Default clothing for my arthritic chis

my 12 year old jose has lots of joint and spine issues. bending his limbs to get him into traditional clothing is pretty much impossible. can anyone direct me to clothing that is easy on and off? the best would be something that fastened on top (along the back) that didn't need to go over his head.

thanks!

Why do you need for him to be in clothes? Sounds like the less you mess with his limbs the better.

There are fleeces that can either zip up at the back, or has a pannel from the neck that goes under the body and fastens either by buttons or velcro.

So if you know anyone that knits then get them to knit one of these!!

I've used a similar pattern from Truenorthknitting.com
She sells finished sweaters, too.

I know EXACTLY what you need.

Shop for Fido Fleece® Sweaters by PetSafe - GRP-FFLEECE

I have a couple, they are pretty warm, seem sturdy, and the main thing- they velcro over the back.
