Well, with summer fast approaching, pet owners throughout the UAE are on the lookout for specialty items to keep their pets cool and comfortable. At RAK AWC we have some great products to help your pets get through the hot summer months, most importantly a ‘cooling jacket’ for dogs. The Ruffwear Swamp Cooler is a cooling vest thatuses natural evaporative cooling to keep your dog cool. Simply soak it in cold water, wring it out, and fasten around your dog. Evaporative cooling exchanges the dog's heat as water evaporates from the coat's reservoir. The Swamp Cooler's light colour is also designed to reflect heat from the sun.
This jacket has been tried and tested at RAK AWC with great results, Facilities Manager Helena Holland says, ‘it is ideal for my boxer, Manny. He doesn't have a problem wearing the jacket as it fits snugly and comfortably and there is no chafing when he wears it. He doesn't even notice that he has it on’.
‘Brachycephalic breeds areextremely prone to overheating’ says Helena, ‘Now whenever Manny goes for walks in the evening as well as daytime he is cool and comfortable. Most of the other solutions I have tried were not very comfortable for him. I am really happy that he won't end up in the veterinary hospital again with heatstroke. It is a very good product and well worth the money, I am now going to buy one for my other small dog’.
Don’t just take our word for it; check out the great reviews that the Ruffwear Swamp Cooler has received online. Other items to help your pets make it through the summer heat are Savic’s Aquaboy portable water dispenser, Ruffwear Summit Trex boots and Petkin sunscreen wipes.
