- 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!

This is ideal for when my dog is in season
I ordered these for my two chihuahuas to wear post op after being spayed. I followed the sizing advice on the site to the letter and my dogs both fitted well inside the sizing range given for the smallest size shirt so I ordered four of them, one and a spare each. The shirts arrived and I opened one and tried it on both of my dogs. Although it fitted snuggly around both of them it was far too short in the body to do up unless I stretched it excessively. I decided to ask the vet for advice and I was told the shirt was too small and we had to make other arrangements. I’ve returned the unworn shirts for a refund.
Very pleased with the prompt delivery, and a perfect fit for our Bernese mountain dog bitch (we ordered the XL) who is quite happy to wear it after her operation.
A great fitting suit with easy to open and close poppers. Currently being worn by my Irish Wolfhound post spay. The only complaint from her is that she gets nervous when I undo the poppers to allow her to go out (natural after intrusive surgery). You can also fix the poppers together on top of your dogs back so the tail part doesnt fall to the floor when the dog goes to the toilet. A great product and much better ans less stressful than a cone.
Loved this so much I bought another. Bear loved it too and doesn't want to take it off
