VETERINARY TESTIMONIALS

COMFURT COLLARS ARE A LIFESAVER!  ALTHOUGH TRADITIONAL E-COLLARS ARE NECESSARY IN SOME CASES, THE DESIGN OF THE PLUSHY, COZY COMFURT COLLAR OFFERS A GREAT ALTERNATIVE TO MANY PETS (AND OWNERS) WHO ARE STRESSED OUT BY THE DREADED PLASTIC CONE.  THEY ARE ADJUSTABLE, COME IN MULTIPLE SIZES, AND OUR CLIENTS LOVE THE PRINTS.  WE ALSO FIND THAT THEY HOLD UP BETTER THAN SIMILAR MODELS WE FIND AT THE PET STORES, WE WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND HAVING THEM IN YOUR ARSENAL FOR POST-OPERATIVE CARE!

IN APRIL, 2016, LIVS BEGAN OUR VENTURE WITH COMFURT COLLAR.  SANDI GARFINKEL BROUGHT THIS BRAND NEW PRODUCT TO LIVS AND WANTED OUR FEEDBACK.  GIVEN THE TREMENDOUS PRACTICE WE HAVE. WE AGREED TO DO A "TEST MARKET" BY GIVING THEM OUT TO GET FEEDBACK FROM ALL DIFFERENT CLIENTS.  EACH CLIENT WAS ASKED TO FILL OUT A QUESTIONNAIRE TO SEE WHAT THEY LIKED/DIDN'T LIKE ABOUT THE PRODUCT.

ONCE WE SAW THE RESULTS, WE BEGAN USING THEM AND ACTUALLY USE THEM ON ALMOST EVERY PATIENT HERE.  THERE ARE SOME EXCEPTIONS (AS WITH THE DONUT) WHERE THERE IS NO OTHER OPTON SUCH AS IN MANY EYE CASES.  OUT OPTHAMOLOGIST DOES NOT USE THEM.

OUR TECHS LOVE THEM BECAUSE THEY MAKE IT EASIER TO CARE FOR THE PETS WHILE IN THE HOSPITAL.  IT KEEPS THEM CALMER, LESS STRESSED AND DEFINITELY MORE COMFORTABLE.

THEY ALSO LIKE THE FACT THAT THEY DO NOT NEED TO BLOW THEM UP, AND THEY DON'T/CAN'T DEFLATE.  THE TECHS ALSO LOVE THE LEASH ATTACHMENT BECAUSE IT MAKES FOR A MUCH EASIER DISCHARGE FOR THE PET.

THE SIZING IS MUCH EASIER SINCE THE NECKLINE IS COMPLETELY ADJUSTABLE.  HAVING THE ELASTIC TOGGLE SWITCHES ALLOWS US TO GO UP A SIZE WHEN IN DOUBT TO PROVIDE MORE COVERAGE (BIGGER SIZES PROVIDE MORE COVERAGE) AND STILL HAVE THE PERFECT FIT  THE POCKET TO TUCK IN THE REMAINING ELASTIC AND TOGGLE SWITCHES ARE HELPFUL SO THAT THE PET CAN'T GET TO IT.

FURRY CLIENTS LOVE IT BECAUSE IT IS SOFT AND COMFORTABLE AND DOES NOT BLOCK THEIR VISION.  THEY ARE LESS STRESSED.  THEY CAN MOVE AROUND EASILY AND FREELY.  EVEN WHEN GOING OUTSIDE, THEY ARE ABLE TO SNIFF WITH NO OBSTRUCTION MAKING URINATING AND DEFACATING SO MUCH EASIER FOR THEM.

THE COMFURT COLLAR IS SO SOFT AND COMFY THAT THE PET SLEEPS PERFECTLY AS IT ACTS AS A PILLOW.

THE PARENTS LOVE THEM BECAUSE IT IS LESS STRESSFUL FOR THE PET.  THEY ARE ABLE TO EAT, DRINK AND SLEEP WITH NO PROLEM.  IT IS EASIER WHEN THEY NEED TO GO OUT.  THEY ARE ABLE TO GET IN AND OUT OF THEIR CRATE WITH NO PROBLEM AS WELL.  IT ALSO DOES NOT SCRATCH FURNITURE, WALLS OR BRUISE LEGS.  ALSO, THE COVER BEING WASHABLE IS ALWAYS A HELP JUST IN CASE IT GETS SOILED.  AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST, THE PARENTS LOVE THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE MORE FASHIONABLE AND LESS EMBARRASSING.

