FlexiFreeze is made right here in the USA using scientifically formulated film filled with 100% pure WATER. Why WATER? Because frozen WATER is exponentially more effective than gel at absorbing heat as it thaws. We use WATER because it just works better.
This veterinarian approved, DRY Cooling Vest/Collar uses the power of pure WATER FlexiFreeze® to help prevent canine heat stress. Strategically placed FlexiFreeze® is more effective than alternatives. (American made!) NOT an evaporative vest. (which can be unsafe) All Velcro closures, no difficult pinch buckles and machine washable. Veterinarians agree...warm weather and activity can overwhelm a dog quickly! And WE are responsible for keeping our dogs safe from HEAT STRESS.
The Hydro Cooling Mat uses the heat absorbing power of thawing ice to help keep dogs safe and comfortable. The Hydro Cooling Mat has a durable, machine-washable outer shell that has three inner pockets. Each pocket holds a component which performs a specific, key function.
The top layer is a waterbed cushion. By itself, the waterbed cushion doesn’t have tremendous heat absorption capability. Its functions in this application are to provide a soft, comfortable barrier between the ice and the dog while distributing the heat absorption capacity of the ice evenly throughout the Hydro Cooling Mat.
The middle layer is a FlexiFreeze® Ice sheet. It is the cooling engine of the Hydro Cooling Mat. The FlexiFreeze® Ice Sheet contains 88 completely sealed ice cubes made with pure water. That’s the equivalent of nearly 8 trays of ice. We use water because frozen water absorbs more heat, as it thaws, than any other material known to mankind. Since dogs cool off from their feet and bellies, it is important that they have a cool surface upon which to lie down.
The bottom layer is thick closed-cell foam insulation. The purpose of the insulating layer is to prevent the heat from the warm floor from thawing the FlexiFreeze® Ice Sheet more quickly. The insulation helps keep the work being done by the thawing ice focused towards helping draw heat off of the dog’s body through its belly and feet.
