This Doberman had to wear the ‘cone of shame’. She didn’t have any surgery, but it was to teach her to not scratch behind her right ear.
They checked with the vet if there was any infection. No problem there, it looked like it was only a bad habit.
I don’t know why people call it a ‘cone of shame’. Me, I call these: ‘satellite dishes’. That’s because, in another time and another galaxy, when satellite TV started, a friend had a satellite dish and the reception would change depending on the position of his dog who at the time wore a ‘cone of shame’.
