We used this to keep our cat from cleaning himself.
He had a peptic ulcer and his swallowing of fur, while cleaning, was damaging the ulcer and preventing healing.

He initially had a standard, rigid, elizabethan collar (e-collar) from the vet, but it was horrible.
While wearing the rigid collar, he was disoriented, could barely walk around, could barely sleep and was becoming very depressed.
This Trimline collar made a HUGE difference.

Because this Trimline collar is so flexible, it will not work for every situation.
If you're not sure if it will work for you, I strongly recommend that you buy it to test it out, because, if it does work, your pet will be so much happier.

When I bought this collar I also bought a Comfy Cone just in case I ended up needing a more rigid cone (I bought a Small and a X-Small -- the X-Small turned out to be too small, so if you're only going to buy one size for your cat, get the Small, not the X-Small).
I'm very pleased with the Comfy Cone.
I would imagine that it would work for pretty much any situation.
It's less comfortable than the Trimline but it's far more comfortable than a standard plastic cone.

If you're able to use the Trimline, make sure you do so, because it's much more comfortable than the Comfy Cone and your pet will love you for it.
But if you can't use the Trimline because it's too thin and flexible, then use the Comfy Cone.
Just make sure you never use a plastic cone ... they're simply cruel.

As far as durability goes ... the Trimline is very durable for such a light, flexible material.
Our cat is big, strong and lives to clean himself so he has actually bitten many holes through the Trimline while trying to clean.
But it wasn't easy for him to bite through and the Trimline is still holding together great with the holes in it.
Keep in mind that most cats aren't likely to bite holes in it -- our cat's pretty unusual.

So, in conclusion, my recommendation is that you buy a Trimline collar and also buy a Comfy Cone, just in case the Trimline turns out to be too light and flexible for your situation.
If you're really low on cash and can't get both, then just get the Comfy Cone because it will almost definitely work for any situation in which a cone is needed.
Just keep in mind that the Trimline is much more comfortable, so you should really try to get both, even if you have to dig for loose change in the couch or panhandle on the conrer :-)

Also, if you have to leave your pet at the vet, make sure they use your cone and not their cruel, rigid garbage.

    Comments about Trimline Veterinary Soft Recovery Dog Collar:

    My dog had cancer surgery on her front elbow that has not healed in over a year, since she licks it and makes it bleed. The collar keeps her from reaching the elbow and it is now healing. I am about to put the fourth collar on her since the collar gets torn and ugly. A stronger material might be nice. It is very comfortable for her and it is doing the job. She wears it inverted so that it looks like a cape. It is not ugly and people think that it has many purposes such as a rain coat, tutu, coat for warmth. They frequently smile as she goes by. I will keep buying collars until she is completely healed.

        Comments about Trimline Veterinary Soft Recovery Dog Collar:

        Love this product. Wish all vets used it...the stiff plastic collars seem cruel and embarrass the dogs.
        Only problem is that this is my second collar (in maybe one year) from you. She has pretty much torn into the first layer of collar on outside from her allergy scratching.
        I feel safe in leaving my dog in this collar when I am not home during her high allergy periods.

            Comments about Trimline Veterinary Soft Recovery Dog Collar:

            This E-collar is not as durable as the rigid ones, but our dog would not tolerate the rigid type. She can still reach some parts of her body to chew, and even chews through the E-collar.She has been unable to chew all the way through the collar. The one placed on her by the vet, lasted about three weeks before she softened it up enough to reach the area we are trying to protect. For us, this product is our best solution which we hope will be short term. I ordered 2 of these because it was the best price I could find online. I will reorder as soon as she has sufficiently mutilated them. None of the local vets carry this particuluar product, so PetFood Direct was the best source of this product.
