Frequently Asked Questions
How do I keep my vetfleece looking it's best?
All of our vet fleece comes with a sewn on washing label. We recommended that the Greenback Vetfleece is washed at 40°C, but vet fleece can handle much higher washing temperatures of up to Autoclavable standard 120°,which is normally used in veterinarian practices to kill all bacteria but this temperature does shorten the life time of the vet fleece if used all the time. Our non-slip fleece can be washed at temperatures upto 40°C, any hotter than this and the backing can start to deteriorate.

You can cut vetfleece at home by using a Stanley knife, accompanied by a marker pen and ruler this will ensure the best results from cutting.

While there are gaps/spaces in the backing the fluid will not pass through as easily.
