USAGE

HOW TO PUT THE SLEEVE ON?

We know how important it is to be able to quickly dress and undress your dog, which is why our Recovery Sleeve® is made of soft and stretchy high-quality material. The Recovery Sleeve® has a snug fit to prevent your dog from wiggling out. It is important however to keep monitoring your dog if the snug fit isn’t too tight. Getting the Recovery Sleeve® on and off your dog is simple, so let’s take a look!

THE USER MANUAL

HOW TO USE THE SLEEVE CORRECTLY?

This easy to put on and off Recovery Sleeve® is specially designed on the anatomy of dogs and can therefor only be used for dogs.

 

Important information:

Consult your veterinarian when you want to use the Recovery Sleeve® for medical purposes. Your veterinarian can recommend a suitable treatment. Keep monitoring your dog regularly to make sure the fit is not too tight. We recommend keeping your dog under supervision of a responsible adult at all times while using the Recovery Sleeve®. Please consult your veterinarian if your dog’s behavior is changing or when your dog has excessive licking/chewing habits.

 

Washing instructions:

For longer usage, it is possible that the print of the Recovery Sleeve® and the label could fade over time. With the washing instructions below, this process can be delayed. Washing, maintaining and handling of delivered items always remains the responsibility of the customer.

 

Instructions:

  • Always turn inside out for washing;
  • Fasten all the press studs before washing;
  • We recommend using a laundry bag;
  • Wash the Recovery Sleeve® up to a maximum of 90ºC/194ºF;
  • Never put the Recovery Sleeve® 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 Recovery Sleeve®.

Using bleach and other chemicals can cause irritations to your dog’s wound, surgical area, hotspots or more…!

TIP! To ensure that your dog remains protected, two Recovery Sleeve® are often purchased. While one Recovery Sleeve® can be washed, the other can be worn. When your dog needs to wear the Recovery Sleeve® longer than a week, it’s always better to have a back-up sleeve!

 

Specifications:

The Recovery Sleeve® for dogs is toxic/lead free and is made of:

  • 97% Organic cotton
  • 3% Invista Lycra® 4-way stretch

A CALMING EFFECT

A CALMING EFFECT

The Recovery Sleeve® offers a gentle pressure around the chest thanks to the adjustable closure and soft stretch band. This pressure offers a calming effect for most dogs.

Close

WHEN TO USE

Alternative to the collar

The Recovery Sleeve® is a professional alternative to the collar. The Recovery Sleeve® covers and protects the front leg against licking, biting and/or scratching instead of covering the dog’s entire head. By restricting the pet’s head with a collar, sounds are amplified, movement is restricted, and pets will bump into furniture. This often results in more stress. That is why we developed an animal-friendly alternative: the Recovery Sleeve®.

Close

Can help to reduce stress

The Recovery Sleeve® contains an adjustable closure and soft stretch band. The closure and band offer a comfortable pressure around the chest. This pressure has a calming effect on most dogs. This can be useful in many situations, for example after a medical procedure, in case of anxiety or stress.

Close

In case of overgrowing

Licking behavior can be caused by several factors, like hot spots, wounds, allergies or skin conditions. Due to excessive licking, the wound or affected area could become larger and even infected. If this area is situated on the dog’s torso, the Recovery Suit® could be used to cover and protect this area. If the dog licks his front leg excessively, the Recovery Sleeve® offers the right protection.

Close

Protects bandages and ointments

The Recovery Sleeve® is a front leg sleeve. Thanks to its symmetrical design, the Sleeve® can be used for your dog’s left or right front leg. This sleeve covers ointments, but could also be used to protect bandages for example. Thanks to the Recovery Sleeve® the dog cannot bite, scratch or lick the ointment/bandage, but he can still move freely.

Close

When having hot spots or skin conditions

The Recovery Sleeve® covers and protects hot spots, wounds and other skin conditions on the animal’s front leg. In this way, the problem area can heal in complete freedom. If the problem area is on the dog’s torso, the Recovery Suit® could be used.

Close

After a medical procedure

Did your pet undergo a medical procedure near the front leg? The Recovery Sleeve® protects wounds and/or sutures on the front leg. Thanks to the comfortable fit, the animal can recover in complete freedom. Less stress for a faster recovery!

Press studs for good fit

It is almost impossible for the dog to open the Recovery Sleeve® itself because the closure is around the chest. However, it is quick, safe and easy for the owner or veterinarian to put on and take off. We advise to use at least two rows of press studs to keep the sleeve perfectly in place.

There’s also a single teal colored snap, so you can quickly see that this is an original Suitical product!

Calming effect on most dogs

The Recovery Sleeve® offers a gentle pressure around the chest thanks to the adjustable closure and soft stretch band. This pressure offers a calming effect for most dogs.

 

Close

Soft stretch band

A soft, elastic and protective stretch band around the chest and around front leg ensures that the Recovery Sleeve® does not rub and cut into the legs and chest of the dog. Dogs can move and heal in complete freedom. However, it is important to make sure that your dog is fitted with the right size, and to make sure that the sleeve is not too tight.

Close

Interchangeable left/right leg

The Recovery Sleeve® is symmetrical in design making it possible to be used for your dog’s left- or right front leg. One leg goes into the sleeve and the other leg goes through the opening on the other side.

Close

Original Suitical product

The Suitical logo is always on the right side of the Recovery Sleeve® near the shoulder area.

The washing label has an integrated Suitical hologram. Without the logo and the hologram, it is not an original, official product of Suitical International.

There’s also a single teal colored snap, so you can quickly see that this is an original Suitical product!
