I need to give my cat B12 shots in his scruff, but he's squirmy and I'm on my own, so I tried this bag. I got the medium size, but it was quite small. My cat is less than 6lbs, and he just barely fit. It might be good to be snug on your cat so he can't thrash around inside, but it's also hard to get him into it in the first place. I did manage to get him in, though. The problem is that this bag has an overlapping flap with velcro, which makes it easier to zip up but harder to access his scruff. I had to undo the collar to get access, but that opened the bag enough for him to escape. I'll have to return it. Seems good for nail trims or oral meds, though.
We purchased this at around 20 dollars & feel that it is sturdy and well built - very fair price range. We bought it for a small dog (around 15 lbs.) that bites us when we try to do his nails. We've tried a couple of different types of clippers as well as one of those dromel sander things - he'll have none of it. So, we put him in this bag, which he allowed us to do. He's normally a very cooperative dog. When it came time to clip the first tiny nail, however, he was able to twist his head in such a fashion as to nearly bite us. With 2 people, the bag, and a muzzle, we were finally able to clip this tiny fighting dog's nails. So, it ended up not being any easier than anything else we've tried. We are keeping it, though, because we have 2 cats that it may end up being handy for.
We didn't try using it for bathing, because our little monster likes baths - just has a nail clipping phobia. Probably something from his past. You never know what shelter dogs have been through before you adopt them. Anyways, I don't see how this would work for bathing. It seems that too much of the animal would be covered. I would be afraid that soap would be left on my pet & cause them to itch. The advertising says it can be used in such a manner, but if that's what you want to use it for, I would go through the reviews and see if anybody has had luck with this, because I just can't fathom how that would work.
Great quality - materials, workmanship, and design. Just didn't work for us. Will update if one of my cats ends up having to take medication or something. I'm hoping it will work better for that. No need to clip their nails in the bag. They are more cooperative than my little dog.
Update: We have since had to return this bag. One of my cat's ended up with a urinary tract infection & ended up on meds as a result. We put her in the bag and hung it in order to give her the pill. She fought, shifting the weight of the bag. The zipper slid enough due to her movements that she fell on her head. We did not have it hanging high (thank goodness), but we do have ceramic floors. My cat seems fine, but I won't use this again. I am giving it 3 stars because I feel this bag could be useful for some animals - just not ours. Try to hang it low, though, just in case. Or perhaps, one could find a way to keep the zipper from opening (a safety pin, maybe?) There's no way for us to try this again with our cat. After her experience, there is no way we would be able to get her back in the bag.
Once I add a snap to the velcro on the velcro part of this collar it will work. Right now the velcro isn't strong enough and they just push their way out of the neck. It just comes undone and will not hold them. I should have ordered a larger size as well. Bigger is better when it comes to this.
