[New Product] Gen7Pets Cool-Air Cot Pet Bed
Warmer weather means spending more time outside enjoying the fresh air and the sunshine. You may even be shopping for new patio furniture to enhance your outdoor living experience. While you’re at it, you should consider the benefits of an elevated pet bed for your cat or dog. The Gen7Pets Cool-Air Cot Pet Bed, is a stylish yet sturdy raised pet bed designed for your pet’s outdoor comfort.
How can a raised pet bed help protect my pet’s health?
With Spring and Summer upon us, you’re probably looking forward to lying in your favorite lounge chair and soaking up some rays. But what if you didn’t have a lounge chair or comfy patio furniture? Would you lay on the grass or the cement patio? Probably not. The yard is full of bugs, worms, and dirt, while the patio is hard, hot and uncomfortable!
Your pet has to deal with all of these problems when lying on the ground outdoors, and you have to deal with the lasting effects they have on your pet!
A few pet health problems that can arise from sleeping on the ground or patio include:
- Skin & coat problems from allergies to fleas and mites picked up from the yard
- Lyme disease from yard ticks
- Arthritis flare-ups from lying on hard surfaces
- Heat stroke from too much time on hot concrete or asphalt
Lying on the ground can take a toll on your pet’s health and wellbeing; from dirt and grass clippings in your pet’s fur, creepy bugs that carry diseases, aching joints, and becoming overheated.
Diagnosing and treating heat stroke in pets
The most worrisome problem with pets sleeping outside on hot surfaces is heat stroke (aka hyperthermia). In severe cases, heat stroke may cause damage to internal organs or even death. Pets don’t have the built-in cooling mechanism of sweating (like we do), so they can easily become overheated. A difference of just a few degrees in body temperature can be dangerous. Normal body temperature for dogs ranges from 101°-102.5°F. Heat stroke can occur when body temperature increases to around 104°-106°F.
Signs that your pet has heat stroke include unusual or excessive panting, depression/lethargy, bright red tongue or gums with thick saliva, vomiting, dizziness, or in extreme cases even shock or coma. If you suspect your pet has heat stroke, as with any pet emergency, contact your veterinarian as soon as possible. Your vet may recommend showering or bathing him or her in cool water (but not too cold) or applying an ice pack to the head to help bring down your pet’s temperature.

The powder-coated steel frame is weather- and rust-resistant and snaps together with ease for travel or storage.

It is available in sizes Medium or Large, and vibrant colors like Pathfinder Red and Trailblazer Blue.
