Veterinary Scrubs That Have Your Four-Legged Patients in Mind

When you’re on the hunt for your next pair of veterinary scrubs, finding a set that complements your furbaby profession can be tough. Not only do you want a fashionable uniform, you want one that will withstand pet hair, muddy paws, and multiple washes. 

With scrubs ranging from cat and dog scrubs to other animal print scrubs, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. There’s no unisex, one-size-fits-all veterinary print or lab coat. There’s also no shortage of Tooniforms workwear out there. But if you’re looking for fashion and function, you have to know what you need.

Scrubs made from durable and breathable material help you focus on your four-legged patients. Finding the softest pet-friendly fabrics and colors will keep you comfortable all day long. This guide will help you pick out the best materials, styles, and colors when you grab your next pair of vet scrubs.

Focus on Comfort and Durability When Picking Scrubs

When shopping for your next pair of veterinary scrubs, make sure you find a scrub set made from high-quality materials. Polyester is great because it’s durable and resistant to staining. This means you’ll spend less time scrubbing those pesky pet stains and feel confident that they won’t rip with an ill-placed paw. 

Since you spend a fair amount of time on the floor when examining your four-legged patients, you want to find scrubs that stretch when you need to get low. Spandex is perfect for adding that wiggle room when you’re nose to snout chatting with your patient.

As a vet you probably warm up quickly and even work up a sweat, especially when you have to pick up a pup or two throughout the day. Scrubs made with rayon are moisture-wicking and breathable so you can stay comfortable all day long. 

Keswi scrubs are made of a 74% polyester, 20% rayon, and 6% spandex blend — combining the best features of all the best materials. Keswi scrubs are made to last, easy to care for, and wrinkle-resistant. Their four-way stretch fabric moves with you and the luxe micro-peached finish is the softest around. 

Keswi scrubs are also moisture-wicking to keep you cool but are also made of the perfect weighted materials. This keeps you comfortable no matter the temperature and makes your scrubs less likely to tear if Rex’s paw or Zoe’s talon gets too close. 

Finding the perfect vet scrubs starts with materials. Once you’re confident in your fabrics, finding the best style to match your personality is only one click away. 

Scrub Styles for Everyone

Veterinary scrubs are more than just an outfit. From the scrub cap you wear during procedures to the T-shirt you wear underneath your scrub top, this uniform helps you do your job. Finding the right style and fit is key to making you feel your best all day long. Making sure the top is flattering and not too revealing when you’re picking furry friends up off the floor will keep you comfortable and confident.

Scrub pants can also make or break comfort and function inside the veterinary office. Finding the right length as well as pant leg style ensures your clothes don’t get in the way of your responsibilities. Whether you prefer elastic or drawstring waists, picking a pair of pants that will stay put will spare you a lot of stress. 

You also need plenty of pockets. Not only for your pen and stethoscope (we know you love your Littmann), but for treats! Treats make life easier for both you and your pet patients, so you need scrubs with ample space for snack storage. Plus, keeping your healing hands free to assess and soothe your four-legged patients ensures a more pleasant experience for everyone. 

Rather than basic unisex scrub sets, Keswi scrubs come in four amazing styles for both the ladies and men. No matter your personal style, Keswi has you covered. 

Women’s Scrubs

All of Keswi scrubs come in sizes XS-3X, and the women’s pants come in regular and petite. Once you’ve picked out your perfect style, what’s next? Choosing a color, of course.

Pet-Friendly Colors

According to the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), although dogs and cats aren’t completely colorblind, they do perceive colors differently from humans. Blues, greens, and purples are colors that dogs and cats can see more clearly than reds and yellows. The AAHA also suggests choosing more natural colors versus bright white to help your patients differentiate their surroundings.

Choosing colors on the blue, green, or purple side of the spectrum can help your furry friends see you better and even provide a calming effect according to the AAHA. Keswi scrubs come in five stunning yet calming colors. Navy blue, royal blue, and wine round out other cool, earthy tones.

Animal print scrub tops can hide excess fur and tough stains, but you want to make sure you pair them with a solid scrub pant. In the vet clinic, you can have a little fun with prints featuring anything from pandas and koi fish to kittens and puppies. 

Check out these fun animal printed tops to wear with a pair of Keswi scrub pants. You can also use a black or pewter scrub set as a base layer, and pair it with a lab coat or this adorable purple cat print scrub jacket. (You can even look for a coordinating tote, like this one from Vera Bradley to complete your look.)
