Case study and personal user experience for a licking wound on a cat

According to veterinarians, licking wounds are a common behaviour among cats, but it can lead to severe complications such as infections, irritations, and even self-mutilation. Licking wounds if left untreated often become chronic as cats develop a licking cycle which repeats.  To prevent this behaviour, treatments such as the use of ointments, creams or the dreaded cone of shame are often prescribed, which can be traumatic for the cat and difficult for pet owners to manage. If the wound has become infected it may be treated with antibiotics or in more extreme cases surgery. Unfortunately none of those treatments stop the licking cycle which often reoccurs triggering another round of expensive treatment and more trauma for your pet.

TailMe, a leading provider of pet recovery products, recognized the trauma related to the use of the cone and it’s shortfalls in providing suitable care for medical recovery. TailMe is the South African Importer of the The Suitical Medical Recovery range for Dogs and Cats. This innovative suit is designed to provide a comfortable and non-traumatic solution for pets recovering from wounds, injuries or surgeries. It comes in various sizes and is made of soft, breathable fabric, which helps to reduce stress and anxiety in pets while they recover.

Janet, a pet lover (2 dogs and 12 cats) and active member of a feral cat rescue organization in Durban, South Africa. After doing some research online, Janet came across the Suitical Recovery suit for cats and purchased it right away. She purchased the recovery suit for one of her tiny kitties (Sweetpea) who had a licking wound on her lower back that wasn’t healing. After trying out the Suitical Recovery Suit on her cat, she was amazed and exceptionally pleased with the results.

“I had tried everything from creams and ointments. I even tried using a cone on my cat to stop Sweetpea from licking her wound, but she hated it just as much as I did. It was traumatic for her, and wasn’t helping the wound heal. I knew there had to be a better solution out there,” she explained.

“I was immediately impressed by the suit’s design and how it was able to quickly stop my cat from licking the wound. But more importantly, it was instantly clear that the Suitical Suit was a much more comfortable and a fear-free experience for my cat compared to the cone,” Janet said. “She was able to move around more freely and didn’t seem to be bothered by it at all,”.

“Sweetpea started healing after just three days, and I was so impressed that I handed back the cone to the vet.”, “Actually I was so impressed that I asked my vet to stock the suits instead,” Janet added.

As a pet lover, Janet believes that every pet deserves a comfortable and non-traumatic recovery. “The Suitical Recovery suit for cats is a brilliant alternative to the traditional cone, and I’ve already recommended it to all my friends and my vet,” she said.

“TailMe’s commitment to pet recovery is evident in their range of products that cater to pets of all shapes and sizes. Their products are designed with the pet’s comfort and recovery in mind and have received rave reviews from pet owners worldwide.” Janet Added
