Anaesthesic induced hypothermia is a well known issue, and occurs in a high percentage of patients, the HotDog warming blanket was designed specifically to reduce these risks
The HotDog® warming blanket is a breakthrough technology, reduce these risks designed to reduce the risk of hypothermia. The patented ThermAssure™ fabric is a conductive polymer which responds to low-voltage current, warming throughout, without hot spots.
Choose from a large range of reusable mats and single or dual port controllers options.

A sensor within the blanket ensures the blanket stays at the perfect temperature at all times, a second sensor works as a safety back-up. The controller has 2 over – temperature alarms for safety. If the blanket exceeds maximum temperature setting, it will set off an alarm with a constant beep and light. If the temperature continues to rise, it will automatically shut off ensuring no patient can overheat. If the alarm sounds, the blanket can be reset to safe temperatures by turning the controller off and on.
The medium temperature setting is recommended, but the high setting may be needed if the barrier between the patient and the blanket is thick enough to limit the heat transfer
A barrier that has absorbed a lot of fluids should not be in contact with the sensor area of the blanket, as the sensor will continuously call for more heat from the controller to try to warm the wet barrier up to the set temperature. This can result in over-warming of areas of the blanket not in contact with the cooler fluid-soaked barrier.
Particularly for long procedures or heavy animals, we recommend some padding on the hard table or trough, under the Hot Dog blanket, to mitigate any pressure points.
Damaged blankets can result in uneven heating as fluid ingress will eventually damage the heater fabric in the blankets
Peroxide-based cleaners can damage the blankets, causing uneven heating
HotDog Patient Warming products (controllers & blankets) come with a one-year warranty against manfacturing defects. The average life expectancy of the blankets is 18-24 months. The blankets are also marked with a two-year expiry date label. http://vetwarming.com/resources will always have the most current user information
