    Do not use any heating device that comes out of a microwave, heated with hot water or instant snap heat pads. You cannot regulate the temperature of these devices. It could harm your animal through overheating, burning or at worst other products could cause death.
    The Advantages 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 wicks moisture from the skin and circulates the animals body heat.
    • The rug is mould resisted less likely hood of disease germinating.
    • A pouch has been incorporated inside the rug over the kidney's where l believe the animal will benefit most.
    • A single use heat pad can be placed inside the pouch if required. These heat pads will give the calf continuous heat up to 12 hours.
    • They do not cover or restrict the umbilical area of the newborn, less likelihood of infections. Along with bull calves not urine on belly straps.
    • If the calf is feeding from it's birthmother a "U" has been designed at the top of the tail area to allow the birthmother easy access to I.D her calf.

    The ICU Small Animal Rug would be one of the few rugs designed to make sure that the newborn skin can breathe even if you roughly towel the calf dry if needed you can place the rug on the calf and the liner will wick the excess moisture from the calf.

    Our rugs have been correctly fitted and balanced to a calf's size.  Your calf needs freedom of movement, you do not need a rug that has belly straps that restricts movements and your calf may get caught up in.
