I created the Surgi Snuggly because I didnt want to put that hard, plastic, scary E Collar on my puppy after her surgery! Just like other pet owners I felt terrible for my puppy and I didnt want to make her uncomfortable after her hard day of surgery. So that very night my husband, Dr. Paul Williams,DVM and I created the first Surgi Snuggly! That was in Jan. 09 and here I am almost 3 years later telling the world that a wonderful E Collar alternative has arrived!
