K&H Microwaveable Pet Bed Warmer

Standard

Keep Your Pet Bed Warm for Less

As the weather starts to turn cooler, now is the time to consider your pets’ wellbeing and comfort.  The K&H Microwaveable Pet Bed Warmer is a great option to keep your dog or cat secure and warm.  You simply pop it into the microwave, and heat it for 4 – 5 minutes, or until the insides turn squishy and liquid.  Then you can place it inside your existing pet bed to provide added warmth for up to 8 hours.

It’s brilliant!  Even vets are using them.  One particular vet has stated that he uses them during surgical procedures to keep a pet’s body temperature up during surgery.

Although they are recommended for indoor use, some people are using them for their outdoor and feral cats.  This customer review on the K&H website tells the story:

Awesome! Perfect for feral kitties!

I got some of these for my outdoor feral kitties and it’s worked perfectly! First, feral kitties are super skittish about foreign things near them. However, they are perfectly comfortable with these. In fact, we found that as one of them cooled and re-hardened there was a little kitty pawprint solidified in the middle. Apparently, one fell asleep on it and it eventually cooled around their little paws. Second, I was a little concerned that it might be too warm if microwaved for several minutes. Was I going to have to wrap it in something to prevent over-warming or even a minor burn? Nope! It’s so well insulated that it’s pleasantly warm, but that’s it. However, I did learn from the customer service rep. that it will help to keep it warm longer if wrapped in a towel, blanket, or bed. This really is perfect for outdoor animals. There is very little foreign odor (maybe a slight new rubbery smell) and no noise to scare easily startled or skittish animals. Compared to some of the electric beds it is also very economical and you don’t have to worry about electrical dangers! I highly recommend!

Insert the K&H Microwave Pet Bed Warmer into your pet’s bed to give them added warmth.

They are soft and squishy when warm, so they can provide a young pup or kitten the warmth and sensation of sleeping with a littermate when used.  They are great for cuddling!  The durable neoprene cover is non-toxic.  No electricity is needed for up to 8 hours of warmth, other than the electricity needed to warm them up for 5 minutes in your microwave.

Most people who buy these, end up coming back for more for all of their pets.  We love them!  The K&H Microwaveable Pet Bed Warmer can be purchased online at ShopForPuppy.com, where a portion from each sale will be donated to Rescue.  If you have a favorite Rescue, please make a note during checkout and we will contact them.

Cold Weather Pet Care

Standard

Winter Dog Care

Great advice!  If it’s too cold for you, it’s too cold for your pet.  Many cities and municipalities have laws against leaving your pet’s outdoors in frigid weather.  The East Coast is currently experiencing sub-degree freezing temperatures this weekend.  If you can’t bring your pet’s indoors, then consider installing an Akoma Hound Heater Deluxe furnace for dogs in their shelter.

There are also a number of heated dog beds designed specifically for outdoor use.  These can be a lifesaver for your outdoor pets in sub-degree temperatures.   Outdoor Heated Pet Beds use very little energy, and are safe for outdoor use.  Please consider your furry friends when the temperatures drop below freezing.  If your dog lives in an Igloo dog house, Igloo Heated Pads are designed specifically for use in Igloo style dog houses and will keep your dog warm and toasty.  ShopForPuppy.com also sells Outdoor Heated Pet Pads, Heated Pads for Poultry, Chickens and Peeps, Small Animal Heated Pads for rabbits, ferrets and guinea pigs, and Outdoor Heated Cat Houses, all of which will help keep your outdoor pets warm and safe.

ShopForPuppy.com is proud of our generous charitable programs, where a portion of all revenue from each sale is donated to pet rescue and helping pets in need.

All K&H heated beds and pads feature dual thermostats and are designed to warm to your pet’s normal body temperature when he/she lies on the pad. When your pet is not on the pad, the heat will dissipate into the air and the surface temperature will vary according to the ambient air temperature. All KH heated products are thermostatically controlled to heat to 102° F, regardless of the size. Dual thermostat simply means there are two internal thermostats that will keep the surface of the bed at 10-15° F above ambient air temperature when your pet is not on the bed. When your pet lies on the bed, it will warm to about 102° F.The Lectro-Kennel Heated Pads come in three (3) sizes:
