We recommend: Bencmate Protective Dog Collar
At first glance, the pillow dog collar looks a lot like human, travel neck pillows. However, this is not the kind of dog collar that you buy for your pooch for the sake of comfort on your road trips or flights together.
Like the Elizabethan dog collars, pillow collars serve a protective purpose after surgical operations to prevent the dog from reaching and licking actively healing wounds.
While pillow collars may not offer as much coverage as things like cone Elizabethan collars, they are definitely a lot more comfortable. This is because of their puffed up design around the neck.
The puff can be as a result of one of two design styles. The first are the inflatable pillow collars. These rely on air for their fullness. They may be inconvenient in that they need to be inflated before use. However, they make up for this with the convenience in terms of how easy it is to just deflate and pack them away when not in use.
The other style design is stuffing like traditional pillows. While these are easier to use and often offer firmer support, they may be inconvenient to store when no longer needed. It is also best to go for options with waterproof linings to avoid the hustle of having to deep clean to get rid of things like saliva and other fluids.
Pillow collars are a great alternative to cones and Elizabethan collars, especially for small and medium-sized dogs that have undergone surgery.
