The Veterinarian’s Choice for Coverage and Support Solutions for Dogs

Posted on

110617-f-we773-005.jpgUntil recently, traditional bandages were a veterinarian’s only option for providing coverage and support for a variety of conditions. However, traditional bandages can be costly and difficult to replace. They are also prone to slipping and do not provide adequate padding or support. Once pets return home after treatment, many pet owners are unsure how to properly change bandages. This can lead to a delay in healing and a host of other problems.

DogLeggs™ are the only veterinarian-preferred alternative to traditional bandages. These revolutionary products provide superior coverage and support, are fully machine washable, and custom-sized for a tailored fit.
