Collar offered in 4 different size options for dogs or cats. Adjust the air in the inflation bladder inside the collar to control tightness. Outer cloth is separate from the air bladder, so the cloth can be washed. Pet's collar attaches to this collar for a secure fit.
A persistent pet will probably be able to work around this collar, as it's not as big as the plastic cones.
With the adjustable strap on the outside, you can make the collar as tight or as loose as you want. Inflatable bladder inside can be removed, allowing the outer cloth to be washed. This recovery collar attaches to the animal's regular collar to fit securely.
Doesn't extend as far from the animal's body as a plastic cone, so the pet may be able to reach stitches.
Much smaller than the traditional plastic cones you'll receive at the vet's office, which is nice for small animals. Consists of a soft foam material that's more comfortable than a traditional cone. Easy-to-clean materials in the collar.
Too small to prevent a persistent pet from licking its stitches. Heavier than it looks.
Surface of the collar is water resistant and easy to wipe clean. Available in multiple sizes and 2 colors to find just the right match for your pet. Includes an optional plastic shell when you want to give the collar a bit of extra stiffness.
Bulkier material than some other options. Lots of hook-and-loop straps that may end up getting in the way.
Offered in 2 sizes and 3 colors to match your pet's needs. Very lightweight design, yet it has a stiffness to it not found with foam collars. Uses an easy-to-use snap enclosure to keep the recovery collar in place as the pet moves.
Only made for small pets like cats, small dogs, and rabbits. Not as comfortable as some other options.

Pet recovery collars aim to help animals stop scratching or biting at wounds or stitches after surgery. These collars use materials that extend away from the neck of the pet. This extra material blocks the animal’s mouth from reaching other areas of its body. You’ll often see veterinarian offices sending large plastic recovery collars, or cones, home with the animal after surgery. If these collars are too bulky, you can purchase smaller recovery collars made from softer materials. Pet recovery collars are available as an inflatable bladder inside cloth, as a vinyl-covered foam, or as a clear plastic with fabric edges. The collars appear in different sizes, ensuring they’ll fit your pet properly. Many recovery collars attach to the pet’s normal collar to keep the recovery collar in place.
