Countless professionals rely on ArmOR Hand Gloves to safely and successfully care for animals, so it’s no wonder why they’ve been named the number one animal handling glove! From rescuing wildlife to treating pets in the clinic, the ArmOR Hand Glove is the best animal handling glove out there – but don’t take our word for it! Read these testimonials and see for yourself why ArmOR Hand Gloves are a must-have for anyone working with animals.
When handling wild animals in distress, it can be difficult to find a glove that is not only protective, but also flexible and long-lasting. That’s why wildlife rescuer Ben Nuckolls relies on ArmOR Hand Gloves to keep him safe. “ArmOR Hand Gloves were instrumental in over 650 wildlife rescues in 2020,” he tells Pets+ Magazine. “These gloves have helped free and rescue everything from bald eagles, opossums, to turkey vultures and beavers – they’re the best.” One case Nuckolls highlights is an owl rescue at a high school in California. “I received a report that a fledgling Great Horned Owl had fallen out of its nest,” Nuckolls recalls. “The nest was perched in the football stadium lights that were over a 100 feet tall.” Thanks to the superior protection and dexterity of ArmOR Hand Gloves, Nuckolls was able to safely rescue the owl without fear of injury.
ArmOR Hand Gloves provide proper protection – and thus peace of mind – for all professionals, not just those dealing with wild animals. Dr. Marty Becker, “America’s Veterinarian” and founder of Fear Free, loves that ArmOR Hand Gloves allow him to handle patients with ease – and without fear of injury. “There’s a tremendous flexibility in these gloves,” Dr. Becker raves, “and they’re also reinforced in the places where you’re more likely to get bitten.” These unique features provide the perfect combination of dexterity and durability, allowing for low-stress handling of patients.
Not only does Dr. Becker recognize the important role ArmOR Hand Gloves play in reducing stress during veterinary visits, but he also sees these gloves as the perfect protection against one of the most common injuries veterinarians sustain: feline bites and scratches. “You’ve got a cat that is brand new to the practice and you have no pre-visit pharmaceuticals on,” he explains. “It’s fractious, you’re scared of getting injured. We all know these kinds of injuries can be career-ending for veterinarians and technicians.” In fact, studies show almost two-thirds of injuries in veterinary clinics are caused by cats. And this glove isn’t just helpful for protecting against in-clinic cat injuries. “This is also something that you can and should recommend to clients,” Dr. Becker adds. “You’ve got those clients that have to give their cat medication everyday – do you know how terrifying that is? Great thing is you can have them order a pair of ArmOR Hand Gloves and they can feel safe and comfortable.”
Dr. Becker isn’t the only vet who sees the benefits of using ArmOR Hand Gloves when handling feline patients! Dr. Melanie Goble of Renewed Strength Veterinary Services describes a particularly stressful occasion when these animal handling gloves came to the rescue. “An assistant and I were working with a very fractious cat,” she recalls. “I gave a set of gloves to my assistant so she could restrain the cat safely. The cat grabbed her hand and thrashed around (while still holding on to her hand with its mouth). There are perfect teeth marks all over the glove, but not a scratch on her. This is the type of bite that would have resulted in a prolonged recovery time. Crisis averted!”
Like many animal trainers, Animal Planet’s Travis Brorsen can’t get enough of ArmOR Hand Gloves. “They’re flexible and durable,” he exclaims. “And one of the best things is that you can be protected, but then wash them – they’re also made with kevlar! Especially for me working with dogs, I’m telling you – I am not scared!” During his interview, Brorsen couldn’t help but pause to comment on how much he was moving his hands – that’s how impressed he was at the flexibility of ArmOR Hand Gloves.
