Yesterday our cat, Ming, had to go to the vet for treatment of an infected abscess on her back. The vet wanted her to wear a cone but it just wouldn't stay on, even adjusted to the smallest size. I had another appointment to get to and both Ming and our dogs were trying to lick the wound so I quickly made a bodysuit for Ming out of an old t-shirt. It covers the wound to keep it clean and dry but allows Ming maximum movement and the ability to use the bathroom without me having to remove the suit. Click below for a free step-by-step tutorial to make a suit for any pet, as well as no-sew options.
The vet instructed me to wash out the wound every day before applying antibiotic ointment. I'm using Young Living Puriclean diluted with a little water to clean it. Puriclean is part of the Animal Scents collection of products specially-formulated safe and effective for all pets. Use Puriclean as the first step in the 3-part treatment: Clean with Puriclean, then apply Infect-Away and Mendwell. Order Puriclean and the other Animal Scents products below.
UPDATE: Ming was unfortunately able to take off her suit and she hid it somewhere we can't find it so now there is a new section of the tutorial on how to make a no-sew pet sweater, since I had to make a new one!
