Spencer is smart and knows how to get what he wants. Earlier today he was making a fuss so I peeked in on him he had his bottom incisors buried in the velcro so I undid the collar (which is probably what he wanted)and he was able to get them out. A few hours ago he was moving around in his pouch fussing and sure enough he had those incisors stuck into the velcro again. Back to the staple collar. He has been wearing this collar for awhile now and has gained 20 grams so there is a little gap between the plastic and the collar of velcro. Just wanted to let all know of the potential hazard!

When I used one on Ace I put extra moleskin on the edge around the neck that covered the edge of the velcro. Maybe that's what kept him from doing the same thing. dunno

I will take pics of what I am saying if I am not painting a clear picture, hes fat(again) theres a sliver pie peice gap of velcro not covered and mid way up is where he is burying his bottom incisors in the thick part of the velcro getting stuck. not a pretty sight! If There is a problem with something Spencer is going to find it!!

So...which e-collar to y'all prefer? I have several neuters lined up and need some on hand, plus I just need some for emergencies (knock on wood).

I use a satalite style and use electrical tape to hold it in place. Unlike medical tape, the electrical tape is slick so the gliders don't get their nails caught on it trying to get the collar off. Also, it is easy to use, sticks very well yet comes off easy too.
