The Balto® Neck Eco is a comfortable alternative to the traditional Elizabethan e-collar. Playfully known as the “cone of shame.” This breathable compression neck brace, made with non-neoprene material, prevents the extension of the neck to stop self-harming behaviors. This neck brace is not for cervical support. This brace can be worn alongside a pet’s harness without discomfort while maintaining an active lifestyle. The Eco brace is an excellent option for dogs in need of protection from biting, licking, or scratching wounds, allergies, or healing sites.

Brace Applications:
  • Can be used in coordination with orthopedic bracing while training pets to adjust to their bracing; preventing damage to the brace or further injury.
  • Protection self-harming behaviors like biting, licking or scratch at wounds
  • Wound management; protection of bandages from biting, licking, gravity and friction
Brace Features:
  • One wide collar that can be placed on two different ways to best provide body-only coverage. The extended side can support below the neck, or in the opposite position, down the spine to help support flexion/extension of the neck
  • Adjustable straps ensure an excellent fit

Comes in sizes xx-small through x-large. Not recommended for sighthounds and bulldogs due to anatomical differences. To find the best size for your pet, visit the sizing chart here.

Handwashable
Vet approved and preferred
Non-neoprene

All Balto® braces are made from high-quality materials, not neoprene, which is known to: collect bacteria, provide inadequate support, and wear down quickly. A variety of sizes ensure a secure fit. No pinching straps.

Recommended for all ages unless otherwise advised by veterinarians. Apply brace for balanced increments of time, if appropriate, for pets under the age of 2 to prevent possible growth disturbances.

Maintenance & Repair

A clean brace not only prevents infections, irritation, and a stinky smell; but it also allows your brace to last longer. To help support the longevity of your bracing device, here are some of our tips on how to properly clean your orthopedic bracing:

  1. Remove as much hair as possible from any Velcro® frequently to prevent compaction.
  2. Use lint roller or lightly adhesive tape to remove hair from the material of the brace.
  3. By hand, use warm water and a gentle cleansing soap to remove any stains and odors.
  4. Rinse soap thoroughly from the brace
  5. Hang to dry. Once the brace is completely dry, it is ready for use!

The best collar

My dog has a tumor above her neck .. she always scratches it to open it .. we use elastic dog wrap, gauze, anything to cover it but she still manages to open it .. this is the only thing that prevents her from opening her tumor

Has helped our pup a lot

Our Heeler, who loves to jump and catch frisbees, sprained his neck badly and couldn't move from whiplash. Our vet thought he might need surgery, but recommended trying a brace first. The Balto has been a life saver. He asks for it when going out to play! He is able to still run and jump, but it restrains him from twisting his neck. It's held up very well after 3 months of heavy daily use.

Great results and no cone of shame!

Much better tolerated than any Elizabethan collar iteration I've used in the last 40 years of practice. My own lab was my first trial, and she did brilliantly!
