A Brief History Of The Elizabethan
Elizabethan collars or “E-Collars” are named from the
ruffs worn in Elizabethan times. A ruff is a huge
“ruffed” collar worn in Western Europe from the
mid-sixteenth century to the mid-seventeenth century.
The ruff, which was worn by men, women and children,
evolved from the small fabric ruffle at the drawstring
neck of the shirt. They served as changeable pieces of
cloth that could themselves be laundered separately while
keeping the wearer's doublet from becoming soiled at the
neckline. Think of a fancy lobster bib…
At their most extreme, ruffs were a foot or more wide. By
the end of the sixteenth century, ruffs were
(understandably) falling out of fashion in Western Europe,
in favor of much more comfortable collars.
Eventually ruffed collars fell away into obscurity. That
is, until a man named Edward J. Schilling came along and
invented the first post-surgical protective collar for
dogs in the early 1930s. He coined the term
“Elizabethan-style” for the collars and produced them one
at a time, as needed, by modifying inflatable rings: life
preservers, floatation devices, inner tubes, etc. The
first E-Collars were inflatable and remained that way
until the late 50s when Ed created the first plastic
recovery collar that resembled a “cone”.
E-collars Can Be Entertaining!
Let's start off
with a You Tube video we shot many years ago. One correction
- COMET collars are made in Denmark.
And here is a video I found from a COMET E-collar
distributor in Chile. It's actually a very well shot video,
although very serious. Yes, it is in Spanish - I may voice
over it one day - but for now I present you with El Comet!
Here's Dr Ramirez from Lakeview Veterinary Clinic, East
Peoria, Illinois. Sadly, he's not wearing
A COMET brand collar, but I still found it worth sharing. I
also found a tech who wants to bond
