  • Waterproof breathable fabric
  • Can be worn before and after surgery
  • Hand washable

Recommendations for use:
  • Not suited for hounds or bulldogs. Long hound necks don’t allow the collar to stay in place, short thick Bulldog necks won’t allow for a proper fit
  • Size XXS is suitable for Cats.  When used for Cats the collar is used with the longest part at the front under the neck.
  • Collar should be securely tightened around the neck to keep it from turning
  • A harness is advised to walk a dog whilst wearing the neck brace
  • Over a 24 hr period, the brace should be removed for 1-2 hrs

MEASUREMENTS OF THE BRACE ITSELF

The BT dog Neck brace is usually not suited for hounds and bulldogs.
Long necks do not allow the collar to stay in place so the brace will slide.
Short necks can be too small for the width (B) of the neck brace.
Please ensure that the dimensions of the brace below will suit your dog before ordering.

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR USE

  • For proper use, it is essential that the collar be tightened securely around the neck, to keep it from turning.
  • While wearing the rigid collar, the dog can be taken for walks using either the collar or a harness.
  • Over a 24-hour period, remove the collar for 1 to 2 hours.

As your pet has the potential to damage the brace or injured themselves, we recommend supervision of your dog at all time when wearing the brace.
