The protective apparel 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 collar, sounds are amplified, movement is restricted, and they will bump into furniture. This often results in more stress.

Protects wounds, sutures and bandages to prevent your pet from scratching or licking. In this way, your pet can heal in complete freedom.

The Head Cover® is fully closed by way of adjustable fastening straps with Velcro and a row of snaps. The snaps ensure that the Head Cover® fits as snugly as possible. Moreover, it reduces the risk of bleeding in the ear caused by the dog shaking its head.

There are three adjustable fastenings for a perfect fit: the adjustable strap under the chin, the adjustable strap around the neck and the Velcro® strap on the back of the neck. To secure the Head Cover properly, it is important to use at least two rows of snaps with the two fastening straps. If needed, you can adjust the neck length for a better fit on the head by adjusting the Velcro® strap on the back of the neck. Please note: do not secure the Head Cover too tightly as this can result in breathing and blood circulation problems.

The Head Cover® comes with two specially designed pockets on the inside near the ears. These bags hold the Head Cover Pads (available separately) for extra soft protection. A dog's ears can also be inserted into these bags to prevent wound discharge and ointments from sticking to the dog's fur. The Head Cover Pads can be placed in either one or both bags to protect one or both ears, respectively.

Should it be necessary to cool one or both ears (after seeking advice from your vet), these bags can also be used to hold cooling pads.

The Head Cover® comes with an elastic cord to ensure that the front of the Head Cover® closes around the dog's head as much as possible. In this way, wounds, bandages and ear and/or head skin are protected should the dog have skin/ear problems, such as an othematoma (bleeding ear).

The interior of the MPS-Head Cover® is light blue so fluid or blood loss can be checked by the veterinarian or the pet owner. In the event of fluid loss, a sanitary towel can be applied on the inside of the Head Cover® or between the double layer. If necessary, the veterinarian can also insert an ice pack between the double layer.

These internal flexible plastic ribs prevent sagging as much as possible and support the Head Cover® in protecting wounds and/or bandages. Remove these ribs from the Head Cover® when washing.

A Velcro strip can be found at the back of the Head Cover® for shortening the skull length for a tighter fit, if necessary.

Please note: do not secure the Head Cover® too tightly as this can result in breathing problems and blood circulation problems;

The Head Cover® is made of high-quality cotton, a four-way stretch Invista Lycra® and denim blue material on the outside.
