Take the “shame” out of the cone of shame
There’s no shame in wearing a cone. This fall, Trupanion is taking the “shame” out of the cone of shame in our second annual Cone of Joy design contest.
Get crafty, enter to win!
Trupanion is searching for creative Elizabethan collar designs to celebrate pet health and healing. Designs must incorporate an Elizabethan collar, or E-collar, often used in veterinary medicine to help animals heal. Take that boring cone, and make it into an accessory your pet would want to wear. Let your creativity lead the way.
The top 25 finalists win a swag bag filled with prizes for both you and your pup, including but not limited to an aluminum bottle and pop bowls for the pet on the go, Frisbee, bag holder and more!
Why an Elizabethan Collar?
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.
How to enter
Submit a photo of your creative, pet-friendly E-collar design on the Trupanion Facebook page, post a photo to your personal Facebook page and tag Trupanion and use the hashtag #ConeOfJoy, or send us a private message via Facebook with your photo.
