Muffin’s Halo looks a lot like a costume your dog might wear to a Star Trek convention, but it’s actually a functional headpiece to help blind dogs move around safely in their environment. I was excited when I was introduced to the product. I know the perfect dog that could benefit from it.
Lucy is a sweet white Labrador retriever I’ve known for nearly 13 years. My good friends Sue and Curt adopted her when she was just a little ball of fur and they’ve given her the best life a dog could ever want. A couple of years ago Lucy started to lose her eyesight and today she is completely blind. Sue keeps Lucy in a cone collar whenever she goes outside because on more than one occasion Lucy has scratched the corneas of her eyes running into sharp bushes and flowers.
Muffin’s Halo protects visually impaired dogs with a protective collar and a guide that keeps them away from objects that could hurt them. It would be the perfect replacement for Lucy’s plastic cone collar that restricts her movement and enjoyment of the outdoors.
Muffin’s Halo was invented by Silvie Bordeaux after her toy poodle, Muffin, lost his eyesight more than two years ago because of cataracts. Today her invention has helped thousands of dogs and has been voted the worldwide leading blind dog product.
Blindness in dogs is fairly common and has many causes from cataracts, glaucoma, SARDS, trauma, retinal diseases and diabetes. Muffin’s Halo comes in a wide variety of adorable designs. You can find them on Amazon.
Here’s a video showing how Muffin’s Halo works. And as far as Lucy is concerned, I think I know what Santa is going to put in her stocking this year.
Disclaimer: Muffin’s Halo is not compensating me for this story. I’m sharing the product with you because I see how hard Lucy works to maneuver around her yard and how much I think this device will her help and other blind dogs.
