Idea Exchange: Keep cleanup simple with an E-collar

Using an ultrasonic scaler during dental procedures can get messy, especially with multiple extractions. To make patient cleanup quicker and easier, we place an Elizabethan collar on the patient, with the wider, more open end covering the animal's shoulders and neck. The collar protects the patient from getting water, blood, or polish on its fur, making cleanup a snap. If you clean and dry the collar once the dental procedure is done, you can use it multiple times.
