Your precious pet can still look cute and dapper even while healing from an injury with the Alfie Pet Zumi Soft Edge fuzzy fastener Closure Dog & Cat Recovery Collar. An animal in the wild instinctively licks her wounds to help sanitize them, but that’s not always helpful or safe in the modern age of stitches, bandages and medication. This adorable collar is made with lightweight translucent PVC with a padded gingham-print neck and fabric-trimmed edges for added comfort; a sturdy fuzzy fastener closure keeps her from traumatizing the surgical site or injured area by chewing or licking. Although she may initially dislike the cone, she should adapt quickly with lots of positive energy, praise and, of course, tasty treats.
Cute and stylish lightweight recovery collar features a translucent cone with a padded gingham-print neck and fabric-trimmed edges for extra comfort.
Designed to prevent pets from traumatizing a surgical site or wound by licking or chewing on the area.
Sturdy yet flexible PVC material prevents her from flipping the cone to access the protected area.
Durable fuzzy fastener closures can be adjusted as necessary for a snug, comfortable fit.
Available in two colors and four sizes to fit most pets, refer to the “Size” tab for details; most pets quickly adapt to wearing a recovery collar with positive praise and treats.
For the best fit, match the below dimensions to your pet's measurements as closely as possible. If you do not have a measuring tape, feel free to use the Printable Measuring Tape provided on this page.
Neck Circumference: Measure the broadest part of the neck, leaving room for two fingers.
Neck to Snout Length: Measure from the base of the pet’s neck, where their collar sits comfortably, to the tip of their nose. Your pet's nose must be shorter than the depth of the cone.
If your pet falls somewhere between two sizes, we advise ordering the larger of the two.
I purchased this product in small and extra small sizes for my senior cat whose neck is 8 inches in circumference. The extra small definitely is a tiny cone. Even on the edges of the velcro, it would be too tight for her. The depth of the cone might not have been sufficient either. This is a sturdy, well-made cone, and I like the soft center to avoid rubbing or scratching a pet's neck. The velcro holds well. A well-made product, but the extra small is probably best suited for a kitten or tiny puppy. I will hold onto this product for the next time I have a kitten or may donate it to a rescue group.

This collar is awesome if your pet had a surgery. I ordered it to prevent my cat from constantly licking his body and causing infections and unfortunately he could still reach some areas. So it didn’t work for us but the quality is really good and I love that it’s clear so the pet can still see good.
Wow, yes. Absolutely get this cone.

I have tried so many things to get my cat to stop overgrooming her belly long enough to let it heal over the last 2 months. So far this has been working great! The fabric that goes around her neck is very soft and there's some stretch to it, so she's able to move in this. She has been SO upset and determined to get every other cone/shirt situation off but she's now calm and purring with this on. She's fairly big (15 lbs) and I ordered a small based on reviews that said this ran large. Works just fine since there's room to adjust.
Far Better than the Alternative

This was for our ChiPin to wear after her spay surgery. It fit her perfectly and she did not mind wearing it. The velcro fastener is a lifesaver as opposed to the plastic e-collar buckle on the vet issued option. However, the fabric at the neck collapses and the cone sinks in an inch or so. There is just no structure at the neck, but this is also what makes this more comfortable than other options. This isn't really a big deal because she still cannot turn her neck to get to the incision area. Actually, this allowed her to drink water with the collar on, though we did remove it at feeding time. She also had no problem sleeping on a bolster bed while wearing the collar.

I started using this on my cat who has behavioral alopecia and it has been working wonders in the 4 days I’ve been using it so far. The fabric part really helps to be more comfortable to wear for long periods of time. I simply love this product!!
This Collar Runs Large!

The collar given to my kitty after her ACL surgery was hard and uncomfortable around her neck. So, I ordered this one for her. It's soft, comfortable and doesn't dig into her skin. I think it will work well once I get the proper size for her. I followed the directions for measuring her neck for a good fit which indicated she needed a medium because her neck measured 10.5 inches. It came today and was way too large, even velcroing it as far over as I could. Chewy was very responsive and is sending a small and waiving the shipping charge. So, I'm giving this item 3 stars because of the discrepancy in the instructions for measuring proper size and the item's actual size.

I have an 11lb miniature Dachshund and this collar worked perfectly after her spay surgery. We especially liked the clear plastic and the soft material next to her neck. It was easy to use and adjust to her size, so much better than the others we looked at.

This collar is so worth buying !! My cat had ear surgery and the collar that the vet put on was horrible! He hid and was just so uncomfortable! I got this and he is walking around the house again and can eat and drink so much better!!! He can also see through it so I think that is helpful. And it is so easy to put on. Very soft around his neck. He is a big kitty , 16.5 lbs and the small fit great. He has plenty of room. It’s adjustable so I could go smaller or bigger. I tried it on my kitten and it fit her too.
Much better than vet collar

We didn’t keep it on them all the time, tee shirts and halters were good, but sometimes they were getting out of control and these colors calmed them down for some reason. They be on for 15 minutes or so, I’d take them off and they’d remain calm. Hard to keep 6 month olds quite post op.

Absolutely the most comfortable e-collar option especially for a small pet. Soft fabric neck, transparent plastic collar and very lightweight.
Not cumbersome or heavy like so many other e-collars.
