Re: Cooling vests for dogs
Well I finally got some use out of the cooling mat - in the car, on the long drive to the clinic.
Even with the air on, when crawling slowly through the endless street works or stopped in traffic jams the car gets too hot for the Belltie. (He has serious respiratory disease.) So I put the cooling mat in the fridge for a couple hours then in the car. He actually lay on it the whole trip, seemed happy to have it.
The mat stayed cool for the hour we were on the road. But I think that is it's limit. To be really effective I'd need a way to cool it again for the return journey.
