How the Cooling Mat WorksUpdated a year ago

How the Cooling Gel Mat works:

The gel in a cooling pad is water-based with a polymer. Polymer is an activated chemical that changes properties when pressure-activated. When it's activated it pulls the heat from the body. 

The gel material that slowly absorbs energy and dissipates heat. When your pet sits on the mat, their weight activates the gel and starts the cooling process. Typically, gel mats stay cool for 3 to 4 hours and recharge after a rest period of 15 to 20 minutes.

The mat does not require refrigeration.

Do not freeze.
