My 12 year old lab suffers greatly in the heat so now it's starting to get warmer I was thinking of getting a cooling mat for her (though she's so contrary she probably won't use it ...)
She's quite arthritic and has taken to sleeping on the hard wooden kitchen floor rather than her nice memory foam bed - presumably because it's cooler.
But there are just so many out there! Does anyone have any recommendations? Do they actually work?
CHILLAX pillows are great! (JML got mine from wilko's) I dont have a pooch but i would highly recommend-it is like always having a 'cold side' of the pillow when you pop them in pillow cases. Got one for a pregnant friend who hasn't stopped thanking me since...they seem perfect to me for your lovely lab
Thanks Annunaki , but it's a mat I'm after rather than a pillow. I've seen threads about them before and they've had mixed reviews - some people say they split easily. So I was wondering if there's a good brand to go for.
