Whether a pet owner or a professional, we all need protective gloves that will allow us to handle animals safely and successfully. With its unique features and bite-resistant material, choosing the ArmOR Hand Glove is a no-brainer! But, there’s more to handling animals than just purchasing the right glove – you also have to learn how to wear and use the glove properly. Only then can you make the most out of the ArmOR Hand Glove – and keep your patients (or pets!) happy and healthy.

Step 1: Choosing the Proper Fit and Style of ArmOR Hand Glove

The ArmOR Hand Glove offers superior protection, durability, and flexibility, providing peace of mind for anyone handling animals. However, while this glove will set you up for success, it’s important that you choose the right size glove; without the proper fit, you won’t have optimal dexterity. Hand-sewn to provide perfect fit and function, the ArmOR Hand Glove comes in sizes small to double extra large. This means that you’ll be able to find the perfect size so that you can handle your patients or pets properly. 

Another important choice to make when purchasing your ArmOR Hand Gloves is which style of glove you’ll need. While the full-coverage version of the ArmOR Hand Glove has protection on all fingers, the Procedure-Palpatation Protective Glove has the first three fingers exposed, allowing for fine motor control. Which style is right for you? Or perhaps you’d benefit from having both on hand? Explore your ArmOR Hand options right here!

Step 2: Familiarizing Yourself With ArmOR Hand Features 

As you start wearing your ArmOR Hand Gloves, you’ll be shocked to discover how confident you are when handling animals. That’s because these protective gloves offer the best of both worlds: superior protection and superior dexterity. Want to see it for yourself? Watch Dr. Catena, the creator of ArmOR Hand, explain the unique features of this glove! 

Step 3: Transforming the Way You Handle Animals

Not only is the ArmOR Hand glove a game-changer for professionals – whether during in-clinic exams or out in the field – but it is also an empowering tool for pet owners, as it allows them to take an active role in their pet’s health. With the ArmOR Hand Glove, stressful tasks like pilling a pet become manageable, improving the bond between owner and pet. You can even watch Dr. Catena demonstrate how to pill a pet to see just how stress-free it can be! 

The Protective Glove Perfect for Preventative Pet Care

While ArmOR Hand is a game-changer for administering medications at home, it is also an essential tool for preventative pet care. How many pet owners do you know who brush their pet’s teeth daily? How about routine ear cleanings or toenail clippings? You may be hard-pressed to name even a few! In fact, even Dr. Catena sometimes misses daily tooth brushing sessions with her dog. Preventative measures often fall to the wayside because they are difficult to perform. With the majority of cats and dogs over the age of three having some degree of dental disease, one of the most essential preventative measures a pet owner can take on is brushing their pet’s teeth once a day. With the ArmOR Hand Glove, not only can pet owners more efficiently brush their pet’s teeth, but they can also observe any redness along their pet’s gums – the first indication of gingivitis. Clearly, these gloves do much more than offer superior protection – they increase awareness of the needs of animals, improving the ability to notice any changes in their health! For procedures that require a particularly gentle touch, like clipping nails, the procedure palpatation glove helps pet owners feel calm and capable, providing all the dexterity needed to get the job done without cutting the quick of the nail, as Dr. Catena demonstrates in this helpful video

The Animal Handling Glove that Empowers Both Veterinarians and Pet Parents

For professionals and pet owners alike, the ArmOR Hand Glove is a game-changer. Whether you’re a looking for a glove that allows you to perform professional exams at the highest standard, or you’re a pet owner just looking for an easier way to keep tabs on your pet’s health, this is the glove for you!
