Hot summer days can be distressing for your pet.
Self cooling gel mats are an ideal way to cool down your pet. Cooling mats are far better for your dog than laying on a cold, or wet surface. This is because with a cooling mat, your dog’s body temperature is reduced slowly.
The Scruffs Cool Mat does not require water, freezing, or electricity to activate. The Cool Mat works by absorbing body heat and dissipating this back through evaporation from the exposed mat surface. The mat remains cool to touch, around 5 – 10 degrees below ambient temperature. To reset the cooling properties of the mat, leave unused for one hour.
The Cool Mat is useful as an aid in the treatment of medical conditions that respond well to cooling.
Your dog’s body heat will eventually cause the mat to warm up and so it is recommended that from time to time, you move your dog and allow the ambient temperature to “recharge” the mat. The Cool Mat should always be used in shade.
Either side of the mat can be used and to clean, simply wipe with a damp cloth. If soiled, a mild detergent can be used.
