FAQs about Surgi Snuggly — the comfy, humane alternative to an e-collar for dogs
Since the 2012 release of Surgi Snuggly to the pet and veterinarian market, we’ve received an enthusiastic response as well as a number of questions.
We knew we had a great thing on our hands when people kept saying, “I hate that e-collar for dogs! Thank you for creating a soft, comfortable alternative.”
But since it IS a new concept to ease post-surgery care and many other conditions with a warm, stretchy wrap, we’re happy to provide answers to common questions. If your question isn’t answered here, we invite you to see How it Works.
In January 2009, Dr. Paul O. Williams DVM, a veterinarian of over 40 years — along with his wife Tonua — realized that E-Collars for dogs (also known as “The Dog Cone of Shame”) were not supporting their pup Hannah’s surgery recovery. So they took matters into their own hands and came up with a compassionate solution. Read the entire story.
E-Collars for dogs (dog Elizabethan collars) started out as a large plastic dog cone that goes over the neck to keep your dog away from the surgical area, skin issue, etc. Later came the soft e-collar, but it isn’t much better. Unfortunately, both collars prevent dogs from doing normal activities. With the awkward cone around their heads, dogs usually don’t eat, they don’t drink, and they certainly can’t rest or sleep very easily. In contrast, Surgi Snuggly is a soft, stretchy and comforting body wrap that doesn’t restrict the dog’s movement or normal activities. Instead, it allows your dog to go about his/her daily routines, including eating, sleeping, going to potty and of course, snuggling! See How It Works.
The multi-purpose Surgi Snuggly is being hailed as a wonderful solution to ease treatment and recovery of all kinds of conditions, including: • Post surgery care • Dog bite wound care and other wound care • Hotspots and other skin ailments • Incontinence (it comfortably holds dog pee pads and diapers in place) • Senior dog ailments • Anxiety behavior in your dog Visit our How It Works page for more information.
Surgi~Snuggly ™ Success Stories
LOVE THE SURGI SNUGGLY!
I tried lots of products and ideas to try to keep a diaper on my aging English Bulldog. Nothing worked until I found the Surgi Snuggly. And she looks really cute wearing it!
Mom Of Senior Pet
I recently purchased the Surgi Snuggly, Wonder Suit to keep my dog's diaper from falling off. It works great! And my dog doesn't mind having it on. She is 14 and I think it eases her anxiety. I highly recommend it!
An Amazing Product
I was tired of having to readjust my dogs diaper, so I purchased this. The stretchy material keeps my dogs diaper in place. Keep in mind that this is made out of lycra, so it's not absorbent. I plan on buying more, so I can change them out when washing them.
So Much Better Than A Cone
Our 6-month-old Goldendoodle just got spayed. We hated the thought of using a cone so we ordered the snuggly. It has been perfect for her. She has not been stressed at all with wearing it.
It Works Great Overnight
No more wee wee pads or messes on my floors! Keeps my incontinent 15 year old collie mix from accidentally peeing on the floors. I've washed it twice..fits great and kept its shape. I use two adult incontinence pads and it works great overnight!
