    The Rug Design With Sewn In Pouch
    We have incorporated a pouch inside of the rug situated over the kidney's where you can place a one time use heat pad. This will warm gently and not stress or place the newborn into shock and will warm the blood going through its kidney's, and circulate that warm blood through the newborn's body.
    We supply 16 heat pads when you purchase this lamb pack and you can purchase more from ICU Small Animal Rugs or purchase on line, a supermarket or Chemist Shop.
    But they must be HUMAN heat pads.
    Do Not use any heating devices that comes out of a microwave, heated with hot water or instant snap heat pads. As you cannot regulate the temperature of these devices. It could be harmful to your animal through overheating, burning or a worst other products could cause death.
    The Advantages And Design Of The Rug
    • The outer shell is a 3 layer laminated fabric that is waterproof, windproof and breathable
    • The odourless liner is a double sided thermal fabric that has been bacteria and mould treated with excellent wicking taking moisture from the skin
    • The only rug that you can place with confidence on a newborn still fresh from being born covered with Amniotic Fluid simply by placing an ICU Small Animal Rug on and inserting a heat pad into the pouch. The lamb will dry underneath the rug whether the lamb is undercover or out in the paddock with it's birthmother. Because of the 2 fabric together with the wicking advantages of the rug the lamb will dry quickly without any body heat being lost.
    • This rug looks very simple in design but there was a lot of research to achieve the end result. On the front of the rug there is a 4 way stretch UV fabric that has been bacteria and mould treated. This front fabric has been perfect for the fast growth rate in lambs allowing that extra stretch, also this allows the lamb to be able to stretch out their front legs without interference of being restricted by straps. Newborns need to be able to get up and keep up with their birth mother.
    • Our rugs do not have any straps around the belly of newborns. This stops the rubbing to the umbilici cord hence reducing infections and allowing air and the birth mother access.
    • With all of ICU Small Animal Rugs we have designed each rug in the shape of a "U" at the tail area (top of the tail dock) for easy access for the birth mother to I.D. her offspring
    • Legs straps on our Kid Goats and Lamb Products we use a high tension elastic that is attached to D ring. Placing a rug on a lamb or kid is so easy all you have to do is pull the hind legs through the leg loops and pull to get the correct tension. Again by using this elastic it allows growth without having to worry being too tight.
