If your pet needs a collar to keep them from licking a surgical wound, this is by far better than "the cone of shame." My dog had CCL surgery and she was able to wear the Kong Collar without it interfearing with eating, sleeping or walking. Great Product.
I purchased this for my Cavapoo in a smaller size when she was spayed. I was thrilled. She actually loved wearing it, was able to eat, drink, enter her crate and do all the things Cavapoo puppies do without interference. However, she couldn't reach her incision and pretty much ignored it when she couldn't get to it. I bought this one in a BIG size for an 88 lb baby that my friend was rescuing, healing and hopefully placing in a loving home. He's a big ol' baby and a big ol' clutz, but he's a teddy bear! He had been injured with a gaping, deep, infected and maggot infested wound on his neck. He was covered in fleas and in a lot of pain. My friend was treating him but with minimal funds, she needed a few things for him exclusively. I bought this for him knowing it was exactly what she needed. Along with flea treatment and a HUGE femur bone, this fella' is on the road to recovery, thinks he's special because he's got a collar and the rest of the menagerie don't have one! Recent updates say he's on the mend, feeling terrific and just a big ol' happy boy!
This collar is very well made and looks like it would be a confortable alternative to the E Collar used for surgery. My input is that it runs BIG. I measured according to instructions and it was too large for my dog.
This collar was not wide enough to prevent my 32 pound male cocker spaniel from licking his neutering surgical site and getting a hematoma. Perhaps this collar would work on a smaller spaniel, but not a typical male. The size chart indicates that it should work, but that was not correct for us. We ended up having to use the horrible cone -of-shame from the vet, instead.
I bought this collar for my male dog, Dallas. He likes it much better than the cone. But, I won't stay inflated. I have to inflate it again every few hours. I wrote to "Kong" and they said I have to send them the receipt, not a credit card statement. I don't have a receipt as I ordered it online, from Chewy. I just wanted advice about how yo stop what is a slow leak. I am very unhappy.
I thought this would be better for my dog instead of the cone to keep her away from a wound on her tail. She's a 60 lb shepherd mix and she easily accessed her tail wound.
Our Goldendoodle totally freaked out in the plastic e-collar so we tried this and it worked great on her. Even though she could reach and lick her incision area she had to work on it to get there giving us time to see what she was doing. This collar probably works great on small to mid sized dogs because it is big enough to stop smaller/medium dogs from reaching an incision. Out Goldendoodle is long & tall so easier for her to curl around to lick. She slept good, did not mind wearing it for the 14 days requested by the vet for her type of surgery and I would recommend this collar!
There appears to be leaking air in this item. Just as we get it blown up and put it on our dog, it seems to be Los g air. My cavaliers still can bite at their paw it’s not wide enough around. The concept is good but it needs better execution
I ordered the Kong inflatable collar on a Monday night before my dog's surgery on Tuesday and it was delivered the next day before noon. It was a perfect fit, easy to inflate and my dog seemed to really like having it on. Thanks Chewy for a wonderful product and great service.
Our dog has severe anxiety and also allergy problems(both being treated by a vet), this sometimes leads to obsessive chewing behavior on her rear and tail and the ‘donut of shame’ has been a much lower stress alternative to the ‘cone of shame’. We love this product and would love other colors
