Why choose a Suitical Suit?

Post operative

The Recovery Suit reduces stress, fear and uncertainty after an operation when compared to a Elizabethan collar. The suit will avert your dog or cat touching the wound easily. As it is not a tight fit around the belly – air is able to circulate around the wound serving to keep the area dry. The interior of the Recovery Suit is light blue ensuring that any discharge of fluids from the wound can be observed. When the wound leaks, a porous sheet or incontinence pad can be inserted inside the Recovery Suit or between the double layers on the belly. 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 Recovery Suit after the operation will keep your pet warm.

Skin diseases

In cases of skin disease where protection is required the suit will prevent possible damage to the skin caused by scratching or biting.

In season and incontinence

The Recovery Suit will reduce the risk of blood or urine stains in your house. In contrast to standard in season shorts it is very difficult for your pet to wriggle out of a Recovery Suit. Making this a more hygienic option for you and your pet!

Features - 

The Recovery Suit is comfortable, hygienic and keeps your dog or cat warm. In cases of incontinence or if your pet is in season the Recovery Suit can also be fitted with a sanitary towel or a pants liner.

Recovery Suits are available in a range of styles. These are recognized by colour. The blue and pink camouflage suits are for dogs, gray camouflage suits are for cats.

The cat suits have a specially tailored space under the tail. For the majority of cats, the Recovery Suit can remain fastened when the cat is using the litter tray.

When walking the dog, only the rear side of the suit needs to be opened. Simply roll the suit inwards at the belly side or fasten it back onto the outer sides of the suit at the base of the tail.
