HOW TO PUT ON?

HOW TO PUT THE SHIRT ON?

We know how important it is to be able to quickly dress and undress your rabbit, 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 rabbit from wiggling out. It is important however to keep monitoring your rabbit if the snug fit isn’t too tight. Getting the MPS-Medical Pet Shirt on and off your rabbit 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 rabbit’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 rabbit’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 breath! You can adjust the snaps if needed.

THE USER MANUAL

THE USER MANUAL

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

 

  • 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 rabbit regularly to make sure the fit is not too tight. We recommend keeping your rabbit under supervision of a responsible adult at all times while using the Medical Pet Shirt. Please consult your veterinarian if your rabbit’s behavior is changing or when your rabbit 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 the press studs before washing;
  • We recommend using a laundry bag;
  • Wash the Recovery Sleeve 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 rabbit’s wound, surgical area, hotspots or more…!

 

TIP!  To ensure that your rabbit remains protected, two Medical Pet Shirts are often purchased. While one Medical Pet Shirt can be washed, the other Medical Pet Shirt can be worn. When your rabbit needs to wear the Medical Pet Shirt longer than a week, it’s always better to have a back-up Medical Pet Shirt!

FEATURES OF THE MEDICAL PET SHIRT RABBIT

Soft stretch bands

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 rabbit, but that the rabbit can move and heal in complete freedom. However, it is important to make sure that the rabbit 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.

Closed design & on the rabbit toilet

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 rabbits when using the rabbit toilet 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 rabbit 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

Easy (un)snap & adjustable

It is virtually impossible for the rabbit 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 take off the shirt and the adjustable snaps can make the shirt slightly looser or more secure when needed.

Material specifications

The MPS-Medical Pet Shirt® is made from high-quality organic 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 rabbit warm after surgery. The patented Dutch design, years of experience and continued development means the shirt is fully perfected and adapted to the cat’s anatomy.

Extra space has been provided at the abdominal area, enabling air to circulate well and the wound to heal faster. To promote optimal hygiene in general and especially for your pet, the shirt is machine washable up to a temperature of 60ºC / 90ºC or in an autoclave at 121ºC (for delicate fabric), making it much harder for bacteria, viruses and mould to survive.
