At Eastside Veterinary Hospital, we use the PAH Thermalpad and the
Incubator. The Thermalpad is awesome for post-op patients who are
hypothermic. You can put them directly on the pad or on a blanket, and
leave them alone without fear of their getting burned. We routinely
place patients on the pad overnight, knowing they will not overheat. PAH
pads are a must for every veterinary hospital. The Thermal Incubator is
very versatile also. We use it with newborn kittens and pups to maintain
body temperature during c-sections, and as an oxygen cage by running a
tube from our oxygen supply through the louvered vent. It is ideal for
pets weighing less than 20 pounds. Every veterinary hospital should have
at least one.

I wanted to thank you so much for sending us the thermalpad incubator to
use for our wildlife patients. It has been pretty much occupied with a
wide variety of species. So far I haven�t found anything at all I would
change. I added a thermometer just so I could monitor the temperature
and make sure it wasn�t getting to warm etc.
Thank you so much again for your kindness! I know that a few of the
small babies would not have made it with out the incubator.

We love the THERMALPAD. We have used them both in surgery and in the
kennel room when someone needs extra warmth. We have found that the
animals that undergo surgery while on the pads recover from anesthesia
more quickly and crisply than those without. Here is a good story:
during a cold spell in October, a tiny geriatric Yorkshire terrier was
brought into the clinic one morning. She had been inadvertently left
outside after a �potty break� in the middle of the night. She was
hypothermic, seizuring, blind and her owner was just short of
hysterical. Between warm intravenous fluids, the thermalpad, some
anticonvulsant medication and a lot of TLC, this little critter not only
survived, but regained her vision and is no doubt sleeping on the pad as
I type this letter.
The flat pads are wonderful we use ors daily and highly recommend them
to other Veterinarians.
