bought one for our dog after she had ACL surgery - very hard to find one that was completely transparent - all are translucent, but really: fuchsia? aqua? why aren't they ALL completely transparent? I did finally find one that was transparent.
next problem: the clips used to hold the collar together are easily lost. And if you have any overhang at all (meaning a portion of the collar that extends beyond where the clips secure the collar) then the dog can easily and quite by accident pop the collar - next thing you know, you are back to the ER getting the dog restitched.
Our fix: after buying the transparent cone, I bought some self-adhesive Velcro, sized the cone onto the dog, trimmed some of the overhang, and applied the Velcro - seems to be working.
But being able to buy a better product right at the store would have been better.
I would recommend this to a friend!

Survived over 3 weeks of abuse

I own a 38 lb lab/ terrier mix that is a hyper, active, goofy idiot. She's intense, and I was skeptical that this cone could last any amount of time on her. My vet recommended using a cone to help clear up hotspots caused by allergies. She wore it nearly full time for just under a month while the sores healed. It was taken off for about 2 hours everyday for walks. This thing was crashed into walls, scraped across the concrete patio, bent every which way and subjected to her trying to scratch through the plastic.
The snaps started to loosen up towards the end, but the fact that they survived that long is amazing. If needed again, I could easily replace them with a zip-tie. I used this cone tied to her collar with string and she only got it off twice.
This product is rugged. It survived my 11 month old lab mix and is currently retired to the closet, in case we need it again!
I would recommend this to a friend!

I have a lab-staffy mix who, through previous experiences with cones obtained from the veterinarian, has learned that if she runs into something, she can just keep moving and she will eventually come unhooked from whatever it was she got stuck on. Be it couches, walls, corners, or the backs of mommy's legs. For that last reason alone I was very pleased that this cone had a soft protective covering around the outside edge. It quieted the cone when she scraped against the walls in our hallways, and it hardly hurt at all when she would push past me as I was walking down our very narrow hallway.
That is about the only good thing I have to say about this product.
I had bought this because my rambunctious 'child' had ripped away half of her dew claw while playing fetch a few weeks ago and she wouldn't stop licking at it. She wore this contraption for four days and then when I let her outside one day to go potty I could hear her running into something outside with the cone. When she came back to the back door to be let in, I discovered that the cone had cracked in half vertically down the middle and the only thing holding the two pieces of the cone together was the bias tape around the outside edge.
The cone that we had purchased from the veterinarian last year held up to ten days of her normal activities without issue. This cone was made of much thinner stuff and so it was not as durable.
I'd say if you have a cat or a very small dog, this will probably work fine. But if you have any kind of a muscular dog or a rambunctious dog, or anything bigger than a toy breed, pay 12 bucks and get a higher quality, more durable one from your vet. And wear pants while your dog has it on to protect your legs.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Found something that worked

I am highly appreciative for finding this product. It did EXACTLY what I needed it to do. Fit my dog so that he CANNOT lick his hot spots near his tail. He also has NOT been able to wiggle out of it. AND last but not least, he has finally been able to get some rest and sleep comfortably. As soon as I put it on, it has not come off once. Hopefully his hot spots disappear soon.

LOVE this e-collar, and my dog does not hate it !
It is much cooler than any other I found. My dog is long haired
Not as long and combersome,can navigate house without bumping into things, and eat/drink well.
I attached it to her collar w/string,she had it off in no time.
I bought a 1 inch wide firm /fairly thick collar & attatched it tightly to the e-collar w/plastic ties(like the kind u get w/trash bags, but get better ones like electricial ties @ home depot) . I can easly slip the whole collar/e-collar on and off without undoing anything.
Watch and comfort them at first till they accept the collar.
I also use self adhearing vet tape(cloth like ) and put around leg over to keep her from licking it when e-collar is not on.
