We’re here to help you find the best size Recovery Suit® for your dog! To find the right size, measure the distance from the neck (collar) to the base of the tail, as explained in the instruction video, and fill in the required measurements in the size calculator below.


If your dog is somewhere between two sizes, we recommend choosing the smaller size. Please be aware that the amount of fur, weight, and body proportions (long back and short legs for example or a very broad chest compared to the rest of the body) of your pet might affect the size needed.

We know how important it is to be able to quickly dress and undress your dog, which is why our Recovery Suit® is made of soft and stretchy high-quality material. The Recovery Suit® 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 Suit® on and off your dog is simple, so let’s take a look!


Step 1: Roll up the Recovery Suit® with the middle head opening in your hand. Make sure that the light blue inner layer is facing down. Insert your dog’s head through the opening.


Step 2: Followed by inserting one leg into the provided smaller leg opening and the other leg into the other remaining smaller opening.


Step 3: Now pull the Recovery Suit® over your dog’s body all the way to the back.


Step 4: The lower belly flaps must be pulled between the hind legs towards the upper part near the base of the tail.


Step 5: Secure the two flaps with the snaps/poppers. We advise to close all snaps/poppers to keep the suit perfectly in place. 


Step 6: Take a good look around the legs, neck and tail to see if there is enough room to move and breathe!

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



Important information:

Consult your veterinarian when you want to use the Recovery Suit® 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 Suit®. 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 Suit® 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.



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


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


TIP! Little (peeing) accidents can happen while wearing the Recovery Suit®. To ensure that your dog remains protected, two Recovery Suits are often purchased. While one Recovery Suit® can be washed, the other can be worn. When your dog needs to wear the Recovery Suit® longer than a week, it’s always better to have a back-up!




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


suit specs



First of all, we want to explain why the Recovery Suit® is fully closed. In many cases, the surgical area for male dogs is very close to the urination area, for instance with neuter procedures. To give all kind of dogs the protection they need, regardless of gender or type of surgery, we designed the Recovery Suit® with a closed rear end. In order to be able to walk your dog or to check the wound, you can use the super easy hold-up system!


Check out the video below on how to use this hold-up system.





Alternative to a pet cone

The Recovery Suit® is a professional alternative to the collar. The Recovery Suit® covers and protects the problem area against licking, biting and/or scratching instead of covering the pet’s entire head. By restricting the pet’s head with a pet cone, 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 Suit®.


When having hot spots or skin conditions

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


After a medical procedure

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


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.


Protects when in heat or incontinence

The Recovery Suit® reduces the risk of blood or urine stains in your house. In the event of blood or fluid loss, a sanitary towel can be applied on the inside of the suit or between the double layer. In contrast to standard in season shorts it is very difficult for your pet to wriggle out of the Suit. Making this a safe and hygienic alternative for in season shorts!


Giving nursing dogs a break

The Recovery Suit® provides nursing dogs some time off by covering the entire torso, including the nursing dog’s mammary glands. At set times, the Recovery Suit® can be opened so the puppies can be fed.


Minimizes shedding

Dogs and cats lose a lot of hair throughout the seasons, especially on the torso since this area contains the largest amount of hair. The Recovery Suit® covers the entire torso, catching hairs in the shirt. Make sure to groom your pet regularly and to remove hair from the Recovery Suit® daily.

Loops for a dog collar

There are loops around the neck on the inside of the Suit. The collar of your dog can be pulled through these loops and attached. It makes it even more difficult for your dog to squeeze out of the Recovery Suit®.



Soft stretch bands

A soft, elastic and protective stretch band around the front and hind legs and around the tail ensures that the Recovery Suit® does not rub and cut into the legs and tail 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 shirt is not too tight.

For animals where the surgical area and/or dermatological problem runs between the shoulder blades towards the neck, it is desirable for this area to be protected as well. Therefore, the Recovery Suit® is equipped with a longer, soft, elastic neck protective collar.


Easy hold-up system for walks

In many cases, the surgical area for the male is very close to the urination area. The suit is completely closed (regardless of gender) to ensure that the entire torso of every physique is protected. In order to be able to walk your dog or check the wound, we have developed a hold-up system. The suit can be rolled up inside and secured to the chest with press studs. For the best protection, the suit must always be closed again after a check or a walk outside. Take a look at the button – TIME FOR A WALK – for more information and a video tutorial.


Blue inner layer & pocket

The interior of the Recovery Suit® is partially light blue so fluid loss can be checked by the veterinarian or owner. In the event of fluid loss, a sanitary towel can be applied on the inside of the suit or between the double layer. If necessary, an ice pack can also be inserted between the double layer.


Press studs / snaps for good fit

It is very difficult for the dog to open the Recovery Suit® because the closure is on the back. However, it is quick, safe and easy for the owner or veterinarian to put on and off the shirt. We advise to close all press studs/snaps to keep the shirt perfectly in place.

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



Original Suitical product

The Suitical logo is always on the left side of the Recovery Suit® 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!
