By Travis McDermott DVM

In today’s shopping landscape, there’s a pet product for every aspect of your pet’s life.  There are endless amounts of toys, furniture, bowls, collars, leashes, and even clothes.  But what about products that are designed to address your pets medical condition? These pet health products don’t get much press, but can be integral to your pet’s recovery or quality of life if injured or sick.  I polled not only the veterinarians at our 8 doctor small animal clinic, but all of the veterinarians I knew through social media. What we came up with were 5 amazing products used to aid with some sort of medical condition.



For pet parents who want the best for their blind dogs, Muffin’s Halo is an innovative device that enhances their lives. It is a three-piece device with wings and a harness made of high quality material to provide maximum comfort to your dog. One of the number one injuries that we see in dogs with visual issues is corneal ulcers/scratches on the eye from bumping into hard surfaces.  This can lead to complications including infection and sometimes the need to remove the eye.

Muffin’s Halo helps dogs with lost or impaired sight to navigate their surroundings confidently and safely and provides full protection to help your blind or visually impaired dog adjust to their condition as they lead a bump-free life. The material is lightweight, comfortable and easy to spot clean or machine wash.

It is extremely soft and less constrictive than a thicker wrap made with standard bandaging materials, and it provides ear flap accessibility for tending or checking ears during treatment. The No Flap Ear Wrap comes in 6 different sizes and colors so you can choose the best fit according to your pet’s breed and size.
