It’s not just doctors who have to maintain a professional image. Veterinarians and vet nurses have to look the part. Not only do they have to look smart but they also have to be a reassuring presence. For that reason veterinarians often opt for non-white tunics, pants, dresses and coats. You can understand that a vet may want to look less like a doctor and more like a vet!
Many people look after their pets, better than they look after themselves. They may not take themselves off to the doctors very often. But at the first sign of a sneeze or runny eye their pet is off to the vets.
Vets practices, with one or two exceptions are nearly always commercial (private) businesses. Competition is high, particularly at the current time. Therefore it makes sense for all staff and veterinarians to be dressed in a way that complements the practice’s ethos.
What makes veterinary uniforms great?
From speaking to vets we understand workwear that’s comfortable and hard wearing, designed to minimise the threat of spreading infections, is what most vets are looking for. And if work wear is stylish that’s a welcome bonus. These are exactly the considerations that underpin our healthcare sector work wear making it perfect for veterinary uniforms.
For example, Alsicare's nurses’ dresses are perfect for veterinary nurses and front reception staff.
Made from a hard wearing poly cotton blend, our dresses come in a wide range of colours including bottle green. Standard features include a concealed zip front fastening, back vents with action pleats. Five pockets are included: 2 breast pockets, 2 lower front hip pockets, with one polyurethane pen pocket set to front panel on right pocket.
For veterinary staff preferring to work in trousers we have a wide range of tunics, including female tunics in a wide range of colours.
All our tunics benefit from The A-Move system which maximises freedom of movement and comfort. Our tunics can be worn with scrub suit trousers which are available in a wide range of colours including burgundy and navy blue.
We design and produce doctors’ coats in various styles. Available colours include bottle green, smokeberry and red. They are a practical uniform for consultations and we’re likely to have a colour that complements your corporate identity. Logos can be added to any veterinary workwear item.
