Pets add a lot of joy to life, but grooming them sure does not. Recently, I was working on my Chihuahua’s nails and accidentally snagged the dremel in his long neck fur, resulting in a mishap that was very bad for both of us! Ever since, he has been understandably scared whenever it’s time for a weekly nail trim. I don’t want Charlie to be fearful and certainly don’t want to rip his hair out again in the future, so I started looking for a device that would comfortably keep him in place during grooming. The Pet Pita solved our problem instantly.
Designed specifically to handle, medicate, groom, and carry cats and dogs, The Pet Pita is a convenient and affordable option. It can work in a variety of positions. What works best for us was placing Charlie’s legs into the front holes only which allowed him to remain seated on my lap during grooming.
What I loved: cute color combo of navy and orange, very thick cotton material that will stand up to the washing machine, really nice stitching that will not rip when you lift a pet and handle holes at the top are very helpful. The small size is pretty roomy for little dogs (Charlie is approximately 5 lbs).
After Charlie had his turn, Tommy was next up. My 4 month old kitten reluctantly agreed to participate and I did get a bit scratched in the process. Like most cats, he is very fussy when it comes to restraining. I think this could be really helpful for medicating an angry cat, provided there was a second person to assist. I definitely would’ve used it after Tommy’s surgery, to prevent him from licking the incision, if we’d had it back then.
The Pet Pita is available in two sizes and two colors that can accommodate large and small animals. To purchase one for your fur baby or to find more info, check out their website.
