Blue Sky Scrubs - How to Choose the Best Scrubs for Veterinarians

If you are a veterinarian, finding a pair of scrubs to handle everything your furry patients can put you through can be challenging. In addition, it can be frustrating to look for scrubs that are not only comfortable but durable enough to handle the paw prints and pet hair they are subjected to throughout the day.

With all of the options out there, choosing the right scrubs can seem overwhelming. But don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be. This article will give you tips on what to look for when looking for the perfect scrubs.


Scrubs made from a breathable, soft, pet-friendly fabric will keep you comfortable all day long and allow you to focus all of your attention on your patients. Choosing scrubs made with moisture-wicking fabrics can help keep you dry throughout the day.

On your search for the perfect scrubs, steer clear of 100% cotton scrubs because they will turn you into a fur magnet. Instead, look for a cotton and polyester blend that includes spandex. The cotton-poly blend will give you the comfort you are looking for and be durable enough to resist damage from the claws and paws you deal with throughout the day. Added spandex will allow you to bend, reach, or even chase after a mischievous patient without any pulling or tearing.

And since accidents can happen, choosing scrubs with a stain-resistant finish can help prevent stains. Fabrics that repel liquids will make treating and preventing stains easier, leaving your scrubs looking professional throughout the day.


Nothing can put a damper on your day like having to work in a pair of uncomfortable scrubs. Due to the constant bending, stretching, and moving that is a part of taking care of your patients, it’s essential that your scrubs fit well.

Wearing a slightly tailored top that is still loose can give you the professional look you need while giving you room to move around easily. And if you’re a woman, choose women’s scrub tops for a more flattering fit.

When looking for pants, choosing the correct length is essential. You want to make sure that your pants are long enough to allow you to move comfortably and keep your skin covered while stooping and bending over while working with patients, but not long enough to cause you to trip.

Color Matters

Did you know that dogs and cats aren’t entirely colorblind? Even though they aren’t colorblind, they still perceive color differently than humans. Choosing colors on the blue, green, and violet end of the color spectrum are great choices because they don’t appear as harsh as white or as dull as gray to dogs and cats. They are also calming and can help reduce stress levels in animals.

Layering Pieces

After choosing the perfect scrubs, adding base layers can complete your look. Tee shirts and long-sleeved tees can provide extra comfort under scrub shirts. While vests and jackets are a great way to add warmth during cold winters.

Don’t Forget the Pockets

You’re going to want to make sure your scrubs have plenty of pockets. Not only do you need a place to keep your pens and your stethoscope, but your patients will appreciate a special pocket for treats! Plenty of pockets will keep your hands free and your patients happy!
