- Product Description
The Medical Pet Shirt looks like a canine onesie. It can be easily removed thanks to the opening at the back. When going for a walk, it can be secured with press studs near the tail. In case of incontinence, or when a bitch is in season, a panty liner or sanitary towel can be fitted. The Medical Pet Shirt is comfortable, hygienic and machine washable at 30º Celsius.
How do I put it on my dog?
For small dogs with short legs, pull the shirt over the head first, and then insert legs into the relevant openings one by one. For larger dogs, it is easier to first insert one leg, then the head followed by the other legs, and finally pulling the shirt up your dog's torso, pulled back as far as possible. The two ends of the ventral side (between the hind legs) can be affixed using the press studs. Ensure there is sufficient room for the tail.
After surgery, for skin disorders, in oestrus or incontinence.
- After surgery
- The Medical Pet Shirt reduces stress, anxiety and uncertainty after surgery (compared to the clear plastic collar)
- The dog cannot 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 dogs are often shaved, and body temperature is lowered. The Medical Pet Shirt will keep the dog warm after surgery
- During oestrus or incontinence
Using the Medical Pet Shirt means less blood or urine stains in your house. Unlike the pants, dogs find it difficult to remove the shirt so it is hygienic for you and the dog.
Please note: The Medical Pet Shirt does not have a hole in it to allow for urination. However, you can easily open the back using the press studs and roll the shirt up when taking your pet out.

What size should I order for my dog, and what if the shirt doesn't fit?
Measure your pet from the collar to the beginning of the tail to make a good estimate. It is better for the shirt to be slightly tight than for it to be too loose. The following sizes are the lengths from the neck to the tail of the dog. Please note: because we are often faced with returns of Medical Pet Shirts which are dirty, we apply the following rules for returns. If the Vetsend employee receives a Medical Pet Shirt which is dirty / stained / worn / contains dog hair / has a dirty smell or has been washed after use, we reserve the right to not refund money to your account. We will not return the shirt to you, but donate it to a local animal shelter.
TIP: To prevent hair ending up on the product or it becoming dirty, we recommend putting a T-shirt on your dog first.
It's important to know how to measure your pet properly to ensure that you purchase the right size. The How to determine the right size for my pet article offers insight and tips on the best way to do this!

My vet put this on my Shih tzu after she had a spleenectomy. It worked a treat, wound healed, she didn't worry it and it seemed to keep her cosy and not anxious at all. My Lhasa Apso is very reactive to fireworks and thunder. I've resisted buying thunder shirts previously as expensive when you don't know if it work. Decided to put on him last night before fireworks started and it worked brilliantly. Just put it on again this evening as expecting more. Will purchase another for my very anxious bichon x shihtzu for when we travel across the Irish sea next year. Love it.
It seems a good product, but put down 1 star as my personal reason for buying it didn’t suit, even after the vet recommended it. I wish I knew about this product previously when my dogs had other ops, as would be perfect to protect the wounds and stop him wearing the cone of shame. I like you can clip it all the way down or leave it up so they can still go to the toilet without taking it off. My dog had surgery on his shoulder and have been told to be careful otherwise where they’ve reattached the ligament and tendon they could break. This shirt would have meant the shoulder needing to be manipulated to get in the shirt, so it was never used. Maybe some poppers/zip on the back would have been better so it could slide on would have helped making it usable in my case. I’ve returned it for a refund. But if I have a dog in the future it would suit then I wouldn’t hesitate to buy one and prevent the cone of shame! Plus give me some peace of mind.
Top quality product, delivered when stated. Really please and would highly recommend.
Comfy, stretchy, non itchy, fits perfect. Can’t recommend it highly enough
I found although she needed the size for her girth it was too long in the body and keot slipping down her back legs so had to modify to suit the purpose.
I bought this product and have been really pleased with it- so has my dog! Given he is a Bernese Mountain Dog - not much fits him - but the sizing on this product was great and prevented him feeling very miserable with a cone - also saved the backs of my legs and the house from damage!!! It was received very quickly after ordering. Well worth it and good value.
