We recently evaluated dozens of pet products and want to give you some of our favorites. Our 2008 winner included this product called the Comfy Cone. To read more of our 2008 product reviews – go to Top Pet Products of 2008 Reviewed – See the Top 5 Products!

One of the best products that has emerged in the pet market today is called The Comfy Cone. The name really speaks for itself. The Comfy Cone is a remarkable replacement to the plastic Elizabethan Collars (E-Collars). Although similar in shape, The Comfy Cone is made of a soft patented nylon fabric that is laminated onto half-inch foam. It is squishy & pliable; yet, sturdy and protective. I'm sure you have seen these old plastic "satellite dishes" on the necks of many recovering pets. The reason pet owners use E-Collars is to prevent their pet from licking and biting at wounds or surgical incisions.

Comfy Cone for Pets

The Comfy Cone is a remarkable replacement to the plastic Elizabethan Collars (E-Collars). Although similar in shape, the Comfy Cone is made of a soft patented nylon fabric that is laminated onto half-inch foam.



PROBLEMS & SOLUTIONS

There are several problems that present with the old-style plastic collars. The plastic e-collars cannot be worn 24/7 because they must be removed for eating or drinking. As a result, your pet may not get enough of the healing water they need during this time.

The most obvious problem is how uncomfortable these collars are for your pet. Both you and I know how important it is to feel comfortable when we are recovering from not feeling well. Your pet can rest comfortably in any position with The Comfy Cone. Additionally, many pets become anxious with these old plastic E-Collars. But, in the name of doing the right thing for our pets, we have had to resort to tough love. Well...no longer! The Comfy Cone is made out of soft, comforting black material on the inside that is calming and relaxing to your pet. This provides less distraction during healing.

A lot of thought went into inventing The Comfy Cone. Here are some of the other interesting features of this product:

  • The Comfy Cone has an ingenious reflective strip for walking your dog at nighttime.
  • Traditional E-collars have an undesirable medical type feel, but with the Comfy Cone – you can be more stylish.
  • The simple Velcro closure helps owners with hand mobility issues to easily fasten the product.
  • It can be worn 24 hours a day until the injury heals.
  • Flexible enough not to get caught on furniture or walls.
  • In the event your pet is intelligent enough to remove the collar, you can use the handy elastic loops on The Comfy Cone that can attach to your dogs regular collar.

    USES of the Comfy Cone

    For dogs that inure or are the process of inuring themselves through excessive licking. Great for pets post surgery to prevent access to healing surgical wounds.

    PROS for the Comfy Cone

    Unlike the uncomfortable hard plastic E-Collars, The Comfy Cone enables pets to move around without tipping over furniture or getting stuck in furniture grooves. The Comfy Cone is moderately priced around $15 - 30 and can be re-used over and over again. Its material is breathable, washable, and easily folded for storage.

    CONS for the Comfy Cone

    I recommend observing your pet wearing The Comfy Cone prior to leaving them alone. You need to ensure that they will not maneuver it off.
    FINAL WORD on the Comfy Cone

    When you purchase The Comfy Cone, you'll want to make sure your pet's nose does not expand past the rim. So, take the time to measure the length from their neck to their snout before you buy it. The Comfy Cone comes in a lot of different sizes and they will ask you for this measurement. For more information, go to The Comfy Cone.
