October 06, 2022: A premium price for poorly made gloves is unacceptable. Since Bitebuster has poor quality control Chewy needs to inspect these gloves before shipping them. Sent a message to Bitebuster about the problems with these gloves after they were delivered by Chewy, & Bitebuster hasn't replied. So I'm returning the gloves for a refund & will buy gloves from a different company that are better made. Where the tear is, I put the point of a thumb tack through the hole & the tack easily penetrated the inside rubber liner & poked my pinky finger inside. If the outer shell can tear so easily & the inner shell penetrate with a thumbtack with little effort, how much will these gloves really protect a hand against the small sharp teeth of cats & small dogs. Making matters worse, the knit liner that surrounds the hand & fingers, that Bitebuster says is Kevlar, is such a loose knit weave there is no way it will help stop the small pointy teeth of a cat or dog. For teeth like that you're solely relying on the thin rubber material being good enough to hopefully stop the bite. If the knit really is Kevlar, perhaps it might help stop the bite for a large dog with teeth that aren't so sharp & pointy.
My eight year old Husky ,Xena, was snapping at us every time we tried to groom her ,give her meds or even take off her collar. Believe me I been bitten a few times and it isn't a joy ride. Now we can take care of her properly.
These Bitebusters work! I really wish they made extra-small so I have more control within them without them falling right off. I bought the small, but they’re still huge. But what I’m grateful for is that they are not made of animals’ skin/leather. and my Mom’s Eclectus can bite hard without it hurting, and she is happy to step up on them so I can hold her more comfortably to take her for walks. I’m becoming more involved in my Mom’s and her animals lives now and I want to spend time with this parrot so she can trust me and therefore enjoy more out-of-the-cage and outdoor time. These work great. Again, please fit for much smaller hands though, as I have no real use of my hands and fingers when they’re in there.
We originally got these because we have two dear old pets, one dog, one cat, who have started to bite us when we trim their claws or give them medicine. These gloves are truly puncture resistant, and enable us to continue to care for our pets without fear of being bitten. We're so impressed by them that we bought a pair for our vet, who also loves them!!
