I might go back and get one of the ones I saw at PetsMart. They curve forward on the stomach, though, and the vet clinic there said they wouldn't work for covering the incision. I ended up getting one from Hobby Lobby in a small youth. Still need to tie the back, but it doesn't hang down low enough to trip her.

I did see a couple really cute ones at PetsMart, though. Plus they had Bronco ones.

Thanks for the help.

Maybe small sized adult shirts, maybe sleeveless undershirts? They might be more form fitting for your pup.

I got one for $2.99. I had to get them for my girl because she has allergies.

Thanks. I might be able to afford PetsMart if they have them for about $2, but I doubt if they'd go that low. I will try to measure her (she's not letting me do much of anything right now).

Just an FYI they are having a really good sale at PetSmart on the pet T's to get rid of them. However, the thrift shop is where I would go next, just measure your dog and bring the tape measure with you to measure the T.

I can't afford the one specifically for dogs. Maybe could find something smaller at the thrift store. She is a medium sized dog (Australian Cattle Dog), so I don't know what size child's tee shirt.

I have always gotten a dog t-shirt cuz they actually are made for the dogs, then you don't have that problem. Otherwise I would use a child's t-shirt.

If you want to use your t-shirt then I suggest cutting off the sleeves, cutting and stitching the part of the shirt that goes down the back so it fits her better. And cutting off length if necessary,

Does anyone know how to get a tee shirt to stay on a dog to protect incisions? I have tied the sleeves up by running a ribbon through the sleeves and up over her shoulders. I tied the back up with a ribbon so it will stay at the back. She still ends up stepping on it, pulling it half off and tripping herself. I think the tee shirt I have on her is a medium, but it is the smallest I have. Without it she scratches. She also has a recovery collar on (soft, inflatable collar) to prevent licking. Gets the staples out next week.
