WCIF Life jackets for pets

WCIF Life jackets for pets

Postby Novaspes » 02 Mar 2013, 15:36

I have seen dogs wearing life jackets during particularly difficult sessions of river tracing, as well as cats swimming with one on during health exercises at a vet clinic back in Europe. Does anyone know if I can find something like that in Taipei?

Thanks.

PS please refrain from telling me how stupid that looks and that animals either know how to swim or don't belong in water.

I have seen them in a couple of pet shops but with people complaining about Icon's directions, I'll take a picture of the item and report back full details at a later date, OK? I am sort of sure I saw them at my local sports equipment place, but I could be wrong. And I took notice because they were big size only, not suitable for my small breed doggies.
