Frequently Asked Questions

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°C, 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 up to 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. Please watch our demonstration video on how to cut Vetfleece, of which our links are situated on our main page, Facebook page or YouTube page. We advise to use a Stanley knife and not a pair of scissors, as scissors will cut through the pile of the fleece leaving a tapered edge.

Not me personally, but all of our pet’s sleep on Vetfleece.

Vetfleece is a vet grade fleece cage liner. Vetfleece is ideal for lining a cage with its non-allergenic properties etc.

Absolutely! Inco pads are Vetfleeces best friend. These help with the prevention of water trails from the whelping cage or pen. We even have our own range of washable and disposable inconti pads. We do recommend that you purchase Greenback Vetfleece for this purpose, the backing is specially designed to allow fluids to easily pass through and straight onto the inconti pad, whereas the non-slip backing is made of rubber and will not let all the liquid pass through.

Vetfleece is made of 100% polyester. One of polyester’s properties is that it’s liquid repellent so it won’t absorb any liquid or any dyes or colourants that may be in the liquid. So no, it won’t stain!

Vetfleece can sometimes have a slight smell, this is due to the way our fleece is manufactured, but be assured that this will fade and is not toxic or offensive in any way. Plus Vetfleece is liquid repellent, so you fleece shouldn’t pick up any new smells either.

Vetfleece will not moult, but there will be some slight fraying at the edges. This is normal and will stop after the first couple of washes.

The best way to know you’ve got genuine Vetfleece is to buy it direct from us right here on our website, on our eBay store or on our Amazon store. Other retailers do sell genuine Vetfleece too, if you have bought a piece of Vetfleece elsewhere, it will have the Vetfleece logo on the washing instructions label. There is a misconception that if it has a greenback then it is genuine Vetfleece. Unfortunately, there are some unscrupulous retailers out there selling inferior fleece products so please be wary when purchasing online.

IF EATEN PLEASE SEEK VETERINARIAN ADVICE STRAIGHT AWAY. Our Vetfleece has a tough and tightly knit backing to prevent your pet eating the fleece but there are some pets out there that will not stop at anything just to try and eat it and you as an owner will be aware if you have a pet like this.
