Editor's Notes

May 21, 2020:

Dogs can have a difficult time restraining themselves from itching, biting, and licking at wounds, scars, and stitches on their bodies. It's very crucial that they do not touch these sensitive parts to allow proper healing. Cones are a great solution to help minimize contact with those areas. It's important that when they are recovering from surgery that they have the most comfortable setup while they rest on their dog beds and maybe get some treats for working through the healing process. Cones can also be very useful for grooming and treating animals to help avoid biting and other unwanted contacts.

The Original Comfy Cone is a nice, durable option for bigger dogs due to its larger construction. It's water-resistant which makes it easy to wipe clean with a rag, mild soap, and water. The Focuspet Cone is also a suitable option for larger breeds that features a fluorescent strip along the border of its construction to allow better visibility of your dog at night.

The Creation Core Protective Cone is a whimsical option that comes with a small bow detail. It's available in 4 colors to help match the aesthetics of you and your healing pup. The Alfie Pet Pink Recovery Collar is a fun option that has white pearl-like trimming along the border of the cone and is machine washable.

Some of these models come with velcro closures to secure the cone on your pet. Be careful before applying and removing these options, especially if your dog has long fur since hair can get stuck in the velcro, causing discomfort or pain if removed improperly. It's recommended to monitor your furry friend while they're wearing any cone since they could find a way to contact their skin or take it off.
