A family that was deterred from using remote/e-collar because their veterinarian advised that it would make their dog more aggressive. They believed it was an actual ‘shock’ to the dog, which it isn’t, it is a miniaturized TENS unit. Christina just so happens to be a Physical Therapist and uses TENS units on her patients on a regular basis.
After being educated on what an e-collar really is, their stand on the use of it took a 180.
Veterinarian’s recommendation of prescribed medication did not fix the issue. Neither did a Holistic Positive Behavioral Therapist’s approach of using food to redirect his behavior or changing his diet to a raw diet to fix the problem ‘internally.’
