The Cosy Heat Pad is designed to provide warmth for sick, young or debilitated animals and birds. The pad works by gradually heating up the area under where the animal sits.
The heater produces a temperature on the pad surface of about 15-20°C above room temperature.
When room temperature is less than 10°C, animals should be as close as practicable to the pad surface.
When room temperature exceeds 10°C, animals should be insulated from the pad surface with layers of woollen fabric. The thickness of insulation required will depend on the room temperature and should be adjusted so that the animal is comfortable.
Monitor the temperature where the animal rests with a thermometer. It should be between 25°C and 35°C, depending on the age and type of animal.
Heat stress can occur if the temperature is too high.
This device is fitted with a cut-off switch which limits the surface temperature of the pad, preventing excessively high temperatures.
Dog and Cat Beds: Simply place underneath bedding and provide protection from chewing.
Birds & Animals: Use in boxes and hospital cages. Place pad underneath or inside box or cage.
Veterinarians: use on operating tables and in recovery rooms
