Will this work for a pressure sore on elbow, is it padded?
Answer by ChewyNov 02, 2022
The Recovery Sleeve can be used protecting a pressure sore but is not padded. If extra padding is needed you could use a pantyliner on the inside of the sleeve.

Should you or could you use ointment, gause and wrap bandage , over a sore, underneath the leg sleeve first? I'm desperate, I have tried everything out there, to prevent my dog's obsessive licking her sores on front lower leg.

Will this sleeve work for a rear leg as well?
Answer by ChewyMar 19, 2021
The recovery sleeve is designed for the front legs and not for the hind legs.

My dog's chest circumference is 29 - 31 inches which would indicate she would need the large size. however, the leg length for the large size is 13.8 inches and this is too long for my dog. her leg length seems to be closer to 10 inches. can the leg length be modified (cut)? Please advise.
Answer by ChewyFeb 20, 2018
It is not recommended to cut the sleeve because it may fray. The sleeve may be folded or scrunched if needed.

Just what we needed.

Penny had an infected elbow, we tried gauze with tape, a knee sock, a mesh sleeve, and a long sleeved T-shirt; none were effective. The Suitical Recovery Sleeve fits perfectly and is really easy to put on her. As other reviewers have mentioned, it does stretch, but not so much she can take it off. I wish I had gotten it earlier.

Great product

My 100 lb black lab has calluses on her elbows. I have hard wood floors and sometimes they crack open and bleed. I tried ointment and wrapping then but the wrap always slides down her leg. This product works great and it's washable.

Wish I'd found this sooner

My dog licks. Can't wrap since it needs air. Too low for the inflatable collar to be effective and he's going blind so the cones freak him out. This device is amazing! Got a medium (he's a 28lb terrier mix). Is adjustable around the body so fits perfectly there. A little long for his legs, but a little fold up actually provides a little reinforcement and it stays up. I can see where a chewer could get thru the fabric but works perfectly for us!

I purchased this for my lab who has had an ongoing hotspot above his right paw. I hate making him wear a cone so I thought this would be the perfect alternative. It lasted a day. Put it on him before bed no problems, but by the time I got home from work the next evening he had chewed half of the sleeve off. $35 wasted. Great concept but not durable.

Fabric not durable.

I used this for my cat who has a tumor just above his paw that has to be bandaged. I tried several different cones to keep him from tearing the bandage off but they were not useful. I finally ordered this sleeve and the cat was happier and not able to get it off, however after several days he managed to tear a hole in it and get to his bandage. So I guess I will be ordering more of these until I can find something else. I wish the fabric was more durable.

Sanity saver!

My dog had a wound on her leg and when the stitches were removed she licked it nonstop and it was getting inflamed. Vet sent her home with a huge cone collar and she was supposed to keep that on for as long as it took. That was not happening. I ordered the first one and it came in two days and really seemed comfortable on her. It kept her from licking the wound and enabled me to stop monitoring her constantly. The bad part is that it got stretched completely out of shape after about ten days. My dog goes outside a lot and used it fairly hard. I ordered a second one that came yesterday and it is doing a good job. I’m hoping the wound heals before I have to get a third. It is expensive to have to do that but wouldn’t come close to the vet bill for a return visit for an infected wound.

Good option

My schnauzer had a nodule that had to be drained on his lower leg and he is a compulsive licker and the collar wouldn't stop him from reaching it. We ended up trying this to cover it but let the spot breathe. It worked on the higher spot but didn't come down low enough on top of paw to stop him, so had to put a baby sock over it too. Its excellent otherwise. I wish it had a sock like bottom that covered his paw that you could use or foldup. Anyway its still an excellent alternative and has lots of adjustments for his body. soft fabric, suitical has lots of products that work! whenever we can avoid the cone we are happy!

Nice idea, but doesn't work.

It fits and at first glance appears as though it might work. My dog simply lifted the sleeve up and continued to aggravate the sore. It was a waste of money and I do not recommend.

Recovery Sleeve

I ordered one for my German Shepherd dog because he had a dewclaw removed that was damaged. The sleeve did not fit as pictured, it was awkward to say the least and slides to the back making it uncomfortable for my dog. The sleeve itself is a perfect fit but the harness design to keep it on properly was done very poorly. I gave it 3 stars because the concept is good, but the actual product is not.

Who would have thought an XXL would be too big? That size would fit a great dane, mastiff, St. Bernard ... but we only needed a large for our 110lb English Cream Golden. Great find for my Golden who had a lumpectomy on his right leg. Keeps it covered and clean. Keeps him from being able to scratch it open, but he gets it wet because he licks it. Good thing to have two, so we have one to switch out when we wash it.
