Our Featured Products
Such a Great Product - Laura M. Veterinary
“Great product for both the owner and the pet. I’ve not met a dog yet that likes to wear the big awkward buster collars around their necks, so this medical shirt is a great product instead of the collar in prevention of the dog accessing surgical wounds or injuries in a more comfortable way. The dogs that i have used this product with have barely noticed/reacted to wearing the shirt so it must be comfortable for them!
Owners seem to love the look of their furry friends in a shirt (or doggy baby grow as they look like!) too!”
Far Better Than the Cone of Shame - Julie. Pet Owner
“I thought you might like some feedback on the dog medical t-shirt. I’ve used this on our dog since she was spayed on Wednesday.
I would like to say that the t-shirt has been great, helped keep her warm the first night and has stopped her licking the wound.
She’s happy wearing it and it’s easy to undo the poppers when she needs the toilet. A great product, far better than the cone of shame.”
Two Big Thumbs Up! - Serena. Veterinary Nurse
“I would like to give the Medical Pet T-Shirt two big thumbs up! As a veterinary nurse and owner, I understand the frustration of buster collars knocking into your knees (or even popping off!)
However, the Medical Pet T-shirt has saved me and my cat the stress that a buster collar brings.
I’ve seen it work wonders on patients, but seeing the results for myself was amazing. I always recommend it to client weary of the dreaded cone of shame. Both dogs and cats do amazingly well with it on.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why is there a strap with a press button / snap at the belly side?
This is the Hold-up system. When nature calls or when taking your dog out for a walk, the Medical Pet Shirt can be opened at the back and rolled inwards and towards at the chest. The lower part can then be fastened with the Hold-up system for extra security. For the best protection, the shirt must always be closed again after a check or walk outside.
How are the sizes figured?
For cats and dogs, the size of the shirt is best measured from the collar to the base of the tail. For rabbits, the correct size can be determined by the weight of the rabbit. Visit the product page and go to the size guide for detailed information.
Can a cat also wear a Medical Pet Shirt® for dogs?
No, the Medical Pet Shirt® for dogs and cats are different in shape and especially designed for the anatomy of a dog or cat. The Medical Pet Shirt® for cats have a bigger opening under the tail so the shirt can stay on while using the litter tray.
Why is there a + size for the size S and M?
Our products are continuously developed and improved based on the experiences and feedback of veterinarians and pet owners. We aim for the best possible fit for most dog breeds. The size gap between size S and M and size M and L turned out to be too big according to the feedback we received, which meant that some dog breeds did not get the best fit.
Therefore, we have added additional sizes between size S and L. In order not to have to change our current sizing, we decided to designate these sizes as + (S+ and M+). All information about our sizes can be found on the product page under 'Sizing guide’.
Is the Medical Pet Shirt® washable?
Yes the Medical Pet Shirt® is machine washable. We advise to follow the washing instructions below:
- Always turn inside out for washing.
- Fasten all the press studs before washing.
- We recommend using a laundry bag.
- Wash the MPS-Medical Pet Shirt® up to a maximum of 90ºC/194ºF.
- Never put the MPS-Medical Pet Shirt® in the dryer! Hang it out and let it air dry.
- Do not iron directly over the print and never too hot.
- Do not use bleach or other chemicals to clean the MPS-Medical Pet Shirt®.
Why is there a single orange coloured snap?
Our products have a single orange coloured snap, so you can quickly see that this is an original Dutch Medical Pet Shirts product!
Can dogs and cats tear it apart or chew on it?
Of course this is always possible. MPS-products are not made from Kevlar, because breathability is very important. Especially very angry animals can damage everything if they want. Fortunately, most pets accept wearing the Medical Pet Shirt and don’t do anything with it. Also, because we use very high-end fabrics, the fabric will not tear more when there is a hole in it. With excessive licking of the wound, a sanitary pad can be inserted between the double layer or inside the Medical Pet Shirt to keep the wound dry. We recommend keeping your pet under supervision of a responsible adult at all times while using this product.
What is the reason not having a hole at the belly part of the shirt?
If there is a hole on the belly side, which then must be large enough to fit all the breeds, the pet can still get to, lick or scratch the wound. Moreover, the surgical area is often located near the urination area. The risk of getting a wound infection is also higher with a hole at the belly part of the shirt. There is already extra space around the belly part to help circulate air for a faster recovery. The Medical Pet Shirt can be easily opened for taking the dog for a walk. The shirt can be rolled up inside and secured to the chest with a press stud. After a walk, it is important to check the surgery area. For the best protection, the shirt must always be closed again after a check or a walk outside.
Do all dogs, cats or rabbits tolerate the Medical Pet Shirt®?
Most dogs, cats or rabbits tolerate the shirt. It’s the same as using a onesie or T-shirt except that the Medical Pet Shirt® is special equipped and made for animals offering pet owners a one stop solution for their pets. Some cats are really athletic and can manage to get out of the Medical Pet Shirt®. For those cats it can be made more difficult when the loops inside the collar of the shirt are fitted to a collar. Also, it’s important to choose the right size for the cat. The stretch fabric of the shirt is made for this. Special attention is always needed when a wound is irritating. The animal might try to scratch, lick and sometimes bite around the wound. We recommend keeping your pet under supervision of a responsible adult at all times while using this product.
Is it safe for my pet and the environment?
Yes, our products are toxic/lead free and safe for pets and environment.
Do you need to wash the Medical Pet Shirt® before first use?
No, you do not have to wash the Medical Pet Shirt® before first use. However, in case of open wounds, please contact your veterinarian to seek advice first.
Can the Medical Pet Shirt® be worn all day?
The Medical Pet Shirt® is made of 94% Organic Cotton and 6% Lycra. Because of these components it is breathable and comfortable and can be worn all day, when taking the below recommendations in account. When worn for a longer period of time, the Medical Pet Shirt® will need to be washed regularly. To ensure that your pet remains protected, two Medical Pet Shirts are often purchased. While one shirt can be washed, the other can be worn. When your pet needs to wear the Medical Pet Shirt® longer than a week, it’s always better to have a back-up shirt! Please consult your veterinarian when you want to use this product for medical purposes. Your veterinarian can recommend a suitable treatment. Keep your pet under supervision of a responsible adult at all times while using the Medical Pet Shirt® and check the affected area regularly. Please consult your veterinarian if your pet’s behavior is changing or when your pet has excessive licking/chewing habits. Leaving your pet unsupervised wearing a Medical Pet Shirt® is a decision only a pet owner can make after careful consideration of their unique situation, and we can’t advise on.
