A dog suit is not a smart two or three-piece affair, but a more practical everyday suit. These come in different guises, but most typically recovery suits and snowsuits. Recovery suits are mostly used to protect wounds, stop your dog from ripping off a bandage, scratching an itchy skin patch, and help with incontinence. Snowsuits are a little more self-explanatory: They keep your dog warm and happy in the coldest of conditions. Here we have put together a selection of the best of both worlds to help you choose the right one for you.

Suitical Recovery Suit for Dogs

Lightweight stretch fabric dog suit offering plenty of protection

Dogs are self-groomers and like to look after themselves, but sometimes this is to their own detriment. As an example, if a dog is wearing a bandage it will probably try to take it off. The Suitical recovery suit is made from lightweight and breathable four-way stretch fabric and offers almost complete body protection. It is designed so that you can keep the suit on for as long as needed including taking your dog for a walk. It is available in a wide variety of sizes and suitable for small, medium, and large breeds.
