This is Beans recovering from surgery. He needed something to protect the surgery site (protect it from his tongue) so his pet parent got him a Medi-shirt. The Pet Medi-shirt is what we recommend to keep wounds and incisions clean and protected. It is so much more comfortable for a dog or cat to wear than the plastic cone collars we used to use. The Medi-shirt is also quite stylish and costs the same as those awful cone shaped collars.
