Elizabethan Collars (E-Collars) are one of the most effective behavioral based treatments for injuries and wounds.
E-collars are difficult for dogs to wear; however, it is often a necessity in allowing their injuries to heal. Animals are prone to nursing their injuries through licking, which can be very counter intuitive to the healing process.
These collars come in a wide variety of options, but I’ve found that the standard plastic cones secured to the collar with rolled gauze are the most affective in completely disallowing licking of injuries.
