You typically see an E-collar, also called a cone, when your dog is hurt or healing from surgery. And as humans we feel helpless! After all, our dogs can’t talk to us to tell us what hurts! Vets do everything they can and as owners we try our best to make the recovery as painless as possible. That being said it’s difficult to help them. A dog’s natural instinct goes back to wolves in the wild, where there’s no stitches or antiseptic. They have to fix themselves by biting out a stuck thorn or licking an open wound.
“Healing thy self” is the opposite of what we want after professional treatment, so as concerned owners we have few options. An Ecollar, or Elizabethan collar, is the most common tool you see to protect your pet from themselves, but to say those ‘limit’ your dog’s movements is a huge understatement. At Ruffin’ Wranglers we know how important mobility is to your pet, so we found an alternative for your dog in recovery.
