Keep your pup cool in the Ultra Cool Coat

Posted

With the recent news that temperatures hit a record high in Arizona and even grounded airplanes, the dangers of high heat are on the public's mind. And while we all keep in mind the dangers of dehydration and heat stroke, pet owners have a little extra on their minds.

Tasked with the responsibility of their pet's wellfare, pet owners are remembering that dogs, too, can overheat in high temperatures. That's why Ultra Paws has developed the Ultra Cool Coat. The Ultra Cool Coat is designed to keep your dog cool in more ways than one. 

The coat is designed to be soaked in water and cool your dog through evaporative cooling. Made with an absorbent lining, the coat soaks up water, and can be wetted down with your water bottle on-the-go to continue the cooling. Humans cool their bodies by sweating, which is essentially evaporative cooling. Since dogs can't sweat, wetting down the Ultra Cool Coat gives them their own evaporative cooling system. 

The Ultra Cool Coat also comes with reusable, dehydrated ice packs. Wet the ice packs and freeze them, and then fit them into the Ultra Cool Coat's hidden pockets surrounding your dog's core. 

The Ultra Cool Coat is also made of reflective mesh on the exterior of the coat, which deflects heat away from your dog's body. It's also reflective in low light, and extra reflective accents add to your dog's nighttime visibility. 

Ultra Paws has made the Ultra Cool Coat easy to put on. Just slip the neck of the coat over your dog's head and attach the Velcro fastenings under the belly. An adjustable webbing band secures the coat with a quick snap. 

Paired with Ultra Paws' Ultra Cool Boots, which protect dogs' paws from hot asphalt, your dog will be all set for the hot summer sun. (Read our blog post on our Ultra Cool Boots here!)

The Ultra Cool Coat comes in six sizes, and ranges from $39.95 to $49.95, depending on the size. Each coat includes two ice packs. Extra cold packs are available for purchase separately.
