PRLog - March 3, 2011 - BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Last year, American pet owners spent more than $12 billion on veterinary care for their cats and dogs. Unfortunately, many pets left the vet clinics wearing uncomfortable plastic collar while their wounds and stitches healed, slowly. These hard plastic cone-shaped collars make simple actions such as eating, drinking, sleeping and even walking up and down stairs difficult and uncomfortable. And, owners cite frustration in properly fitting these collars on their pets and the damage rendered by these hard plastic on walls and furniture as their pets try to navigate in their homes without peripheral vision.

“When dogs wear the Trimline Veterinary Recovery Collar to heal after an injury or surgery they are more comfortable and relaxed, which in turn makes their parents happier and we see a higher user compliance,”
Arnold Plotnick, DVM, a veterinarian who operates Manhattan Cat Specialists in New York City, recommends Trimline over traditional hard plastic collars. Board certified in internal medicine and operating a cat-only practice, Dr. Plotnick says the Trimline‘s design prevents pets from reaching their wounds, stitches or sore spots to permit complete healing.
“This Trimline collar is a collar I would prefer to use because it is soft , more comfortable and can be inverted so cats can have a little more peripheral vision without their whiskers touching the collar,” adds Dr. Plotnick.
The Trimline collar is available in five different sizes and features a drawstring neckline to ensure a comfortable fit for any pet. The Trimline Veterinary Recovery Collar is available at all distributors. Just ask for the blue, soft collar and help ease your pet’s pain and hasten his recovery. Learn more at www.trimlineinc.com.
