Guard-Tex Leg and Tail wrap has been favored by vets, trainers, and owners for over a quarter-century. Dry to touch, Guard-Tex sticks only to itself, and does not pull animal hair or leave a sticky residue when removed. Guard-Tex does not stretch; minimizing danger of wrapping too tightly and restricting circulation. Guard-Tex is made of surgical gauze impregnated with natural latex, making it waterproof. It does not soak up moisture, become soggy or heavy when wet.
