The VetGood® Protective Medical Suits for Cats and Dogs provide pets with the protection they need to recover from injury or surgery, and gives owners the peace of mind that the delicate healing process is on track. By preventing licking and scratching of wounds and dressings, they can heal more quickly.
US Veterinarians who specialise in Surgery, Internal Medicine, Spay/Neuter, and Dermatology recommend protective suits for better wound management and post-surgical protection.
VetGood® medical suits are two-piece, machine washable and made of 95% cotton and 5% Lycra for comfort. The intuitive design makes them a breeze to put on and take off while ensuring good wound protection. Anatomically constructed to ensure a good fit, they come in a variety of sizes ranging from toy breeds, Poodles, Beagles, Cattle Dogs, Collies, Pit Bulls, Retrievers, and Bull Mastiffs.
For toileting, the rear half of the dog suits must be removed. Cat suits have a larger opening at the back, and may not need to be removed for toileting depending on how closely they fit your cat.

Case Study: Tilly
Our GSD, Tilly, underwent a routine neutering operation in 2019, but due to a complication, a second operation was required the following day. Her stitches were opened to allow internal investigation, and her wound was re-stitched afterwards. Unfortunately, her wound did not heal as quickly as it should have, and she needed to wear a cone for several weeks.
The affect on her was quite dramatic. She could not exercise with the others, and even indoors she found it very difficult to move around without bashing into things. In short, she became subdued. It was no fun for us or the other dogs either, being caught on the shins all day long.
We switched her from the cone to a Vetgood Protective Medical Suit to allow her more freedom of movement. Although still on restricted exercise (no rough play with Toby!), her mood changed completely! Rather than being unhappy, she became calmer.
Indoors she was able to mix freely with the other dogs, and to wander around the house whenever she pleased. At night, and whenever we were not present, we put the cone back on, but we were able to stop doing so after a while as she showed no interest in her wound at all. It still took several months to heal (her wound was infected with an antibiotic-resistant infection), but eventually she made a full recovery thank goodness.
Suits sold individually.
Please note: These suits are comfortable for your pet to wear, and they can be very effective in protecting wounds, dressings, and minor skin irritations in pets, however, they do not offer the same level of physical protection as a plastic cone. We recommend that you supervise at first, and regularly check the fabric around the wound for signs of chewing or licking.
