Spencer is smart and knows how to get what he wants. Earlier today he was making a fuss so I peeked in on him he had his bottom incisors buried in the velcro so I undid the collar (which is probably what he wanted)and he was able to get them out. A few hours ago he was moving around in his pouch fussing and sure enough he had those incisors stuck into the velcro again. Back to the staple collar. He has been wearing this collar for awhile now and has gained 20 grams so there is a little gap between the plastic and the collar of velcro. Just wanted to let all know of the potential hazard!

When I used one on Ace I put extra moleskin on the edge around the neck that covered the edge of the velcro. Maybe that's what kept him from doing the same thing. dunno

I use a satalite style and use electrical tape to hold it in place. Unlike medical tape, the electrical tape is slick so the gliders don't get their nails caught on it trying to get the collar off. Also, it is easy to use, sticks very well yet comes off easy too.

Judge not until you have walked in their shoes and lived their lives. What you see online is only part of the story.

I could have missed the pain
But I'd of had to miss the dance


The soul would have no rainbow if the eyes had no tears.
