There was a day when the only thing your dog could wear after surgery or an injury was the traditional clear plastic cone. Since the evolution of the large Elizabethan e-collar for dogs, many jokes, costumes and even funny videos have surfaced as a result. Did you see anyone wearing a collar as a costume this year? But now there are many options for your pet to get through stressful situations like surgeries or open wounds, like Calm Paws collars.

What makes Calm Paws collars different?

Calm Paws collars not only offer ways to keep your pets from reaching open wounds, rashes or other areas you don’t want them to, they also have a calming component while wearing the collar. Each collar can be paired with a, lavender and valerian for dogs or mint for cats, infused patch or disk that offers calming support with essential oils. Simply attach the safe and natural heart-shaped patch or disk to the collar that is right for your dog or cat.
