E-collar for Dogs: Cone Collar, Recovery Collar :

Soft Recovery Pet Cone E-Collar for Cats and Small Dogs by Weeway on sale Elizabethan collars, or E-collars, are protective plastic cones that stop your kitty from licking or scratching at incisions or injuries. Most domestic cats spend one or two miserable weeks wearing the collar after their spay or neuter operation. Your pet likely will have a difficult time eating, drinking and using the litter box for the first few days of his E-collar experience.

All Four Paws Tan Comfy Cone ..

Ah, the dreaded "cone of shame…"

Any time after surgery, we strive to send your pet home with an incision that looks as nice as possible. The plastic cone or E collar (for Elizabethan collar) was created to prevent licking. Without it, licking or chewing can cause irritation and infection, which may leave a hairless, discolored, ugly scar – for life.

Despite the stubborn urban legend that animal saliva speeds up healing, licking an incision is a sure way to slow down healing. The tongue, especially in cats, is so rough that it can destroy healing tissue and therefore delay healing. Worse: depending on the particular pet or level of discomfort, licking can lead to nibbling and chewing, especially when nobody is around to watch or distract them.

I cannot begin to count how many times pet parents ask me if their pet really has to wear an E collar. And I cannot begin to add up all the extra money owners have paid to fix open incisions at their vet or the emergency clinic. Pets have an amazing inherited skill, which allows them to chew up twenty stitches or staples in less than two seconds flat. By the time you realize it, it’s too late!
