Each garment is lined with a soft plaid flannel fabric for comfort as well as an absorbent mesh liner for protection from leakage. For light seasonal flow or minor excitable urination the Garments may be used alone. For heavy seasonal flow or more serious cases or urination, simply attach a Simple Solution Diaper Garment Pad (10608) to the product's built-in mesh liner. For control with bowel movements we recommend using a regular baby disposable diaper underneath our Diaper garment. Machine washable on gentle cycle. Hang to dry. When sizing the male dog we recommend to go up one size.
