Q: Has anyone used the alternate E-collars - Soft-E-Collars?
April 5, 2009 | By Cheryl | 7 answers | Expired: 2013 days ago
We'll be having our puppy spayed next month and I'm wondering if anyone has any feedback on the newer type Elizabethan collars available now. I'm not sure I'll need a collar at all, but if I need to keep her from licking - just wondering if it is worth trying the softer types instead of the old/hard plastic type. I know the old ones can make some dogs uncomfortable/fearful of them.

You may not need one. Of the 20 or so dogs that have come through my house in the past year and been fixed, not one has needed an e-collar. They sniffed at the incision site every once in a while, but left it alone. The softer ones sound like a good thing, though.

Yes, we did use one of the softer new ones for Jules. She had a leg issue and would not leave it alone. I could not put the hard plastic on her, but I found a very sfot alternative at Dr Foster and Smith. It inflated and only went around her neck. WORKED GREAT!!! No cone.
