Cooling collars for dogs
The temperatures are rising, the sun is shining, we’re changing our clothes, going to the pool or the beach – as humans, we’re fully prepared to deal with hot weather. But how about our dogs? Dogs only release heat by panting and they sweat a little through the sweat glands on the pads of their paws. This isn’t the best way to cool down, so your dog is especially vulnerable to the heat in hot weather. Overheating can result in permanent damage to the organs, a coma and in extreme cases, death. So, do you want to help your dog and provide some much-needed relief? Continue reading!
How to cool down your dog?
Cooling down your dog? If it’s very hot outside, the first thing to do is schedule your walks in the early morning or late at night. You should also provide enough fresh water, preferably refreshing the water when it’s gotten too hot. A refreshing dip in the pool, a lake or the sea can also offer some much-needed relief. Does your dog dislike swimming? Consider trying out a cooling collar or bandana!
Cooling collar or bandana
Vetsend offers several cooling collars and bandanas for your dog. The Aqua Coolkeeper collar and bandana contain so-called HydroQuartz. Once this comes into contact with water, they form an active, cooling gel, which in turn absorbs your furry friend’s body heat before evaporating it. This way the collar has a continuous cooling effect. And the best part? You don’t need to freeze it – a little water will suffice! You can also try out a bandana by Trixie, APF Chill or CoolPets instead. Keep your dog’s head cool and choose a product your dog can comfortably wear. Once it starts getting too hot again, your dog is guaranteed to enjoy his cooling collar!
