Comfy Collars for Cats and Dogs
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.
We endeavour to despatch all Comfy Collars as quickly as possible. On weekdays we despatch orders received before 2pm on the same day. Orders received before 8am on Saturday are despatched the same morning. Weekend orders are despatched on Monday. We will send you an email confirmation when the Comfy Collar is on its way to you.
The Comfy Collar is available in five sizes:
- Comfy Collar Size 1, 17-22cm / 7-9 inches - £11
- Comfy Collar Size 2, 22-30cm / 9-12 inches - £13
- Comfy Collar Size 3, 30-40cm / 12-16 inches - £15
- Comfy Collar Size 4, 42-55cm / 17-22 inches - £17
- Comfy Collar Size 5, 55-80cm / 22-32 inches - £19
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.
We welcome comments about using the Comfy Collar. The photos shown above help to illustrate how the Comfy Collar is worn (click an arrow on the side to see more). Please send us an email with your comments and a photo if you would also like to be featured on our home page.
We recommend you carefully measure your pet’s neck before ordering to ensure you have selected the right size of Comfy Collar for your pet’s needs. Please note that even if the collar has only been briefly tried on we will still be unable to accept its return for hygiene reasons. For in-between sizes, or sizes smaller than Size 1, you may find using the ProCollar gives a better fit.
The Comfy Collar is not recommended for breeds with longer bodies and necks such as daschunds, whippets, greyhounds or dobermans. In these circumstances you may find it preferable to use the ProCone or the Anti-Lick Strip. To protect the facial area and eyes we recommend the Optivizor.
