    Default Good alternative for the plastic neck collar

    Izzy has been using the neck donut since she was spayed on Monday and I loved it. I didn't want to take any chances because she can reach the cut so we purchase a more expensive neck collar but it is so much more comfortable that she seems to like it! I will post a picture of it.

    Never seen one of those before. How much does it weigh? I have a soft ecoller that flexes that I use. I'd never use the plastic ones again. I read a while back of someone's bully dieing because it got stuck and ended up suffercating in it.

    Glad that works for Izzy. And she even looks very cute it it!

    We tried one for HRH when she had her hernia repair and the cone from the vet was a bust, but she didn't like that either. We ended up just watching her closely, and she never did try to lick the area so we returned it.

    That's great! I've never seen them, but looking at it I bet a pool tube would do the trick too.

    Exactly, I did not feel comfotable leaving her in her crate all day with the plastic one. This collar is very light, it reminds me of the floating things we use in kids! I got it at Petco and you can inflate and deflate it so accomodate your dog's needs.

    haha, I keep telling her "it's a floating device for when we go on vacation, not a neck collar!"

    We don't use the collars at all, but that one looks good.

    It looks like she got her head caught in a donut hole! Too funny. But it does look way more comfy than those huge plastic cones.
    Glad to hear the cutie's healing up nicely.
