How good is Dr. Woof's new full wardrobe deal?
We did the maths so you don't have to!SHOP NOW
We believe in slow fashion.
In our design process, every decision is made with longevity in mind — from fabric choice, to stitching and construction, to quality assurance. We aim to create scrubs that can be worn weekly for at least two years (that's 104 times.)
Do they really last that long?
- Individual results will vary. We aim to make scrubs that can reasonably last 104 washes. But how long they last for you will depend on a number of things — from the fit and how gentle your washing machine is, to where you work, what you do and even the PH of your sweat!
Overall, based on our own experience and conversations with customers, 104 washes seems to be a fair estimate of how long a pair of Dr. Woof scrubs will last.
- Our founder Dave has been wearing his favourite navy scrubs multiple times a week since they launched in early 2021. And they're still going strong.
- Our founder An has been "Wearing the 💩 out of" her favourite skinny leg scrubs since their launch. With 50 washes and counting, there is still no sign of wear and tear.
- Many of our community report similar results to Dave and An. Scrubs from our first release still pop up often in social media pics ... looking fresh AF might we add!

Okay, fine! We made this one up. We have no idea how many compliments our scrubs will get you.
But based on our reviews, there's a pretty solid chance you'll get at least some compliments.
