We have Henry the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel for the day and he's a cone head. He got an infected nail and this cone collar keeps him from licking the boo boo. It doesn't bother him one bit. You should have seen Tabitha (the cat) trying to figure out what he had on his head. It was hilarious. I gave him a Canine Cottage Special for breakfast and once again, he was a member of the clean plate club. I love to see dogs eat with gusto.
