Colorado Springs, CO (PRWEB) December 8, 2003
Freezing temperatures are upon us and if youÂre one of the millions of pet owners whose dog stays outside in the winter in a regular doghouse or an igloo style doghouse, hereÂs a warm suggestion. Provide your outdoor dog with an electric heating pad from K&H Manufacturing. Available in both rectangular and half round shapes, these heat pads will fit any size doghouse, square, rectangular or round.
ÂWinter is a tough time for outdoor dogs, especially older dogs,Â says Jim Koskey, president of K&H Manufacturing. ÂTheir muscles stiffen up and it is tough on the entire system unless they have protection from the cold. Our Lectro-Kennels are the answer.Â
These weatherproof, vinyl heat pads are easy to clean, UL and CUL listed and can be used indoors or outdoors. They come with a 5 1/2 foot steel-wrapped, abrasion-resistant cord and a limited one-year warranty. An internal thermostat will maintain a cozy 102ÂºF surface temperature when in use. Using minimal wattage, these pads can be left on 24 hours a day.
Veterinarians and kennels have used the rectangular Lectro-Kennel for years. This is the first year for the igloo style pad. The half round shape covers half the floor of a Dogloo or Indigo doghouse, allowing the dog to chose when it wants warmth. These pads can also be used in garage, barns, porches or anywhere a dog can benefit from warmth and shelter.
Dogs should always have shelter from snow, rain and wind. It is also a good idea to have flap over the opening to prevent inclement weather from entering the shelter. The Lectro-Kennel is designed to warm the pet, not the space so it is important to prevent wind and snow from entering.
Do not use human heating pads for any pet. They reach much higher temperatures and can cause burns. They are also not designed for outdoor use like the K&H products.
Lectro-Kennel heating pads can be found at PETsMART and through numerous Internet retailers. Keywords, Dogloo Heaters and Lectro-Kennel
