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 zebra print shirt is specially made for cats and is available in sizes XXXS to S. The zebra 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.

What if the Medical Pet Shirt doesn't fit?
To check whether or not the Medical Pet Shirt fits your pet, you can take the item out of the package and hold it up next to your cat. This will allow you to see whether or not it fits. For hygienic reasons, this item cannot be returned if it has been in direct contact with your pet. Should we conclude that the shirt is stained, has been worn, is covered in hair, smells bad or has been washed once the item is shipped back to us, it will not be returned to you. In this case, the item will be given to a local charity. Unfortunately, we have to apply these rules as we are often confronted with Medical Pet Shirts that have been returned in a used condition.

Excellent product. Unfortunately the instructions for putting it onto said moggie should inlude, "keep plasters handy to patch up hands after fitting". :-)
Very good product, would definitely recommend.
MPS is the only brand of recovery suits used at our local vet's which is already a good sign. However they have got only red suits for cats and we wanted our kitty to have more versatile garments) This one is very comfy, good cotton, reliable buttons. And - zebra pattern!) True to size as well. Generally - great choice for your cat!
Got the vet to put it on my kitten when she got spayed whilst still sleeping. It replaced the need for a cone of shame and prevented her and our dog from licking the kittens wound. It has healed beautifully after 1 week of wearing the suit. I liked the fact that it was designed so that she was still able to use her litter tray whilst wearing it
