ABOUT DOG CONES
Whether it's because your dog is spayed or injured, most dogs will wear a dog cone at some point in their lives. While dogs do not like to wear doggy cone collars, they are essential for wound care in dogs. If you need to prevent your pooch from licking a wound, you need to put a cone on him.
