It is a plastic cone which fits around your pet's neck to prevent it from scratching or biting existing injuries, allowing them to heal faster.
How to select the size of an e-collar for a dog?
If your pet has previously used an e-collar from a veterinary clinic, ask your veterinarian. Otherwise, first, use the size of your pet's regular collar to obtain the circumference for the neck hole size. Be sure that you can fit two fingers comfortably between the collar and the neck of a dog. Ensure that the collar is not restricting breathing, swallowing, or eating.
Second, measure the length between neck and the nose of a dog. Make sure the cone height of an e-collar is greater than the length measured. The e-collar needs to be big enough to prevent a dog from licking or chewing its injuries on the body or on the head, and it should cover most of the head.
E-collars from e-collarsdirect have two adjustments for better fitting, and the size can be adjusted.
