Veterinarian, ArmOR Hand Protective Glove Inventor

I love being a veterinarian, and am well-aware of the seriousness of animal-related injuries. When I was bitten by a patient, my joints became infected. I had severe pain, extensive surgery, and months of physical therapy in order to regain proper function of my hand. Because of my injury, I developed The ArmOR Hand Protective Gloves. These gloves help to protect against animal-related injuries, by allowing safe and proper animal handling. The gloves provide personal protection of the hand and forearm, decreasing the chance of bites and scratches, as well as the transmission of disease, through safe restraint techniques.

ArmOR Hand gloves are made of ALL synthetic materials. Stretch Cordura – one of the materials of the gloves is the STRONGEST of the stretch materials – it is used in the lining of tires. Neoprene over the knuckle – another material allows for increased hand articulation. Double Knit Kevlar – Kevlar is another VERY strong material used in the gloves. Inside of the cuff – Non-Slip material added for increased protection.

“We ordered some of your excellent animal handling gloves a while ago and we would like to order more. We have used the gloves with a variety of species in different situations and we are very pleased with the product.” 

Dr. Melanie Goble

Veterinarian, Renewed Strength Veterinary Services

"This past week, an assistant and I were working with a very fractious cat. 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! Thank you!"

Dr. Sally Foote, DVM, CFBC-IAABC

Veterinarian & Dog and Cat Behaviorist

"I used the gloves for a typically difficult cat for a mouth exam alone - he was SO MUCH MORE CALM! I think part of it was that he only had me handling him. His owner was also much more relaxed seeing I had the gloves on. She wants a pair!"

Dr. Orla Molloy

Maggi Berry

"I used my ArmOR Hand Gloves to handle an injured adult raccoon. They are fantastic! Anyone handling wildlife should certainly have at least one pair! It's the best purchase I have made! The fit, the dexterity, it 's like none other. Thank You ArmOR Hand."

"As a veterinary technician of almost 40 years, I have worked with everything from hummingbirds to elephants. I have tried many different types of safety gloves. The only gloves I recommend are the ArmOR Hand Gloves! Each pair is hand sewn and very sturdy. First, know that they are machine washable which is critical for infectious disease control and prevention of contamination between patients. They hold up beautifully wash after wash. Second, they are the most flexible safety glove I have ever used. They allow for a very high level of dexterity which means that I can use a syringe while wearing them as well as minimize the restraint needed when handling an uncooperative animals. Third, there is no such thing as a puncture proof glove, but the Armor Hand gloves are very puncture resistant therefore decreasing the incidence of bites and scratches that penetrate the skin. They even resist the talons of birds of prey! They are a great tool for any fear free or low restraint techniques during the conditioning phase of working with the patient. Used them with cats, all size dogs, hawks, one eagle, raccoons, hedgehogs, kicking rabbits, large iguanas, tarantulas, large and small psittacine birds, etc. These gloves are well worth the investment. Keep several on hand so you can wash them in between patients."

Sherri McNary

Wildlife Rehabber

"I work with raptors, foxes, and raccoons. I feel the pressure of a talon or bite, but have yet to receive a single wound. I love my gloves. I love that they protect up to my elbow and they are so comfortable to wear. I can even grip a syringe while wearing them. BEST investment I ever made."

Roo's Corner

Lavaca, Arkansas

"Wildlife rehabilitators, veterinarians and staff, and any other animal professional, this info is for you! ArmOR Hand Gloves are strong enough to completely deter most bites - and at the minimum, greatly reduce damages that would be seen while handling completely bare-handed. In addition to high bite resistance, they are extremely dexterous and machine washable! I have been able to easily restrain animals (scruffing and vein holding is possible), perform thorough exams (on a snake that DID bite), and even give injections while wearing them! Thanks, ArmOR Hand for making a product we all have needed."

Denise Upton

Wildlife Rehabilitator

"I had a WILD Red Tail Hawk grad by ArmOR Hand Gloves - felt pressure but NO talons!"

Melanie Adkins

Veterinary Technician

"These gloves are fantastic! We are all much happier and confident with our fearful cat handling. We use Feliway on a clean pair of gloves and it helps to decrease stress for our feline patients."

Kerra Gray

Veterinary Technician

"LOVE these gloves! We have a couple cats that we would not be able to handle without these gloves. With these gloves, cats do not have to undergo anesthesia for routine visits."

Dr. Amy Pugh


"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!"


President of SOAR Wildlife

"WE LOVE YOUR GLOVES! These gloves are amazing. They are comfortable and have protected us against the most serious bites from all types of animals. I can not say enough about these gloves and how they have changed the way we can assist and care for wildlife. Thank you so much for developing these amazing gloves."

David Furedy

Wildlife Rehabilitator

"I have used these gloves with hawks, raccoons, squirrels, opossums, porcupines, foxes and many more animals. I know that I will be protected and also have the mobility necessary to make any quick adjustments. I use the gloves for both wildlife capture and rehab."
