Sorry if it's not the right place to post this.
I'm looking for a waterproof shirt to put on Hank to protect his sutures. He likes to lay in the snow. Does anything like that exist or I have to invent one?

How about one of those workout shirts that wickaway the water like at Walmart or Target or something if you have them? They are supposed to keep the water away from the skin?

I think that the Climate Changer fleece coat is a good solution. We've used it on Wyatt in the snow and it wicks away water. It's not "waterproof" but it does a good job of keeping him dry.
Dogs do like laying on cool surfaces, I can see why he does it.
