The Story of ArmOR Hand

I love being a veterinarian, and I am well-aware of the seriousness of animal-related injuries. While working as an emergency medicine vet, I was bitten by a patient. My joints became infected. I had severe pain, extensive surgery, and months of physical therapy in order to re-gain proper function of my hand.

Dr. Laura Catena's Injury Photos - Medical Expenses Exceeded $20,000.

Because of my injury, I developed gloves that will help to protect against animal-related injuries. The purpose of The ArmOR Hand Gloves is to allow safe and proper animal restraint technique. Proper technique can be achieved because of the superior flexibility and dexterity of the gloves. The ArmOR Hand Protector Gloves offer protection to the wearer, while facilitating restraint of the animal by allowing sufficient flexibility and dexterity.

Caring for animals is important and ArmOR Hand Glove makes it easy.

"I used the gloves for a mouth exam on a difficult cat - he was much more calm. I think part of it was that he only had me handling him. His owner was more calm seeing I had the gloves on. She wants a pair!" – Dr. Sally Foote, Veterinarian certified in low-stress animal handling

is a must have for any veterinarian.allows my cat to remain calm.makes trimming my dogs nails so easy!gives me the courage to know I am protected.


For my feline patients, I use a clean pair of ArmOR Hand Gloves. Because the scent of other cats can cause anxiety in my patients, it is very important to me that I am using a clean pair of gloves, in order to decrease their anxiety. Because the gloves are machine washable, I am able to place baby food directly on the glove. I provide hiding spaces for my patients in the exam room in order to increase their sense of safety. If needed, I can also use Feliway directly on the gloves. I am able to wear the gloves also to trim their nails as well as administer vaccines.
