Most dogs will not pass up the chance for a walk. They don’t know what heat stroke is or that it can kill them.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) June 28, 2014
Fresh Patch—maker of the patented real-grass, disposable dog potty—reports that the sales of its product have increased significantly over the past two months, as temperatures have risen. According to the company, dog owners are becoming more aware that heat stroke can harm or kill their pets, especially if they live in extremely hot areas of the country.
“Fresh Patch lets owners avoid walking their dogs during the hottest times of the day,” says a company spokesperson. “And, if there is a scorching heat wave, owners can keep their dogs inside for several days, knowing that Fresh Patch will meet their bathroom needs 24/7 until outside walks are feasible.”
The company notes that its real-grass dog potty is useful in any season, but that it can be a dog’s life-saver in extremely hot weather. “Dogs don’t sweat the way humans do, and their panting mechanism may not be enough to cool them down and keep them from developing heat stroke if their body temperature becomes too high,” says the company.
The company also says that dogs can suffer from walking or running on extremely hot pavement. Because their owners wear protective shoes, they may not even think about how the hot pavement may be hurting their dogs’ paws. “Don’t rely on your dog to tell you that he or she is over-heating,” says the company. “Most dogs will not pass up the chance for a walk. They don’t know what heat stroke is or that it can kill them.”
The Fresh Patch Company says, “We are pleased to offer a product that can help dog owners protect their pets from heat stroke. When owners learn how devastating heat stroke can be, they realize that prevention is essential.” Fresh Patch dog potties feature special hydroponic grass that is long-lasting, light-weight, dirt-free, and highly absorbent. The company sells single units and a subscription service on its website (http://www.freshpatch.com). Deliveries are made across the continental U.S. via Fedex.
