All Four Paws Comfy Cone
Well, the picture really says it all. Here’s a new product from All Four Paws that adds soft comfort to those nasty Elizabethan collars for pet healing. Made out of nylon and foam, the comfy cone is soft and yielding, while being sturdy and protective.
The Comfy Cone is a solution for the age old problem of how to let your pet heal in comfort. Until now, the only cone shaped e-collar has been made out of hard plastic offering no comfort for your pet. The Comfy Cone is made out of nylon fabric laminated onto 1/2 inch foam which is soft and yielding while being very sturdy and protective. We've also included elastic loops to thread through the pet's own collar to keep the e-collar secure in place and keeping it from being pulled off or falling off of your pet. In addition, The Comfy Cone utilizes Velcro closures and tabs which adjust to fit many sizes and opens so you don't have to put your pet's head directly through the e-collar. It's now easy for your pet to eat and drink while wearing an e-collar. Simply fold back The Comfy Cone while eating, drinking or checking wounds and irritations. Out at night? The Comfy Cone features a reflective stripe making it safer for you and your pet to be out while dark. The Comfy Cone is reversible, water resistant and repellent, is easy to clean and folds flat for easy storage.
Buying the correct size e-collar is extremely important in order to give your pet the best protection to heal. All Four Paws have sized the Comfy Cone around the neck in inches and inches measured from neck to snout. The best way to make sure that your pet can not pull the collar off is to thread their collar with a strip of gauze through the elastic loops on the neck end of The Comfy Cone. This also helps if you need a larger size because of the neck to snout measurement but the neck is to loose.
The most important measurement in selecting the correct size is neck to snout. The collar needs to come past the nose or dogs and cats can reach many parts of their bodies. Another interesting reason for the collar to go past the nose is that it acts like blinders. With the Comfy Cone your pet feels like it is in their own little space which helps them to relax and rest so they heal faster.
Picking the correct size is crucial for the Comfy Cone to work. The Comfy Cone must go past your pet's nose or they will be able to reach the area that needs protection.

The Comfy Cone is one of the best products in the market for dogs and cats. Below is a testimonial from the manufacturer:
The Comfy Cone was developed out of a need for our Great Pyrenees Sabre. He had tail surgery and was sent home wearing the basic plastic cone. He was a 180lb dog and with the size he needed to wear he got stuck in doorways, he couldn't reach his food or water and the noise the cone made every time it hit something (which was often) made him so worked up and anxious that he couldn't calm down. Even when he would put his head in our laps wanting to be stroked he couldn't lay flat which made it even worse. So I did what most people do, I took it off. Because there wasn't any protection around the surgical site by morning he had to go back to the vet because his stitches opened. Because I wanted Sabre not only to heal but to do it relaxed and comfortable I made a soft collar by hand using a foam exercise mat I happened to have. When the vet saw how relaxed and how much his tail had healed she said I should market this for all dogs and cats. That was the birth of The Comfy Cone and having my vets' step by step feedback when she used it on animals post-op or ill was invaluable for product development.
The "Comfy Cone" was thoroughly tested by a numerous vet's on their worst and most fierce patients. They used it on animals that would fight, chew, bite or do just about anything possible to get out of a plastic e-collar. So from the first hand made collar for Sabre to the The Comfy Cone" launched at the Superzoo '07 trade show we can honestly say with confidence that it is thoroughly veterinary tested and approved and that it works!
