Why is it called that? I thought you would never ask. Back in the old time colonial days when Britain decided that every piece of land on district Earth was belonged to the queen, there were fashion statements being made in the Palace. Queen Elizabeth had a fancy way of dressing where she wore dresses with enormous collars that ascended from her neck line all the way up to her mouth area. These were royalty wear and many prominent English ladies also did the same.
Purpose of Cone of Shame
The E Collar or Pet Cone as simple as it seems is quite ingenious. When dogs go to the vet for various illnesses. If the animal receives surgery, stitches, patches over rounds or anything of that nature. The animal will always tend to lick the area where any foreign matter is such as those stitches and patches. Pet cats and dogs have been known to gnaw away and even chew out stitches and patches causing wounds not to be properly healed. If the animal licks and chews those unhealed wounds, it can cause irritation and infection, which may leave a hairless, discolored, ugly scar for life. The cone of shame or E-Collar is placed over the dog or cat’s head and prevents the movement of the head to chew at those tender areas of the animal. The cone serves the same purpose as a claw wrapping which would prevent the animal from scratching away at wounds to create further damages.
