Area of Coverage: Torso

DogLeggs' Surgi-Sox Torso provides coverage, protection and compression of the torso. Compression can help prevent seroma formation following surgery and can also benefit animals with certain behavioral issues. Bandaging the torso without restriction of movement can be challenging especially when compression is needed. Achieving the appropriate tension without causing discomfort, irritation and other complications is difficult. Use of the Surgi-Sox Torso can often replace traditional bandaging methods and the dreaded Elizabethan collar. Surgi-Sox products are quick and easy to apply, they just slip right on and provide reliable coverage, protection and compression. Improved patient comfort reduces licking, chewing and scratching at wounds. The simplicity of the garments results in greater compliance.

In regards to behavioral issues, compression has been successfully used to calm animals and humans for years as demonstrated in treatment for fear and excitability associated with thunder in companion animals and autism in people. People often describe a feeling of calm, comfort and security when wearing compressive clothing. This calming effect can be beneficial for the recovering patient and for anxious, excitable or fearful animals in both the clinic and home setting.

The level of compression can be adjusted based on the size selected. Our sizing chart is based on a mild to moderate compression and can be used as a guideline if more or less compression is desired.

The DogLeggs' Surgi-Sox Torso is available as a slip-on or step-in application. Customizing the Surgi-Sox Torso to include padding for deep wounds or ulcers on the torso is also available.
