“E” Tube protective collar.Designed to be a sensible solution to everyday patient management of an esophagostomy tube (e-tube) in the cat and dog. The adjustable collar fits securely around the animal's neck, with a hole for the tube and a Velcro™ strap to secure it when it's not in use. Circular cotton pads are supplied to place between the collar and the skin, protecting the wound to absorb drainage from below and protect from contaminants from above. It eliminates the need for owners to attempt to learn bandaging techniques.
Machine washable collars provide superior cleanliness of site
Ease of application and removal
Lowered risk of tube removal by animal
Decreased risk of wound trauma (animals scratch at site less; less chance that owners will bandage too tightly and restrict breathing)
Can leave in place for Radiographs, MRI, chemotherapy, other procedures
