Video Tech Tip: E-Collar Attachment Alternative

    Our practice had been using 2-inch gauze to tie e-collars around patients' necks, but the gauze didn't last long. When a client had to have an e-collar stay on her dog for 2 weeks, she used a bandana as an alternative. Our new e-collar "tie" consists of strips of material we cut off the bandanas we currently use for boarding or bathed dogs. Using pinking shears will delay any fraying of the material and a variety of fabric patterns can be used.
