Dr. Ashley recently contributed to an online article that discusses alternative dog cones that actually work!
In the canine world, it’s often quite easy to tell when a dog has recently had surgery, or is dealing with some form of skin irritation. The plastic cone around their head is a dead giveaway.
But while the cone is a nuisance for dogs—and a bit funny looking to pet parents—it actually serves an important purpose.
If your pup is miserable and a traditional e-collar isn’t working, there are some alternatives that you can consider. Let’s dive into the world of dog cones to see why they are sometimes necessary and explore different options for our fussy canine companions.
Whether you’ve tried a traditional dog cone collar and it didn’t work, or you’re simply interested in avoiding issues that might crop up with this type of collar in the first place, there are some alternatives.

If the e-collar provided by your vet isn’t working, here are some store-bought dog cone alternatives to try at home. Just make sure to discuss these options with your veterinarian prior to using one with your dog.
