Overheated, tired dogs love cool surfaces to lay on. Cool surfaces feel good on achy bones, and they help with post-amputation pain management relief too.
In our recent Tripawd News chat with animal rehabilitation specialist Leslie Gallagher McMahon, CCMT, CCRT of Two Hands Four Paws Canine Massage and Rehabilitation in Los Angeles, she tells how most dogs prefer cold over heat and using ice can reduce swelling and inflammation can aid in surgery recovery.
The Cool Bed: Restful Sleep for Post-Surgery Tripawds
The Cool Bed III is a great post-surgery aid for Tripawds. Designed by K&H Manufacturing, it works like a water bed. Once you fill it with water, the specially designed inner foam and water cells will evenly distribute wave-free, soothing coolness that’s at least 20 degrees cooler than the ambient air temperature.
The Cool Bed III requires no electricity to operate, and is suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
Cooling Dog Bed Considerations
The Cool Bed III has been redesigned with a non-toxic, vinyl/nylon surface that’s tougher and more durable than ever. Like any dog product, however, nothing is indestructible and there is always the potential for leakage after a good chew session. The Cool Bed III does come with a two year limited manufacturer warranty which covers defects in materials and worksmanship.
