I get lots of visitors to the site who are trying to find alternatives to traditional elizabethan collars (also known as e-collars, cone collars , or lampshade collars). We had our own miserable time using an e-collar. So here are two more I’ve come across in my own research. Clearly your dog or cat doesn’t have to suffer in a big, bulky, plastic e-collar. I recommend planning ahead and have one of these alternatives on hand.
The Trimline Collar is a flexible, lightweight collar that is held in place with a drawstring. I’m not sure how well this will hold up to repeated uses by a dog though.
The Comfy Cone is a soft collar that can be folded down if need be and is held in place by your dog’s collar. It’s made of a 1/2 inch of foam sandwiched between durable fabric and it has reflective tape for night time use.
Be sure to checkout the other alternatives to the traditional elizabethan collar that we’ve found.
