My seniors love their warmers all year around.
These do get very warm so it is advisable to use a nice thick cover over them . Senior pets frequently won't feel the burn until damage has been done. When they cool they do get hard like a rock. In my experience these warmers do cool quicker in average indoor temps than manufacture states. I have been using the same two bed warmers for approx 60uses each and so far have had no leaks and no problems with them . Senior dogs weighing 6 to 14 pounds use them inside our home under their bed cushion.
Does the job with piece of mind
I like this pad. It gets soft when heated and slowly hardens as it cools. My 15 year old (recently adopted) dog really likes it. I also have a plug in heating pad for him but like the safety factor of this one when I’m not home. The warmth decreases over time but lasts several hours. I will also use it when taking him out in the car this winter. I gave 4 stars because because I wish the heat lasted a little longer - really 4.5 stars. Also great for stroller use!!!
starsKeep your cats warm.
I have checked the heat time and found that if the cat uses it right away, it will stay warmer longer. I feed feral cats that live in wooded area about 15 minutes from my house. The product will stay warm as long as 10 hours, if the cat uses it continuously. The average is usually 7 to 8 hours in temperatures in the 30's and 40's.
