Tomokee:2 Elizabethan collars: 1

Tomokee recently developed a small irritation on his skin (a "hot spot") that he was licking a bit too much. The vet sold us an Elizabethan collar, which stayed on him for no more than about 20 minutes before he rammed it into things and broke it. Tomokee:1, Collars:0.

So, off to the local Petco I go, and I got another collar. The store didn't have any of these soft foam ones I was hoping for, but this one is good enough for now. It's softer than the first one, and also more shallow, so that Tomokee can still play ball. He's resting comfortably, as you can see. Tomokee: 1, Collars: 1.

However, Tomokee still runs into things while wearing it, and in this case, the collar did not break, but he managed to shear off the attachment for the over-the-door shoe rack. Tomokee:2, collars: 1.