WE FIRST TRIED OUT YOUR COMFURT COLLARS WHEN WE FORGOT TO BRING ONE WITH US TO THE ANIMAL HOSPITAL THAT WE ARE AFFILIATED WITH.  THEY WERE NICE ENOUGH TO LEND US ONE.  OUR CLIENT LOVED IT.  THEY SAID IT REMINDED THEM OF THE HEAD PILLOWS THAT YOU WOULD BRING ON AN AIRPLANE.  THE ADJUSTABLE NECKLINE ALLOWS IT IT GET A PERFECT FIR  EACH TIME AND MAKES IT POSSIBLE TO GO UP A SIZE FOR MORE COVERAGE IF/WHEN NECESSARY.  THE COLLARS COME IN SIZES FROM XS TO XXL SO IT IS PERFECT FOR ALL PETS.  IT'S WASHABLE AND COMES IN GREAT PATTERNS.  WE FIND IT LESS STRESSFUL FOR THE PET AS WELL AS THE CLIENTS. THE CLIENTS LOVE THE FACT THAT IT MAKES IT EASIER FOR THEM TO EAT AND DRINK AND THEY DON'T BUMP INTO EVERYTHING.  OVERALL, WE FEEL THAT THIS IS A GREAT PRODUCT AND OUR CLIENTS LOVE THEM.  THANK YOU FROM DR. MURPHT AND THE VISITING VET STAFF AND ALL OF OUR HAPPY FURRY FRIENDS.

WE HAVE BEEN USING THE COMFURT COLLARS FOR OUR HOSPITALIZED DOGS FOR ABOUT SIX MONTHS AND THEIR INNOVATIVE FEATURES SET THEM FAR APART FROM TRADITIONAL CONES.  WE LOVE THE COMFURT COLLARS AND SO DO OUR CLIENTS AND THEIR DOGS.  THEY'RE EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE DUE TO THE ADJUSTABLE NECKLINE WHICH ENSURES A PERFECT FIT, AND WE DO SEE A DIFFERENCE IN THE DOG'S BEHAVIOR WHEN IT COMES TO WEARING THEM.  A LOT OF DOGS GET STRESSED OUT WEARING TRADITIONAL CONES BECAUSE THEY LIMIT VISIBILITY AND BUMP INTO THINGS.  WITH THESE COLLARS, DOGS CAN SEE BETTER AND THEIR ROUND SHAPE PREVENTS THEM FROM BUMPING INTO THINGS.  WHILE WEARING THEM, DOGS CAN EAT, DRINK AND TAKE A NICE NAP ON A SOFT, STUFFED PILLOW RATHER THAN AN AIR-FILLED ONE.  BEST OF ALL, WHEN IT IS TIME FOR THE PETS GO HOME, THE LEASH ATTACHMENT MAKES IT EASY FOR WALKING THEM.  WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THESE COLLARS AND ARE SURE YOU WILL LIKE THEM AS MUCH AS WE DO.

THE COMFURT COLLARS ARE SUPER EASY TO USE AND THEY ARE EXTREMELY SOFT AND COMFORTABLE FOR CATS AND DOGS.  WE THINK THE LEASH ATTACHMENT IS VERY HELPFUL IN ORDER TO WALK THE PETS AND IT ALSO HAS THE POCKET IN ORDER TO STORE THE LEASH ATTACHMENT (WHICH IS VERY CONVENIENT FOR THE OWNERS).  THE CATS SEEM TO BE MORE COMFORTABLE IN THE COMFURT COLLAR VERSUS THE HARD PLASTIC E-COLLARS THAT WE HAVE USED IN THE PAST. IT IS EASIER FOR THE PETS TO SEE AND EAT WITH THESE VERSUS THE PLASTIC ONES.

WE HATE SEEING OUR PATIENTS GO HOME WEARING THE "CONE OF SHAME" WHICH IS WHY WE LOVE COMFURT COLLARS!  BLOW UP COLLARS CAN DEFLATE AND PLASTIC COLLARS ARE UNCOMFORTABLE BUT COMFURT COLLARS ARE SO COZY THEY CAN LITERALLY BE USED FOR PILLOWS.  THE RANGE OF SIZES, ADJUSTABLE NECKLINE, AND HIDDEN TOGGLE SWITCHES ALLOW US TO GET A PERFECT FIT EVERY TIME WHILE ENSURING OUT PATIENTS CANNOT SCRATCH OR BITE AT THE SURGICAL SITE OR HEALING WOUNDS.  WE DO EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO ENSURE OUT PATIENTS ARE HEALTHY AND COMFORTABLE WHICH IS WHY WE USE AND RECOMMEND COMFURT COLLARS TO OUR PATIENTS.

WE HAVE BEEN USING COMFURT COLLARS SINCE JUNE 2018.  THE SHIPPING IS VERY QUICK AND THE CUSTOMER SERVICE IS AMAZING.  OUR CLIENTS AND PATIENTS HAVE BEEN MORE THAN HAPPY WITH THEM DUE TO COMFORT AND CONVENIENCE.  PATIENTS OBJECT LESS TO THESE COLLARS OVER THE PLASTIC E-COLLARS AND TEND TO USE THEM AS PILLOWS.  IT IS ALSO EASIER FOR PETS TO EAT AND DRINK WITH THEM.  CLIENTS ARE HAPPY THEY DON'T HAVE TO BLOW UP THE COLLAR AND ALSO THE FACT THE PETS CANNOT POP THEM, SO THEY ARE EXTREMELY GRATEFUL THAT THEY LAST LONGER.  MORE CLIENT PERKS INCLUDE THAT THE COVER IS MACHINE WASHABLE AND ALSO LESS PAINFUL ON THE BACK OF THE KNEE CAPS.

