PROFESSIONAL ANIMAL CAREGIVERSLOVE ARMOR HAND®
"I used the ArmOR Hand Gloves on a typically difficult cat to examine his mouth. He was much more calm because there were less hands on him. I did not have to use a veterinary technician to help restrain. His owner was also much more relaxed seeing I had the gloves on. ArmOR Hand Gloves provide the needed flexibility for low-stress handling.”

“The ArmOR Hand Gloves are excellent. We have used the gloves with a variety of species in different situations and we love the product.”
"The ArmOR Hand Glove is comfortable, form-fitting, and durable. It allows animal professionals the mobility and confidence needed to handle animals with proper restraint technique. I love that there are 2 styles of gloves available. Each style serves an important function in our veterinary hospital. These gloves have changed the way we can provide care.”

"Love The ArmOR Hand Gloves. My clinic has 2 pairs. I love the fit so I am able to better manage patients. I also love the Palpation-Procedure style with the fingertips exposed so that I can palpate fearful cats. I also love they are machine washable!"

ArmOR Hand®: A Necessary Investment for Veterinary Professionals
The veterinary community deeply cares about our patients, our clients and each other. Our work is meaningful and challenging. We must make all aspects of our health and well-being the priority and invest in protection.
Early in my veterinary career, I suffered an injury that was potentially life-ending. Because of my injury, I designed and developed The ArmOR Hand Animal Handling Gloves to protect other animal caregivers from the trauma, pain and expense that I endured. Read my injury story.
In practice, injury occurs daily.
- We may be scratched up our forearm as we trim nails on an excited young Labrador puppy.
- Or, we may be performing a physical exam on a patient that isn’t showing signs of pain and our patient may be uncomfortable and react.
- Our anxiety has a direct and profound effect on the anxiety of our patients.
- When we are protected, our anxiety decreases; the comfort of our patient increases.
Pet parents express concern for how their pet may react at the vet. Pet owners value seeing The ArmOR Hand Protector Gloves used on their pets. PDF’s educating clients about ArmOR Hand can be found here. ArmOR Hand is made specifically for animal care and comfort. Clients also appreciate seeing the staff protected. On particularly fearful or fractious cats, I am able to use the “less is more” approach while being protected.
The ArmOR Hand Protective Gloves are a Fear Free Certified Product and can be used in conjunction with low-stress handling. The gloves are a necessary tool in our tool box, and are an essential investment. These veterinary gloves not only increase practice safety, but increase efficiency as well.
The ArmOR Hand Gloves support the One Health Initiative by decreasing infectious disease transmission. One of the many unique benefits of ArmOR Hand is the gloves are non leather and are machine washable. It is vital to use a glove that is machine washable and wipeable between patients. The ArmOR Hand vegan animal handling gloves accomplishes this goal.
Two styles of ArmOR Hand Gloves are available. The full finger coverage as well as the first 3 fingertips exposed glove. The variety of sizes ensures a proper fit and function of the glove. Glove sizing chart.
By using The ArmOR Hand Protective Gloves, you are not only improving patient care, but also prioritizing your own health and self-care, one pair at a time.
