Some people here have put a tee-shirt on then gathered up the loose material around the chest on the dog’s back then secured with a rubber band, hair tie or even just put a knot in the shirt. 

This picture of Barkley shows a shirt with a knot.

Hi Taylor!  So glad to hear Jetta continues to do well and her new feeder is super cool!  One of the very first posts I read on Tripawds was about someone using adult underwear as a forelimb incision covering, with the pup’s head going through one of the leg openings, the remaining front let through the other, and the elastic around the midsection.  I remember giggling when reading that post and imaging Griffin in that getup!  I used human neck gaiters (stretchy tube of fabric) and cut a hole for Griffin’s other leg, making essentially a snug body sleeve.  I hope you figure it out and post photos of Jetta in whatever you decide to use! sp_hearticon2 Stacy
