Dog Recovery Cones

Help give your dog a stress-free recovery period. Gone are the days of the “cone of shame,” that only added more discomfort to your pup’s recovery. Today dog cones can be soft and comfortable, acting more like a pillow than a hindrance to their happiness. But these dog recovery collars are still functional in keeping your pet from licking or chewing their wounds. And dog cones can even be used temporarily to keep your dog from licking any topical ointments on their skin. Keep in mind, dogs rarely enjoy wearing recovery collars. So be sure to provide plenty of treats and extra love to help support their recovery. You may even consider building positive associations with an e-collar prior to surgery by working on some training exercises. This will help your dog adjust to life in a collar and minimize added stress to their recovery process. Shop Petco for an assortment of dog first aid and paw care, including bandages, test kits, pain medicine, and wound sprays.
