breed dogs are bred in such a manner as to have equal footing on all four legs,
to carry such a small torso. When the added weight of the traditional E-collar
is added to the neck, a natural stance for the dog, becomes very un-natural. If
this “tipping” seems to become more of a hindrance than a help, our product –
Neck’s BEST THING® can be a much better alternative. They are lightweight and
easier for the small breed dog to maneuver in, due to the equal balanced
patented design. Did you know the same light-weight product is used for birds
also? We would suggest this particular device because it is easy to slip on
your dog, and does not obstruct their peripheral vision, as the cone shaped
E-collar, which can also create a problem with the dog’s equilibrium. Of equal
concern, is to limit the dog’s activities while using any devise of this nature,
as it is there for a reason, and jumping up and down from furniture could
create undo strain on a healing injury.
is an alternative option, Neck’s Best Thing Medical brace is designed to
elongate the cat or dog’s neck making it nearly impossible for the paws to
reach the ears. Ears can be tricky though, and one should not leave their pet
unattended with any type of restraining devise, until it is obvious and clear
that the animal cannot reach their ears with their paws. The ear is a very
sensitive area for the cat and the dog, as they are easily annoyed by any type
of itch or substance that might be there. The traditional E-collar can be bulky
and cumbersome, even if fitted properly, sometimes making it easy to removed,
as the cat will desperately want to attend to her ears. It may help to crate or
kennel your cat with Neck’s BEST THING®, the best alternative to an E-collar.
This will make the movement of paw to the ear more restraining, while she is
adjusting to this alternative neck device.
traditional E-collar limits peripheral vision in the dog due to its cone-like
shape. This devise also restricts some of the dog’s normal activities, such as
the ability to bend his neck and reach his food and water bowls, again, due to
its cone-like shape. Without taking out walls and doors, or adjusting the
height of the food and water bowls, this can be, and is frustrating to the dog.
A good solution here is to consider other E-collar alternatives. Neck’s Best
Thing does not limit the peripheral vision of the dog. This line of sight is
vital to the dog’s equilibrium, and daily normal function – especially in very
active dogs. Using this alternative device would also enable the dog better
extension to his food and water, therefore, lessening the trauma and the
behavioral impact of wearing the more traditional E-collar / Cone collar /
