ProCollar Premium Inflatable Protective Collar
The ProCollar is a great alternative to the traditional E-Collar, providing less stress for a quicker healing time! The ProCollar is very well tolerated by dogs and cats because it does not interfere with their vision. Pets wearing the ProCollar are able to eat, sleep and play at ease while staying protected. It is made of a vinyl inner bladder that is inflated through a two-way air valve, much like a beach ball. Once inflated, the size and thickness of the ProCollar function as a soft deterrent. The inner bladder is protected by a durable and comfortable canvas jacket to resist against bites and scratches. The ProCollar is held in place by inserting the pet's everyday collar through the ProCollar’s three inner rings. The Velcro strap should be placed at the back of the neck and then adjusted for a custom fit. For proper sizing, measure your pet's neck.
For breeds with longer limbs or breeds in between sizes, always size up!
Always monitor a pet post-surgery to ensure collar is working properly. Some pets may be able to maneuver around any collar.
Here are some examples of breeds with ProCollar sizing:
- X-Small: Chihuahuas and Toy-like breeds, cats
- Small: Yorkie, Maltese-like breeds
- Medium: Boston Terrier, Beagle-like breeds
- Large: Boxer, Australian Shepherd-like breeds
- X-Large: Labrador, Golden Retriever-like breeds
- XX-Large: German Shepherd, Mastiff-like breeds
Works great for cats!

Previous reviews have commented on the lack of resilience of this product but I purchased the small for my larger male cat and it works great! I think this product works best for smaller/weaker animals as it is inflatable and can definitely tear or pop with enough pressure. My cat is comfortable and doesn't seem to notice it anymore. As a bonus, it look ridiculous on him. (see picture).
Do not buy.

I bought two of these. Both will not hold air. Even if they did, they would not keep my dog from chewing on himself. Do not waste your money.
Worked until it didn't

This was a great solution in the first few days after my dog's crucial ligament surgery. But by day 7 (with another 7 to go before staple removal), she felt well enough to attempt to lick her incision. The ProCollar wasn't an obstacle so much as a minor inconvenience. She had no trouble reaching her knee, so it's back to the e-collar (sorry, pup).
