How do I put a Medical Pet Shirt on my cat?
The Medical Pet Shirt has a larger opening at the back below the tail(cats can use the litter tray without removing the shirt) and a narrower hole for the head. It is comfortable, hygienic and machine washable at 30 degrees. For cats with short legs, put the head through first, then insert the legs into the relevant openings one by one. Pull the Medical Pet Shirt down towards the tail as far as it will go. The two ends of the ventral side can be affixed using the press studs between the hind legs and below the fabric on the cat? back. Make sure the tail has enough room for ease of movement.
The Medical Pet Shirt is ideal for use after surgery (sterilisation) and for incontinence. The Medical Pet Shirt can reduce stress, anxiety and uncertainty after surgery compared to a collar that can often obstruct the cat's view. The cat is not or hardly able to reach the wound. Because the Medical Pet Shirt is not tight around the belly, the wound is sufficiently aired, and should remain dry. The Medical Pet Shirt is light blue inside the belly, so any seepage from the wound is visible. A panty liner can be applied inside the shirt, or between the double layer at the abdomen. During anaesthesia cats are often shaved before surgery, and body temperature is lowered. The Medical Pet Shirt will keep the cat warm after surgery. The Medical Pet Shirt is a tool, not a treatment. In case of skin conditions, these must be treated with suitable medication. The Medical Pet Shirt can then be used to offer extra protection.
What size and colour does my cat need?
Measure your cat from collar to tail to get an accurate idea of how big a shirt it will need. It is better to be slightly snug rather than too loose. The leopard print shirt is specially made for cats and is available in sizes XXXS to S. The leopard print shirt is intended for cats after surgery. Because the shirt has an opening below the tail, the cat can keep the shirt on when it uses the litter tray.

If the cat is incontinent, you should choose the blue variant because the red one has an opening to allow for urination. The blue shirt was actually made for dogs, but also fits cats. This shirt is suitable for incontinent cats and in cases where you want to use a panty liner in the shirt. Please note: The blue shirt does not allow for use of the litter tray.

We loved this as it was xxs, we could only get xs locally, our cat is a small girl at only 6lbs and this fitted her well, and was a much better alternative to a plastic collar , although she only needed it for 10 days I'm glad we bought it, it made things much easier for her and us, and the print was very cute!
My kitten has been wearing her suit for 5days and despite an initial shock she has not tried to take it off so it’s definitely doing its job and protecting her wound Nicely! Would highly recommend also love the leopard print!
Very nice recovery shirt, would definitely recommend.
I bought this as my cat had a wound on his back that he mustn't lick. The shirt worked well, was easily fitted, but his tail was restricted. I cut the shirt to give it a little more room, he was happier but he then managed to get out of the shirt twice!! Luckily by that point the wound was sufficiently healed to be able to be licked. I would've been worried about overheating of my cat had it been hot weather as he did sweat in it as it was. But all in all it was 100% better than a cone.
we bought this to try an stop our kittens from trying to suckle from the granny, making her sore. The only problem I had was choosing the right size, although it was somewhat big, it did the job, and it will always come in handy if the boys ever have an op. Will be purchasing a smaller one for the girls. Fantastic.