 WE AT FLOWERS MILL VETERINARY HOSPITAL STARTED CARRYING AND RECOMMENDING COMFURT COLLARS AFTER SEEING A DEMONSTRATION AT THE NEW YORK VET SHOW LAST YEAR.  THEY ARE MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE FOR THE PE4T THAN THE TRADITIONAL E-COLLAR WHICH HAS LEAD TO BETTER COMPLIANCES BY THE CLIENT WHICH WE ALL KNOW CAN BE A CHALLENGE.  THEY ARE GREAT FOR  ALL SHAPES AND SIZES OF PATIENTS.  THE COLLARS COME IN A VARIETY OF SIZES, BUT THE ADJUSTABLE NECKLINE HELPS US TO FIT THOSE IN-BETWEEN SIZES AS WELL.  THE STUFFING IS EXTREMELY SOFT AND THERE IS NO WORRY ABOUT THE COLLARS DEFLATING OR LOSING AIR.  IN ADDITION, THE STYLISH COVERS IN LEOPARD SPOTS OR ZEBRA STRIPES CAN BE WASHED FOR LONG TERM USE OR REUSE AT A LATER DATE.  THESE COLLARS CAN BE WORN WITHOUTANY INCONVENIENCE TO THE PET OR THEIR OWNER.  BEING CRASHED INTO OR HAVING FURNITURE AND WALLS MARRED BY PLASTIC E-COLLARS CAN BE A THING OF THE PAST FOR YOUR CLIENTS IF YOU RECOMMEND COMFURT COLLARS FOR THEIR PETS.  IN ADDITION, DEALING WITH SANDI AND THE COMFURT COLLAR CREW HAS BEEN A PLEASURE.

I HAVE BEEN DISPENSING COMFURT COLLARS FROM THEIR INCEPTION.  CLIENTS LOVE THEM.  THEY ARE COMFORTABLE FOR THEIR FUR BABIES YET ARE PROTECTIVE ENOUGH FOR MOST SURGERIES.  I DON'T GET THE COMPLAINTS ANYMORE ABOUT THE FUR BABY SLAMMING INTO FURNITURE AND LEGS.  THE DOGS ACTUALLY SEEM TO THINK  THEY ARE PORTABLE PILLOWS AND ENJOY SLEEPING WITH THEM.  I USE TO HAVE DOGS REFUSE TO LAY  DOWN WEARING THE STANDARD ELIZABETHAN COLLARS.  SANDI HAS BEEN GREAT AND ALWAYS GIVES AMAZING CUSTOMER SERVICE BESIDES.  I THINK CLIENTS ARE USING THEM AT THE AIRPORTS AFTER THE SURGERY SITE IS HEALED :)

I HAD THE PLEASURE OF MEETING SANDI GARFINKEL WHEN SHE CAME TO CAMP HAPPY TAILS, NYC RESCUE IN 2016 TO DONATE SOME OF HER COMFURT COLLARS TO OUR RESCUED PUPS AND TO SHOW ME HOW TO USE THEM CORRECTLY.  SINCE THEN WE HAVE USED THEM FOR MANY OF OUR RESCUED CAMPERS OF VARIOUS SIZES, AGES AND BREEDS.  THE COMFURT COLLAR DIFFERENT SIZES AND ADJUSTABLE ELASTICIZED NECKLINE ALLOWS A PERFECT FIT FOR ANY CAMPER AND WE CAN EVEN GO UP A SIZE FOR MORE COVERAGE IF NEEDED.  IT'S SO MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE THAN THOSE PLASTIC CONES OF SHAME WHICH TEND TO SCRATCH AND BRUISE OUR LEGS OR GET STUCK ON THE SIDES OF THE CRATES AND BREAK, OFTEN SCARING THEMSELVES OR OTHER CAMPERS.

WITH THE COMFURT COLLAR, OUR CAMPERS ARE ABLE TO PLAY, REST, RELAX AND EAT WITHOUT THE STRESS AND DISCOMFORT OF THE BIG PLASTIC CONE GETTING IN THE WAY OR MAKING A MESS.  IT'S EVEN A COMFY PILLOW WHEN THEY ARE SLEEPING.

THE COMFURT COLLAR IS STUFFED, NOT AIR-FILLED, SO WE DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT IT DEFLATING OVER TIME AND WHEN THE COVER GETS SOILED WE CAN REMOVE IT AND THROW IT IN THE WASH!  WHEN OUR INJURED CAMPERS ARE ABLE TO REST, RELAX AND SLEEP COMFORTABLY, THEY HEAL AND RECOVER FASTER.  THAT'S WHY CAMP HAPPY TAILS NYC RESCUE LOVES COMFURT COLLAR!
