The manufacturer, 21 Century Animal HealthCare should provide more product detail and or product guidance as a basic courtesy to prospective customers. That being said, do NOT get the medium size for slender medium dogs. I have a rat terrier that has more neck flexibility than a snake has in its entire body! He should have been a Chinese Opera performer! By all measurements the medium size should have been the one to go with. Nah. He "flexed" his neck around it as if he was not even wearing it. For dogs with his build - Short-haired Jacks, Miniature Pinschers, Fox Terriers, Miniature Greyhounds, etc - get the large and be happy. The medium will be too short to work as described, especially if your pooch spends his leisure time exploring his privates like mine!! If you have a medium sized pooch with a fat neck - Frenchies, Pugs, etc - then you should be good since the size of their professional football-looking necks hinder their ability to look over their shoulders with ease. I would recommend this product IF you can get the sizing right.
This thing is perfect. My dog has a giant tumor on one of his front legs, it’s cancer and because of his age the only solution is amputation which I’m not doing, he’s 14. This cone is perfect, it’s light, he can see through it but can’t get to his leg. He tries to chew on it but can’t. IDK why so many people complain about the snaps to fasten it, I found it very easy to do. This cone is perfect and the price makes it even better!! His snout sticks out but when he puts his head down to try and lick his leg his snout is covered and he can’t get to it. Once again PERFECT
Seemed comfortable, stayed on no collar required. Held by small clips.
Purchased for a 120 lb very active dog who had hot spots on her neck and was scratching them raw as I looked for the right medicine and food for her. The good: 1) It is more flexible than the traditional plastic and stiff elizabethan collars of the past. It had a little give when she ran into the doorways and walls. 2) It has a pocket for a small gel pack (has to be purchased separately) which is great for "hot" dogs, like mine. And it would have been in the perfect spot for her hot spots. 3) I love the color. The Not-so-good (for my girl) 1) While it's easy to put on with clips, it's also easy to pop off. She popped it off everytime it was put on her because she ran into doorways. So she couldn't use it. In summary, the clips that fasten it together are rather small and very easily come undone. There are many of them on the xtra large size purchased. The smaller sizes are probably much more secure. Adding velcro would help also and I'll do that if I use it again. I'm keeping it in case anyone else here develops hot spots next year. Lastly, the gel pack is sold separately and that should be noted prominently in the listing for us frantic humans looking for quick relief for our companions. While this didn't work out of the box for my very large, very active dog, I will add velcro to secure it and keep it from popping off in the future should we need it again. If I was shopping for a much smaller dog, this product would probably be my choice in the future.
Puchased as an extra to have on hand. As good as the one I purchased from the farm store.
I love these e-collars, I just wish they made a chew proof one. We go through one e-collar every two or three days LOL!
My kitty Tiger had surgery on March 1st. She was spaded and she kept licking her stomach. So I placed an order with Chewy to order her a small e collar. It arrived in 2 days which was great. A friend of mine bought me a e collar from a pet store to use for Tiger. She really needed a e collar to stop her from licking her stomach. It was a little big and Tiger was struggling to eat her food. So I was happy when the e collar I ordered from Chewy's arrived. So I switched the other e collar with her new e collar from Chewy's. At first Tiger struggled and fought with me cause she didn't want this e collar on. She wore it for 14 days. I took it off of her for a couple of minutes several times a day. So she could groom herself, then it went back on. I recommend buying this e collar when your pet is scheduled for surgery especially if the surgery is on their stomach. Tiger is free now, she doesn't have to wear her e collar. She's a happy kitty. LOL
The collar was ordered after Myla, our toy poodle, had surgery to be spayed. She was afraid of the collar so she only wore it twice. I put a onesie on her which worked good. She weighs only 5 pounds so it was almost as big as her. Surgery is over, sutures are out and she it back to being our little girl again. I do not have an issue with the product. Couldn't know in advance she would be afraid
We have this cone for our Great Pyrenees, it’s worked great for when she had a hot spot by her tail as well as when she had her spay/gastropexy...she doesn’t mind this cone and sits nicely for us to put it on, the calming patch is pleasant to us and seems to soothe her a bit. She’s able to eat and drink and can also do stairs with this on. We’ve had it a year so far and clasps are holding up very well to being put on and off often the times we’ve needed it (we give her supervised time daily to be fine free). When the clasps or holes do eventually wear down to the point we need to replace the e-collar we will see if the calm paws soft caring collar is available in her size as we love that one for our mini poodle but this one certainly is better than other cones we’ve used in the past.
First of all that she doesn’t even fit into it her snout is longer than the cone secondly it’s very uncomfortable I will give this a 0 star rate very unhappy
