We used this collar for when our nervous cocker spaniel was spayed. It was excellent for her as it did not obscure her vision, and she wore it happily for the 10 days required. It is lightweight and quick drying, and she could sleep comfortably, eat, sniff etc. A huge improvement on the usual 'cone' type collar.

The best. Outside material VERY resistent (use it for our rottweilers and they even tear it and still no schratches). If inside breaks you can stuff the collar with simple lightweight cushion filler. Be aware that this collar does not protect from biting feet or scratching head, but it is the best for tummies, dorsal injury, necks, hips etc.
Our dog has used this collar for a couple of different injuries and it is much kinder than the traditional cone-type collar. It lets him sleep comfortably, doesn't obscure vision and can't be bashed against furniture, doorways etc. it isn't suitable for all types of injury however, so best to supervise first use.
