Goodbye, Cone of Shame — Hello, Therapeutic Leggings for Dogs

A thoughtful, creative invention prevents injured dogs from bothering leg wounds.

If you seek innovative alternatives to the “cone of shame,” we’ve found one that’s got legs: H4Legs, to be precise, which is the name of a company that’s invented H-Leggings, a cool, new, patent-pending product made of breathable, custom-knit, stretch nylon.

The invention was inspired by a handsome German Shorthaired Pointer named Harley, who’s the H in H-Leggings. This sweet dog, who happens to be the model on the product box, suffers from severe food and environmental allergies, with all the self-licking and –biting those conditions sadly bring (especially when the seasons change).

H-leggings brought Harley relief and comfort, and might do the same for your dog. They’re a protective barrier for canine skin that’s been irritated by licking and biting, and they may also be worn over a vet-approved wound dressing or cast. Designed to be worn on both forelegs, even if only one limb is injured, the leggings help balance and distract the dog from the injury – very thoughtful, clever concept.

Check ’em out on the H4Legs web site or on Facebook.
