  • Tip for keeping a coat on your dog…….they usually have Velcro or buttons or elastic etc for that. Lots to choose from in varying price ranges

  • Vets and animal supply stores have excellent jackets for dogs. The jacket I have you slip their front legs thru holes and it buttons up underneath. Never falls off

  • Its good to know the reject shop have decent ones that you can wash and they last, just great!

  • My experience is that Mandie would just not leave it on and if I let her be she would just sit down and not move until I took it off. Only letting you know this before you spend too much money on a jacket that might not be appreciated. Good luck.

  • Hi MOM4107, thanks for your good answer and advice. I will head off to the chemist and have a look for this product. I will try anything safe and proven to relieve her pain and soreness. :)

  • Hi mum 93821. I used to work in canine rehabilitation. If you have a chemist warehouse near you, pop in and get some rapigel. It’s a menthol/ camphor and when rubbed on , it warms the joints. It’s been great for my dog with hip dysplasia

  • Thanks for the answers, will look at all of these places. Our poor old pooch has terrible joint pain and even with injections she is still a little sore! I need to make her happy and comfortable at all times! I would not have thought of Horseland MOM 4107! Thank you! :)

  • Horseland sell weetherbeater brand, same as their horse rugs. they are fantastic quality and reasonably priced too

  • Does anyone know the price range of the coats and jackets?

  • I had to get some heavy duty ones from petbarn – as much as my dogs love being warm, they also like to destroy everything including countless jqckets. I think the brand they have now is weatherbeeter

  • the reject shop have decent ones that you can wash and they last
