Please could you let me know if this product is suitable for a dog kennel which is outside?
This is not to be used outside.
Would the 17x15 heat pad be suitable for the sleeping area of a Leopard Tortoise ( he does not hibernate)
It would be best to ask your local vet regarding this issue as we are unable to advise on this particular animal.
Hi is it ok to use this heat pad with existing cat bedding, eg on top of cushion and under blanket? or would this cause a fire risk? Thanks, Anna
We would advise to put over any bedding, rather than under, to prevent over heating.
Is it low voltage in the lead to the bed please? Wires can get chewed!
No, however the wires are well insulated. We have been selling the Veterinary heat pad for over five years and not once have we had a report of an animal chewing the wires. Wire protectors can be purchased from shops like B&Q, if that was something you wanted to look into.
Does this have a variable temperature controller?? How is the temperature controlled??
This heat pad doesn't have a variable temperature control. To get a desired temperature you would have to keep checking the unit with a thermometer until it reaches the correct temperature and then switch the unit off.
Can the heat pad be left switched on for indefinite periods of time
Hi, does this pad need to be kept completely flat when in use?
My cat has a thick cushion in her basket so it would curve with the shape of it.
Thanks , Samual Carter
That is fine however the unit must never be folded when in use.
Can you leave this on constantly? It would be in a pet be under the mattress.
It's fine to leave the pad on constantly.
One FAQ answer said that the pad cuts out after 90 mins. Will it automatically reset? We would want the pad to remain on for 12 hours overnight. Thanks
This unit stays on all the time it does not have a 90 min cut off.
Is this suitable for whelping? Probably missed it, but does it have a thermostat? Thanks
This Heat Pad can be used for whelping. However, we recommend you continually check the pups to make sure they are not getting too hot.

I am hoping to place the heat pad
UNDER an oval plastic dog bed,
so that when my dog lies in the pet bed,
he can feel the warmth.
Reason for above is to prevent damage to the pad because my dog likes to scrat
Placing this heat pad under your dogs plastic bed may cause damage to the electric elements in the pad, therefore we would not advise you to use it in this manner.
Ask a question?
How long is the electric cable from the plug to the pad please.
The cable length is 3m.
