The Elizabethan collar has a bad rap as the “cone of shame”. But these inexpensive devices go a long way in helping pets heal faster. While dogs and cats may not look particularly joyful when wearing the cone, it prevents them from licking wounds or injuries and speeds up recovery time. We want to take the “shame” out of the cone and celebrate pet health with Cones of Joy.
This fall, Trupanion took the “shame” out of cone of shame with its first annual Cone of Joy design contest. The contest asked pet owners, vet staff, and pet lovers to submit their creative Elizabethan collar designs to celebrate pet health and healing.
Best of all, the Cone of Joy design contest supported pets who need it most. The top 25 finalists win a $100 cash donation to an animal rescue organization of their choice. To see full contest rules, visit www.Trupanion.com/cone-of-joy
