Long lasting pet bed warmer
Manufacturer: Lenric C21 Ltd
|We thought the thickness and hardness
of the pad required it to be wrapped in a blanket to ensure the animal's maximum comfort.
The manufacturer does sell two versions of a cuddly cushion at £12.95 each (Bruno and
Bonzo - see right) but, of course, that adds an extra cost.
Style and design: Could be larger surface area and thinner or softer but this might reduce its heating capacity
Instructions for use: Good, clear and precise
Prices: Buy from Pet Shops or over the Internet
Delivery: Available on-line from Agilty Warehouse.
Value for money: Over a three year period, it does not seem expensive but the price could deter some buyers. If you had a larger dog, i.e. a GSD, you would require more than one pad.
Overall rating: 7/10 mainly because the size of the pad restricts it use and makes it less useful for medium and larger dogs.

From Kim Gladstone...
Having read the review on the heat pad I would just like to add one thing. On a cold day when your sitting in the car waiting for your run, its nice to have a spare to warm your own seat, I have one each for the dogs and am getting one for myself next autumn as I keep pinching theirs, well actually we share.
From Janet Strawbridge...
I have used this product for the last three years. It has been begged and borrowed by people with puppies as it is a sure way of getting a good nights sleep when you have a new puppy. I made myself a cover for it out of an old scarf. I have even used the heat pad for myself placing it behind my back when driving to ease its soreness. Well worth the money. Wouldn't be without it. If it came with a cover I'd give it 10/10, no cover so 9/10.
From Chris Kavallares,

Just for background information. We used to have a border collie called Jake. He was exceptionally bright and very agile right up to the last few years of his life. These were spent mainly in convalescents from his ailing arthritic condition. We used our SnuggleSafe heatpad in his bedding and positioned it around his hind quarters. This with some prescribed medicine recommended by the vet helped ease his pain from his condition and improved his well being. He was finally put to sleep from, I hope, a happy lifetime of 15 years.
