I bought different cooling mats for my animals: to soak, to put in the freezer… Without great results. Last month, the Lidl brand released several products for cats and dogs. And I jumped at the chance to take the cooling mat with gel.
The Zoofari Lidl cooling mat
I bought two cooling mats (50 x 90 cm): 1 for my cats and 1 for my dog. The carpet to a contact cooling effect with the animal’s body for several hours. It works without cooling, without electricity and without adding water. It can be placed directly on the ground or on a bed.
Why install a cooling mat for your cat?
The cooling mat is useful to fight against heat stroke. This generally occurs in summer during heat waves.
There body temperature of a cat should be between 38 and 39°C. Above this temperature, the cat suffers from hyperthermia. We can observe different clinical signs: the cat is panting, breathing quickly and it is dehydrated. It is important that the cat is in a cool room. If in doubt, consult a veterinarian.
Did you rock it?
The cat licks itself and deposits a maximum of saliva on its coat. The evaporation of this refreshes it immediately.
