How durable is the fabric of WinPet WPC ? Does WinPet WPC work for Large Dogs?
The WinPet WPC fabric is a result of a long R&D process after many trials. The design of the product with fabric technology is under legal protection with National and International Patent Laws. While its fabric technology is being developed, strength and comfort are kept in balance. Thanks to the elastane feature of the product, WinPet WPC fabric does not tear even if it is bitten. However, if it is insistently rubbed on a sharp surface (lattices, walls, etc.) or crushed by biting, it will become deformed and may tear. Or if large dogs insist on scratching the same region with their paws, they may deform and tear the fabric. However, even in the largest size dogs, any problem is not generally observed in short-term recovery period (8-10 days). Additionally, if it is thought that it is impossible to prevent 30 kg and over patients from reaching the wound in the postoperative period, WinPet WPC has been a solution to this problem substantially.
Although it’s been three days since I started using WinPet WPC, my cat is still walking by bending his legs. Is this normal?
Depending on the operation area, especially in cats; bending the legs (Crocodile Walk) during the use of the WinPet WPC is accepted as normal for the operations performed under the abdomen and lateral walk (crab walk) is accepted as normal for the operations performed from the lateral abdominal cavity.
What should I do for minimizing the risk of infection while using WinPet WPC?
In postoperative period, there are different treatment protocols used by the veterinarians. However, our clinical experience in the patients using WinPet WPC is in the direction that infection does not usually develop and recovery period is quite faster in the patients using suitable antibiotics with regular dressings as several times a day (preferably, with Rifamycin) without requiring dressing sutures in the recovery period.

My dog underwent an operation, WinPet WPC was used but he cannot urinate comfortably and it smells. What is the reason?
In patients using WinPet WPC, the product should be shaped according to the gender and body structure of the patient after the application. In male dogs, a Penis Space must be opened in accordance with the patient, and in the case of female patients, the Vulva Cavity should be definitely checked. The use of the WinPet WPC by the patients should be followed in their natural environment for at least 6 hours. If the patient is not able to urinate and defecate comfortably, the product should be reshaped according to the patient. Otherwise, the urine leaking between the skin and the WinPet WPC will cause infection in the operation area as well as irritation and odor in the skin.
The neck cord of WinPet WPC should be attached to the neck of the patient in cats and dogs like a tight leash. Otherwise, especially the cats can remove the product like taking out a catsuit from their bodies by placing the hind legs to the front part of the product. In dogs, the cord should be fixed to the leash if possible. Otherwise, it is possible that the product will accumulate in the patient’s body.
WinPet WPC can also be used safely and successfully in skin diseases.
In patients who use WinPet WPC after cesarean operations, the product should tightly wrap the body. In addition, nipple spaces should be opened under the abdomen by taking the small holes on both sides of the middle line as a guide.
The risk of hernia will emerge in case the patient is very active in the recovery process especially after the operations during which it is compulsory to open a large incision line. This risk is partly eliminated due to the fact that WinPet WPC will support the abdomen and the operation area with an extra power. Additionally, in very active patients, WinPet WPC wrapping the patient’s body tighter than normal will lead the patient’s movements to become partially slow and calm.
R&D process of WinPet WPC has still been continuing. There are prototypes of WinPet WPC to cover whole body including paws from the nasal tip in large-nosed dogs and ear level in other pets to tail tip. It is not possible to use WinPet WPC only for injuries occurring around the genital areas and the anus. Today, only our commercialized product is WinPet WCP Body Apparatus. In the R&D process, the design of the other parts of the collection has been developed for more practical use by the end user and they will be commercialized soon.
After the operation, your patient absolutely have pain. However it cannot be caused by WinPet WPC. Sometimes, the adaptation period in cats may extend to 48 hours. In order to shorten this period, the patient should wake up with WinPet WPC after the operation and the product should never be removed from the patient for any reason. It should be remembered that WinPet WPC is a medical product. It should be applied by a veterinarian and it should not be removed without the permission of the veterinarian.
There is no sweat gland on the skin of dogs and cats. They only sweat from under their paws. (https://winpet.eu/en/do-cats-dogs-sweat/) Dogs also regulate their body temperature via respiration. If there is a different wetness on WinPet WPC other than normal, probably the dressings are not performed regularly or the wound may get infected. Or WinPet WPC used is not suitable for the patient and the urine of the patient leaks inside the product. Please contact your veterinarian.
WinPet WCP is produced from antiallergic fabric. However, as an exception, allergic reactions may develop due to the use of the wrong size of the product and friction in White Hairy and Small Breed dogs. In this case, the veterinarian should be contacted immediately and if necessary, the product should be abandoned.
