Collar damage to the dog

The dog’s neck is made up of sensitive and physiologically important organs that are responsible for the dog’s overall physical condition. For example, the thyroid gland is located in the dog’s neck, below the larynx. Just one jerk of the collar can cause serious damage to your pet’s health.

When we use a collar in combination with a leash, we put a lot of physical strain on the animal’s neck. Dogs have a high pain threshold, which means that you won’t be able to quickly identify that the collar is causing your dog pain.

The most commonly cited main argument in favour of a collar is that the dog has a strong and sturdy neck. This was thought to be the difference between a dog’s neck and that of a human. In fact, the necks of all animals, including members of the dog family, are physiologically identical to those of Homo Sapiens.

Health risks of using a collar on a dog

Pulling the leash attached to the collar puts pressure on the neck and dogs have a significant increase in blood pressure in the brain. At the same time, blood flow to the brain decreases and intraocular pressure increases, which can lead to poor eye health and glaucoma.

In addition to problems with the eyes, there can be problems with the ears, as well as with the thyroid gland. Tension on the leash restricts blood and lymphatic flow, the collar puts pressure on the neck at the thyroid gland, inflammation occurs and gypothyroiditis develops.

Sudden and strong pulling of the leash and strangulation of the neck may lead to narrowing of the spinal canal and damage to the spinal cord. In addition, compression of nerve fibres may occur, causing the animal to lick its legs without being aware of its senses. This behaviour is often attributed to allergies, ignoring neck injuries.

Dogs are most affected by special collars. Improper use of choke collars can lead to fainting, skin lesions around the neck, tracheal injuries, dislocation of the cervical vertebrae, partial or total strangulation. In addition to physical damage, psychological damage is possiblegood luck. For example, if the dog feels strangled every time the owner pulls on the leash, it will lose trust in the owner and become aggressive out of fear.

Tight collars to correct behaviour are dangerous. Inexperienced owners lead to spines or metal protrusions on the inside of the leash digging into the skin, puncturing or tearing it, causing scarring or serious wounds, and the fur around the neck to shift. In addition, the animal feels pain.

Dogs are often mutilated with electric collars. Animals suffer physical pain and various degrees of burns. Some dogs develop arrhythmia, others develop an increased level of anxiety, and anxiety gradually develops into aggression. Those intending to use an electric collar must understand the sensitivity of its use and also take into account the pain sensitivity of the dog in question.

Regardless of the type of collar, if the collar is tightly fitted to the neck it increases the risk of skin trauma, reddening of the skin due to friction, shedding of the coat, irritation andThe resulting wound can become infected, which can lead to various complications.

If the collar is harmful to dogs, why do they keep pulling on it?

The anatomy of humans and dogs is almost identical, but the mental abilities are different. It is clear to us that if we are attracted to a force, we need to stop and find out what it is. Dogs don’t understand this, they panic at the pain in their necks. Pain in the neck does not stop a dog from pulling on the lead, even if he is very excited, because of fear of his master’s rudeness, because of the excess energy he has stored up.

Alternative – Braces for Dog

Braces can help to avoid many of the problems associated with the anvil. All dog owners, especially those of brachycephalic breeds (pug, French bulldog, boxer, Boston terrier), should choose this accessory. Brachycephalic breeds have heavy breathing and do not require the additional compression of a neck collar. They are not recommended for pets with thin necks (greyhounds) or long bodies (dachshunds),
