Veterinary FAQs

  • Is the Lick Sleeve suitable for both the front and rear legs?

    Yes, the Lick Sleeve is designed to accommodate both your dog's front and rear legs and is reversible, with Left and Right icons printed on each side. For the hind legs, follow the included instructions for securing the Lick Sleeve. For the front legs, drape the long strap across their chest and heart, using the right side of the sleeve for the right limb, and the left side for the left limb. Note that dogs with deep chests and thin waists, such as Boxers and Pit bulls, may require different sizes.

  • Is the fabric breathable?

    Absolutely. Our founder, a board-certified surgeon, emphasized designing the Lick Sleeve with his patients' needs in mind. The fabric is a blend of 95% polyester and 5% spandex, selected for its softness, breathability, and flexibility. The sleeve acts as a snug cover to protect your dog’s injured leg from harmful licking and scratching, ensuring the surgical site heals in comfort.

  • Do dogs really leave it alone?

    Reactions to the Lick Sleeve vary among dogs. While some may chew on it, similar to their response to a cone, we recommend trying both the sleeve and a cone to see which works best for your pet. Feedback suggests the Lick Sleeve remains in place three times longer than alternative options, offering added protection against dirt and bacteria. We also provide a 100% money-back guarantee if it doesn’t suit your pet.

  • What is the Lick Sleeve’s failure rate?

    With over 55,000 units sold, we have documented 103 instances of the sleeve failing or being chewed.

  • When is the best time to apply the Lick Sleeve to patients?

    We recommend fitting the Lick Sleeve on patients shortly after surgery, ideally before they awaken. For TPLO surgeries, the optimal time is after post-op x-rays and before moving them to their recovery cage.

  • How effective is the Lick Sleeve?

    The Lick Sleeve offers an innovative, effective solution for enhancing your dog’s recovery. Designed to minimize stress and facilitate faster healing, it allows your pet to move freely. As a new industry standard, it's endorsed by veterinarians globally for protecting your dog’s leg during recovery from injuries or surgery.

  • Can the Lick Sleeve be washed and reused?

    Yes, the Lick Sleeve is built for durability and long-term use. It's machine-washable and can be air-dried, allowing for easy cleaning and maintenance. It can be reused for the same pet in future needs.

  • How do I choose the right size Lick Sleeve for my patient?

    Selecting the correct size is vital for the Lick Sleeve's effectiveness. A sizing chart is available on our website. Measure your patient's waist just in front of the hind legs at the narrowest point, their weight, and their height from the top of the back down to the ankle/hock.

  • Can the Lick Sleeve be used with other post-operative care methods?

    Yes, the Lick Sleeve can complement other post-operative care approaches, such as bandages or wound dressings, providing an extra layer of protection. Regularly check the surgical site for infection or complications and adjust care as needed.
