The safe-handling dog muzzle has been designed primarily for use by animal-handling professionals such as veterinarians, vet nurses, groomers etc, to quickly and easily make a dog safe to handle. The muzzles are moulded from tough polypropylene, and have an adjustable webbing strap with a quick-fit/quick-release buckle. Although primarily designed for safe handling of dogs, the muzzles may also be used for general use. The muzzles can be disinfected and autoclaved. The small muzzle has a 55mm wide opening, and the large muzzle 85mm wide.
