You have an alternative to the plastic cone of shame
Our Instagram friend @doberman_khaleesi was spotted wearing the Kong Collar around town. A reporter from the Wall Street Journal heard about this and called to learn more.
Upon the interview they also produced a video. Excerpts from the Wall Street Journal Article (published June 16, 2017) and the link to the article are as follows:
"Khaleesi cried and couldn’t venture out into her kingdom for days.
The 6-month-old Doberman was wearing a hard plastic recovery collar prescribed by her veterinarian after being spayed. The cone-shaped device was to keep Khaleesi—who is named after a character on the popular HBO series “Game of Thrones"—from tearing her stitches out.
“Her face looked so pitiful,” Ms. Vandenberg said. Unable to take her dog’s whimpering, she purchased a bright blue inflatable recovery collar to replace the veterinary cone.
Across America, many pet owners are doing the same. The new collars—some made with velvety fabric and plush cushioning—more closely resemble travel pillows."
