Comfy Collars are used as an alternative to the traditional lampshade collar, to reduce the stress suffered by cats and dogs that are recovering from surgery or minor injuries.
Unlike the elizabethan collar (also known as the e-collar, ecollar, buster collar, surgical collar or space collar) the comfy collar does not restrict the field of view, so your dog or cat is less likely to bash into furniture. It is also much easier for them to see and reach their food bowl. If you’ve ever seen a dog or cat trying to eat whilst wearing a lampshade collar you will know just how difficult and stressful that can be!
Each comfy collar has an outer layer and a separate inflatable inner tube, with a velcro fastening strap on the outside edge and fabric hoops to secure against your pet’s collar on the inside edge. The top-up valve can be accessed through the outer layer and pushed in so that it stays flush. There is also a zip on the outer layer for easy removal of the inner tube.
The Comfy Collar is available in five sizes:
- Size 1 - 17-22cm / 7-9 inches
- Size 2 - 22-30cm / 9-12 inches
- Size 3 - 30-40cm / 12-16 inches
- Size 4 - 42-55cm / 17-22 inches
- Size 5 - 55-80cm / 22-32 inches
You are aiming for a snug fit, similar to a polo neck sweater, with the collar fully inflated and the velcro strap area positioned around the back of the neck. This will provide the maximum benefit for restricting neck movement. A baggy fit is less effective. The sizes are based on neck measurements (the circumference) without any finger wiggle space.
When fitting the Comfy Collar all pets should be supervised to ensure they are unable to reach any of the affected areas because with any type of collar (including elizabethan collars) some of the more determined pets may still be able to reach their hind quarters, tails and paws. You will need to use your pet’s regular collar to thread through the fabric tabs to prevent the Comfy Collar from being pushed off the head.
