Are the gloves bite-proof?
The gloves are bite and scratch resistant. Every animal and every bite is different. We love hearing about when the gloves are used and injury is prevented altogether - there are countless reviews of this scenario on our Facebook page as well as our website. Many factors are at play when an animal bites: pet stress, interpreting body language, proper restraint technique, handler experience, etc. The purpose of The ArmOR Hand Animal Handling Gloves is you are able to achieve proper and safe animal restraint technique. With proper and safe restraint technique, the chance of injury is lessened. The gloves are textured, so pets will not slip through your hands. Pet stress will not be increased because you are able to maintain proper restraint technique – no more pets slipping through! Many vets who are certified in low-stress animal handling love the gloves because they are able to achieve the recommended “less is more” approach when handling cats.
Are the gloves washable?
Yes. They are machine washable and can also be simply wiped clean.
Which glove is right for me?
Currently there are 2 styles. The Original Animal Handling Glove and the Procedure-Palpation Glove. The Procedure-Palpation Glove is the exact same glove as the first, but the first 3 fingertips are exposed. This allows for toe-nail trims, aspirating for cytology, cleaning ears, cleaning and clipping wounds, palpating, administering vaccines, and the list goes on. Which one is the right choice for you depends on your needs.
Can you administer a vaccine with the original animal handling glove?
Yes. The glove has superior flexibility and dexterity, so you are able to administer a vaccine.
Is the size chart accurate?
It is. If you use the chart and measure the circumference of your hand, you will get the proper fit.
Why does it take so long to receive an order if it is out of stock?
Each glove has about 20 parts to it. The gloves are hand-cut and sewn. It takes time to ensure the glove is put together properly to ensure a perfect fit and function.
What animals have the gloves been used with?
The gloves have been used with a variety of species and in a number of locations such as zoos, veterinary practices, animal shelters, wildlife rehab centers, and grooming facilities. As always, please be cautious when handling animals.
