My cat had been scratching his neck due to allergies and had managed to give himself an incredibly severe wound on his neck. I had tried everything to keep him from scratching. I eventually decided to try a soft collar and purchased this one. He tolerates the collar very well (took about an hour to get used to it). And, the soft material at the base of the cone helps to not irritate his wound, and the drawstring closure helps to get it snug and secure so that he can’t get under it or move it out of place (can spin it around but not move it up his neck). His wound is finally healing! Without this collar, I’m not sure what would have had to happen to him if the wound wouldn’t heal and he My cat had been scratching his neck due to allergies and had managed to give himself an incredibly severe wound on his neck.

There are some reviews about the shape being not perfectly circular due to the packaging of the cone. This is true, but it hasn’t impacted the ability to use it. The other positive was that because of the type of material it’s made of, I was able to cut the length (diameter) down by an inch or so in order for my cat to tolerate it better as he will need to wear it more long-term than most animals probably might. And, as it’s just protecting his neck and not used to prevent him from getting access to his body, I didn’t need the additional length. My cat is 10 pounds and the small fit him perfectly.… more
Soft and Comfy
on Apr 7, 2019
Recently, my dog had a paw problem and she would not stop licking it. I prefer to control the issue mechanically -- instead of with drugs. I went to the pet store locally and the selection was limited to inflatables and rock-hard, rigid plastic. This does the job and isn't a torture. My dog is 12 pounds and I bought the small -- it fits just right.
Lightweight, Right-sized... but does not keep round shape
on Mar 16, 2019
Bought this for a 5.5 lb kitten recovering from spaying. Worked well (despite her not being to see through the cone), mainly because it was sized correctly and was light enough for her small frame. The reason for 4 stars is that the cone is not round after putting it on because it is packaged flat, making it difficult for her to see.
Comfortable post surgery collar

Comfortable collar around neck, perfect size for toy breed, soft material yet stiff enough to prevent them from getting to surgical area, can easily rest/sleep with it on, neck tightens snuggly but comfortable

We recently had 4 cats spayed and needed to make sure they wouldn't lick the sutures. Feral cats are a pandemic. Anyway, the x-small fit 6 month old kittens and probably an average sized cats. Somehow, one managed to get a collar stuck around their waist/against the suture hours after the operation and we had to cut it off. We have one of the inflatable ones that Kong manufactures as well and these don't require a collar to stay on like it does -plus it deflates, but at least the strap can be unvelcroed and removed. They both have their pros and cons, but I still think they're both better than the hard, plastic ones.
Alternative to the big plastic cone.

Ended up not needing to use them for my 2 puppies that were recently spayed. I will be returning these. They do seem a bit misshapen when you take them out of the package. I put them over a large plastic bottle and stuffed plastic bags underneath to round them out. Seemed to help.

honestly, amazing. my cat is very tiny and skinny and the other e collars would just make it hard for her to eat and drink her water so i’d end up taking them off. with this she’s able to do everything normally and it doesn’t irritate her wound. so so great.
Cat did not like this collar
on Dec 20, 2018
I bought this collar because my cat had a clear but hard plastic one that made feeding and drinking water almost impossible. However she became very nervous when I put this on her and started overreacting. I believe it was probably because it is dark blue and she cannot see at all out of the sides...it's probably like being in a dark tunnel. I put the clear one back on her and she was fine. Chewy refunded my money no questions asked. Thank you chewy!
Misshapen but flexible
on Dec 7, 2018
Pros: It's flexible, so my cats were able to sleep more comfortably than with a plastic cone. The cone is durable. Easily washable.
Cons: The way it is packaged makes the cone misshapen, not a circle (I tried to reshape it but was never able to make it round). After several uses the string becomes unfurled.
Side Note - The small size was able to fit my 5 lb cat but not my 4 lb without alterations

Our small dog did not mind wearing the Kong EZ Soft Collar. It is much more comfortable than plastic cones and the extra 1" depth kept her from getting to bite marks for faster healing. It's bend-ability made it easy for her to get around and lie down. Would prefer choice of colors other than blue for female pets.
