DOG COOLING VEST - SHORT

£27.00

The ThermLow Cooling Short Vest has been designed for those that wish to concentrate on cooling down the body core temperature and the length is 65% of the standard ThermLow cooling vests.


The Cooling Vests are made from a soft lightweight PVA foam fabric that absorbs and retains water. The coat will stay moist and cool for several hours (dependant on weather conditions) however your dog will remain dry. The evaporative process activated by the cool fabric allows your dog to cool down more than the outside air.

The cooling vest slips over your dog's head and has an underbelly strap which covers the chest of your dog and allows the body core to cool down too. This provides for a more efficient cooling process.

 

Why does my dog need a cooling vest?

Unlike humans, dogs do not have efficient cooling systems and so they can overheat easily. Dogs try to regulate their body temperature by panting, or by perspiring through the pads of their paws, as they have almost no sweat glands like humans.  However, dogs can only expel a small fraction of a their excess bodyheat in this way. Using a cooling vest can therefore help your dog maintain a normal body temperature.

How to use the vest

To use the ThermLow cooling vest simply soak it in in water and then wring out so that it is moist but not dripping. Slip it over your dog’s head, tuck the underbelly strap between the dog's front legs and bring the straps up and secure the hook and look fastenings.  If the coat starts drying out, simply re-wet it to maintain the cooling effect.

How long does the vest stay cool?

This depends on the outside temperature, but generally it will stay cool for a few hours. If the vest starts drying out, simply re-wet it to maintain the cooling effect.

Caring for your vest

When not in use, leave the vest to dry out. It is not recommended that the vest is stored in a plastic bag for longer than a day once wet as it may start to smell. Instead, while damp, fold the vest into the shape that you would like to store it in, let it dry naturally and it will become hard and then it can be safely stored away.

DO NOT try and unfold your cooling vest when it is hard and dry as it could tear. Soak it in water and it will become soft and supple again and ready to use. If the vest starts drying out, simply re-wet it to maintain the cooling effect.

If required, the cooling vest can be machine washed at 30 degrees. Wash separately. Do not use conditioners or softeners and do not tumble dry.

Very happy customer!

This is the second cooling vest I've ordered from Freckles. The vests work well and are excellent quality. The first one was a custom sized vest and has now had a year of use, it looks just as good as new and has made a huge difference to my elderly Staffy who really feels the heat. This second vest was an 'off the peg' size for my newly adopted French Bulldog, it fits beautifully. I have no hesitation in recommending these cooling vests and Freckles, their customer service is excellent.
