My dog has a cloth collar. I have never noticed a problem before, but lately he seems to have scabs on his neck. He has hardly any hair on his neck. Anyways, I don't know if it is the collar or not. The collar is loose, but he still has these scraps. I was wondering if anyone knew a good type of collar, so that he doesn't keep getting hurt by it. Thanks.

The only thing i can think of is that there is something in the collar/material that he is ahving a reaction to. Try getting a real leather collar. They are a bit pricey but they last forever and it may solve your problem. Good Luck.

Poor baby.

I am sure that you checked for parasites. I think that it is an allergic reaction to the collar itself. When your dog is at home with you and at night I would let him go without a collar until the irritation goes away. I have seen natural hemp collars on the market, but maybe a soft leather one will help especially one without any coloring.

Hello Tonya

Do you use front-line/ advan if so maybe the reaction is from those types of flea products because it's applied close to that area, it seems to me when i apply it to my terrier's above their eyelids get irritated i think I'm going to stopped using those products.Cathy,CA.
