Online Shop for the Comfy Collar
Comfy Collars are a popular alternative to the elizabethan collar. They can help to reduce the stress suffered by dogs and cats that are recovering from surgery or minor injuries. The 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:
- Comfy Collar Size 1, 17-22cm / 7-9 inches
- Comfy Collar Size 2, 22-30cm / 9-12 inches
- Comfy Collar Size 3, 30-40cm / 12-16 inches
- Comfy Collar Size 4, 42-55cm / 17-22 inches
- Comfy Collar Size 5, 55-80cm / 22-32 inches
The sizes are based on neck measurements (the circumference) without any finger wiggle space. 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.
Using the fabric hoops with your pet’s regular collar to secure the positioning of the Comfy Collar is strongly recommended. If the regular collar is used it will prevent the Comfy Collar from being pulled off. For cats please use a non-elasticated regular collar.
All pets should be supervised to ensure they are unable to reach any of the affected areas because some of the more determined pets may still be able to reach their hind quarters, tails and paws.
