your cat’s head through the opening, followed by inserting one leg into the provided smaller leg opening and the other leg into the other remaining smaller opening.

 

  • Step 2: Now pull the shirt over your cat’s body all the way to the back. The lower belly flaps must be pulled between the hind legs towards the upper flaps near the base of the tail.

 

  • Step 3: Secure the two flaps with the buttons/snaps to each other. Take a good look around the legs, neck and tail to see if there is enough room to move and breathe! You can adjust the snaps if needed.

THE USER MANUAL

HOW TO USE THE SHIRT CORRECTLY?

This easy to put on and off MPS-Medical Pet Shirt® is specially designed for the anatomy of cats and can therefore only be used for cats.

 

 

Important information

Consult your veterinarian when you want to use the Medical Pet Shirt® for medical purposes. Your veterinarian can recommend a suitable treatment. Keep monitoring your cat regularly to make sure the fit is not too tight. Keep your cat under supervision of a responsible adult at all times while using the Medical Pet Shirt®. Please consult your veterinarian if your cat’s behavior is changing or when your cat has excessive licking/chewing habits.

 

 

Washing instructions

For longer usage, it is possible that the print of the Medical Pet Shirt® and the label could fade over time. With the washing instructions below, this process can be delayed. Washing, maintaining and handling of delivered items always remains the responsibility of the customer.

 

Instructions:

  • Always turn inside out for washing.
  • Fasten all press studs before washing.
  • We recommend using a laundry bag.
  • Wash the Medical Pet Shirt® up to a maximum of 90ºC/194ºF.
  • Never put the Medical Pet Shirt® in the dryer! Hang it out and let it air dry.
  • Do not iron directly over the print and never too hot.
  • Do not use bleach or other chemicals to clean the Medical Pet Shirt®.

 

Using bleach and other chemicals can cause irritations to your cat’s wound, surgical area, hotspots or more…!

 

TIP! Little (peeing) accidents can happen while wearing the Medical Pet Shirt®. To ensure that your cat remains protected, two Medical Pet Shirt® are often purchased. While one Medical Pet Shirt® can be washed, the other shirt can be worn. When your cat needs to wear the Medical Pet Shirt® longer than a week, it’s always better to have a back-up Medical Pet Shirt®!

USING THE LITTER BOX

USING THE LITTER BOX

Because of the specially tailored opening at the back, the majority of cats can leave the Medical Pet Shirt® fully closed while using the litter box. How easy is that, right!

 

We recommend to check the opening at the back from time to time while wearing the Medical Pet Shirt®.

WHEN TO USE

Alternative to the collar

The Medical Pet Shirts products are a professional alternative to the collar. The protective apparel covers and protects the problem area against licking, biting and/or scratching instead of covering the pet’s entire head. By restricting the pet’s head with a collar, sounds are amplified, movement is restricted, and they will bump into furniture. This often results in more stress. That is why we developed an animal-friendly alternative: the Medical Pet Shirts products!

Close

When having hotspots or skin conditions

Covers and protects hot spots, wounds and other skin conditions. In this way, the problem area can heal in complete freedom. Only the best for your pet!

Close

Limits overgrooming

Licking behavior can be caused by several factors, like hot spots, wounds, allergies or skin conditions. Due to excessive licking, the wound or affected area could become larger and even infected. If this area is situated on the torso, the Medical Pet Shirt® could be used to cover and protect this area.

Close

After a medical procedure

Did your pet undergo a medical procedure near the torso? The Medical Pet Shirt® protects wounds and/or sutures on the torso. Thanks to the comfortable fit, the animal can recover in complete freedom. Less stress for a faster recovery!

Close

Protection after neutering

After neutering, aftercare and protection of the surgical area are essential for a good recovery. The traditional collar often causes stress for pets. That is why Medical Pet Shirts has developed an animal-friendly alternative: the Medical Pet Shirt®. This versatile shirt protects the surgical area after neutering/spaying. Prevents pets from licking, scratching or biting the wound or sutures.

FEATURES OF THE MEDICAL PET SHIRT CAT

1 2 3 4 5 6 7

Blind buttonhole on the back

The blind buttonhole between the shoulders can be used to apply an IV without the cat being able to reach it. Open the buttonhole by cutting it in the middle of the seam. The extra stitching around the buttonhole helps to prevent tearing. 

 

Close

Soft stretch bands & collar fastening

A soft, elastic protective collar around the front and hind legs and around the tail ensures that the MPS-Medical Pet Shirt® does not rub and cut into the legs and tail of the cat, but that the cat can move and heal in complete freedom. However, it is important to make sure that the cat is fitted with the right size, and to make sure that the shirt is not too tight.

For cats where the surgical area and/or dermatological problem runs between the shoulder blades towards the neck, it is desirable for this area to be protected as well.  Therefore, the MPS-Medical Pet Shirt® is equipped with a longer, soft, elastic neck protective collar.

There are loops on the inside of the collar. The collar of the cat can be pulled through these loops and attached. That makes it is even more difficult for the cat to squeeze out of the MPS-Medical Pet Shirt®.

Close

Closed design & special opening for litter box

The shirt is completely closed (regardless of gender) to ensure that the entire torso of every physique is protected. The MPS-Medical Pet Shirt® can stay fully closed on most cats when using the litter box because of the specially designed opening at the rear. How easy is that!

We recommend checking the opening at the rear from time to time while your cat is wearing the shirt.

Close

Blue inner layer & pocket

The interior of the MPS-Medical Pet Shirt® is light blue so fluid loss can be checked by the veterinarian or owner. In the event of fluid loss, a sanitary towel can be applied on the inside of the shirt or between the double layer. If necessary, an ice pack can also be inserted between the double layer.

Close

Press studs for good fit

It is virtually impossible for the cat to open the MPS-Medical Pet Shirt® itself because the closure is on the back. However, it is quick, safe and easy for the owner or veterinarian to put on and off the shirt. We advise to close all press studs to keep the shirt perfectly in place.

Close

Material specification

The MPS-Medical Pet Shirt® is made from high-quality cotton and a four-way stretch Invista Lycra® fabric that is lightweight, breathable and comfortable like a second skin. This offers maximum freedom of movement and can help to keep the cat warm after surgery. Thanks to the patented Dutch design, years of experience and continued development, the shirt has been honed to perfection and adapted to the anatomy of the cat.

Extra space has been provided at the abdominal area, enabling air to circulate well and the wound to heal faster. For optimum hygiene in a practice and for the animal, the shirt is machine washable up to 60 ºC / 90 ºC or in the autoclave at 121 ºC (on sensitive tissue), which limits the risk of bacteria, viruses and fungi.
