That's No Moon. It's An E-collar!

Most pets HATE "the cone of shame", or Elizabethan collars (e-collars) as they are more properly called.  They are a very necessary part of veterinary care, used to prevent a pet from licking or chewing at a certain area.  In a few decades of working in the veterinary field, I haven't seen clients get very creative with these unfortunate devices.

Until now.

As a veterinarian, geek, and major Star Wars fan, I grinned when I saw this online.  "Now witness the firepower of this fully ARMED and OPERATIONAL battle collar!"
