Medical Purposes: The Recovery Onesie is designed to act as a comfortable and safe alternative to the medical cone for dogs with surgical sites, skin conditions, allergies, hot spots and more. Let your dog recover in comfort instead of dealing with the cumbersome cone! With our soft, premium, lightweight, and eco-friendly fabric, your dog will remain cool and comfortable during the recovery process. Other Purposes: The Recovery Onesie can also be used to contain shedding, reduce anxiety, or keep a dog clean and protected while outside just as with the Original Onesie. It is made from the same eco-friendly, lightweight fabric. Product Details: • Potty Breaks: There is a zipper that runs underneath from the chest to the tail. Just unzip for potty breaks (no need to take it all the way off). • Zipper Flap: There is a flap of fabric that covers the zipper to ensure that the zipper does not come in direct contact with the dog’s skin or recovery site. • Cleaning and Care: Machine washable and can be tumble dried on low. • Premium Material: Made from an eco-friendly, lightweight, and breathable polyester and spandex blend. Please consult with your vet before using it for medical purposes. The recovery and medical care of every dog should be evaluated by a veterinarian.

How to Put it On and Take it Off

The Shed Defender is simple to put on and take off. To put on, just put the head through the designated hole, making sure the zipper is on the belly side. Insert the front legs, the back legs, and then zip it up. The zipper should run from the chest to the tail, and the dog should be fully covered except for the head, tail and paws. It’s meant to fit snug, so just take care when zipping up! 
To take it off, start by unzipping and then take the back legs out. Next, just pull over the head and take the front legs out. We recommend taking it off outside so you can shake out the loose hair. To clean it, just throw it the washing machine or in the dryer for 10 minutes and the hair will collect in the lint filter.

Quick Tips

Fits Snug
The suit is designed to have a fairly tight and snug fit. It is a lightweight, stretchy material that is meant to be form-fitting including in the groin area. You may have to stretch the suit quite a bit to get it on, but this is normal because it is a four-way stretch fabric.
Be Careful When Zipping
Be careful when zipping and unzipping – remember it’s a stretchy fabric so you can pull down when zipping to ensure no hair gets caught in the zipper’s teeth.
We’re Here to Help
If you have questions or need help just email us with the breed, weight and pictures of your pup and we can help choose the right size for you!
Easy Exchange
If the suit is too long and baggy in the back, then the back legs could slip out of the sleeves. If that is the case, then please remove the suit and you can start an exchange here.
Alter to Your Needs
For dogs with short legs, you can simply cut (fabric won't run), hem or roll up the legs (but please note that the product cannot be returned if altered).
Provide Encouragement
It’s not uncommon for dogs to take a few times wearing it to get used to it. Positive reinforcement and encouraging them to walk around helps and soon they won’t even know they are wearing it.
