Whether you’re a pet person or not, you’ve seen what people refer to as “the cone” — the large, stiff cone-shaped collar that goes on your dog or cat when the vet doesn’t want your pet play with stitches, a cut or for some other reason. They look funny and we all lovingly laugh at them.
But, now there’s a new “cone” on the market – the Trimline Veterinary Recovery Collar. It’s more flexible, colorful and looks much cuter on your pup while still keeping them from doing the things they aren’t supposed to do.
I tried it out on Toby, who usually hates anything around his neck and he left it on and was even able to eat a treat with it on, because of it’s flexibility. But, it wasn’t so flexible that he would easily be able to reach whatever area he wasn’t supposed to. I also like that I can fold it and keep it in Toby’s travel bag. Knock on wood I won’t need it, but should something happen while traveling, like Toby gets a cut or a bite that he needs to leave alone, I can easily pull this out and put it on him.
As I was writing this, and actually after I published it, Toby got a piece of string caught on his nail while playing with a toy, and I couldn’t get him to leave it alone so I could get it off. Ding, ding, ding! I grabbed the Trimline collar, put it on him and snipped the piece of string and then worked to get it completely off his nail.
Couldn’t have timed that more perfectly!
