As an extension of the veterinarian-recommended Comfy Cone, All Four Paws designed the Comfy Wrap to further address recovery, protection and the rehabilitation needs of animals. The Comfy Wrap, which comes in seven sizes, surrounds the pet’s torso and up through the chest preventing animals from licking, chewing or scratching. A handle helps dog owners in assisting with the animal’s mobility issues, and inside pockets can hold cooling or warming packs.
High-Tech Pet Door
With a pet door owners can control with an app, Sure Flap is taking remote access to a whole new level. The Microchip Pet Door Connect reads the microchip or RFID-collar tag off the resident pet(s), and denies entrance to unwanted visitors. Pet parents can login to the Sure Petcare app to track habits and behavior and also to place a “curfew” by locking the door at night.
