The Story and the Science

2009: The idea of Surgi~Snuggly ™, The Wonder Suit was born.

2009 through 2011: Research and Development began. After 2 years of Research & Development, the patterns were finalized, the textile was chosen, WaGS™ the Surgi~Snuggly ™ Signature Sizing System was developed, and Surgi~Snuggly ™ The Wonder Suit was introduced to the veterinary world.

  • With bio-security and versatility in mind, the back pocket was developed. This part of the suit can be unfastened, folded or rolled, and re-fastened for a part of the suit to be sectioned off, allowing the pet to relieve itself sanitarily. It also allows easy examination and treatment by a veterinarian without removing the entire suit.

  • To allow for a tailored fit and special modifications such as holes to accommodate medical drain tubes, a self-healing, non-fraying material was selected.

  • Stitched leg holes, which cut into the pet’s fleshy underarm and other sensitive parts, were avoided by using material that didn’t require stitching yet remained durable.
