This product is very soft and useful when your dog has surgery. Keeps your fur baby from licking their wounds.your dog will thank you from having the hard plastic that is uncomfortable!!! You furbaby will be more comfortable lying down after surgery so they can rest and heal quickly. Well made product with Velcro to keep the cone around them. My dogs don' like the plastic cone but Don't mind wearing this cone!!! My furbaby doesn' even try to take this cone off.
