Everything You Need To Know About ArmOR Hand Gloves

She got severely injured while attending to a feline patient. The injury was so intense that it needed extensive surgery coupled with several months of therapy.

Dr. Laura, in her quest to prevent the same trauma from happening to fellow animal caregivers and veterinarians, developed the top-quality animal-handling ArmOR Hand Gloves.

Injuries and bites like hers are common in the veterinary industry and they can be very costly. The ArmOR Hand Gloves are a necessary investment for any animal caregiver or handler.

The ArmOR Hand gloves not only boast superior dexterity but also allow safe and proper cat restraint. If you’re a cat owner and need great gloves to handle your feline, then you should consider these gloves.

The ArmOR Hand Gloves help protect against the following:

  • Zoonotic diseases
  • Animal-related physical injuries
  • Infection of an existing wound or injury

Dental Examination And Prophylaxis

The mouth of cats contains many bacteria species, plague, and other foreign substances. Many times in veterinary practice, we need to examine an area of the mouth that may be painful, such as a tooth or when we need to examine a foreign object. The ArmOR Hand Animal Handling Gloves can be worn to provide protection during these exams.

Zoonotic Diseases

Zoonotic diseases are infectious ailments transmitted from one animal to another or from an animal to a human being. Diseases such as rabies are fatal and spread through bites from an infected animal to another animal or a human.

ArmOR Hand gloves help to protect against zoonotic diseases.

Animal-Related Physical Injuries

These gloves offer protection against various physical injuries such as scratches, bites, and kicks, among other similar injuries afflicted by animals.

Provide A Soothing Sensation For Abused Animals

Many abused animals respond better to The ArmOR Hand Animal Handling Gloves versus the touch of a human hand. 

To Prevent Infection Of An Existing Wound Or Injury

It’s time we start prioritizing the health of our animal caregivers.  At times, a vet may already have an existing injury or wound that when exposed to other substances would worsen due to an infection. To prevent this, the vet may wear a pair of gloves to help prevent further exposure of the injured area.Buy your ArmOR Hand Gloves today.
