My family includes two cats and two dogs. During the hot days of the summer, both my dogs like to stretch out on the ceramic tile floor in my dining room to cool off. In the winter months, I have a self-warming pet mat that my fur babies use. Thus, when recently offered the chance to review a self-cooling gel pet mat for dogs and cats from LotFancy in exchange for my honest opinion, I eagerly accepted the opportunity.
Price and Design
The 15.7 inch by 19.6 inch self-cooling gel pet mat from LotFancy currently costs $19.00 on Amazon with a list price of $39.00. (The smaller 11.8 inch by 15.7 inch version costs $13.00 with a list price of $32.00.) Made of non-toxic and completely latex-free material, the gel mat automatically cools down when sat on by an animal — no water, refrigeration, or batteries required. The durable puncture resistant material with reinforced edges is lightweight and portable for both indoor and outdoor use. Easily wipe the surface clean with a mix of mild soap and water. For longevity, store the mat in a sealed bag during cold winter months to keep the gel from evaporating.
I received the 15.7 inch by 19.6 inch self-cooling gel pet mat from LotFancy for my two dogs and two cats. Of my four animals, my kitten likes the mat the best so far! At first I was skeptical that the mat would provide cooling relief to my pets, but pressing my hand onto the surface immediately proved me wrong. As soon as you touch the pad, you can feel the cooling effect. The gel works for up to three hours at a time before needing to “recharge,” but my pets never stay on the mat that long during the day. If you want to recharge the cooling gel in the mat more quickly, you can pop the entire thing in the fridge, but refrigeration is not required. I absolutely love that I can set the LotFancy self-cooling gel pet mat out for my pets and not have to worry about it!
With four animals running around plus two small children, I need products that are extremely durable. So far I am super impressed with my self-cooling gel pet mat. The blue latex-free material is quite thick. I have been placing the mat on the floor of my dining room next to another pet bed, so my toddler son likes to stop on the surface whenever he walks past. My kindergartener daughter also steps on it fairly frequently, and all four of my animals tread on it throughout the day. I have not noticed any wear or tear on the pad yet. The stitching is also even and secure. I also appreciate the fold down the middle, which will allow me to fold the mat in half for easier storage in a sealed bag this winter. Overall my pets (especially my kitten) and I are quite pleased with the LotFancy self-cooling gel pet mat.
If you are searching for a cooling pat for your pets, I am quite impressed with the LotFancy self-cooling gel pet mat. I received the large mat, which measures 15.7 inches by 19.6 inches. A smaller mat that measures 11.8 inches by 15.7 inches is also available. As soon as you touch the pad, you can feel the cooling effect, which keeps your pets comfortable during the warmer months of the year without water, refrigeration, or batteries. The mat also folds in half for easier storage during the winter. I am therefore quite pleased with the self-cooling gel pet mat from LotFancy and recommend one to other pet parents.
