Animal Warming/Heating Pads
Kent Scientific’s animal warming products provide an essential function—they maintain the body temperature of small animals at optimum levels during surgery. Because of their smaller body size, rodents tend to lose heat rapidly, especially when under anesthesia. That can lead to hypothermia, which can cause respiratory dysfunction, cardiac arrest, and even death. Placing the animal on a thermal blanket or mouse warming product such as a circulating water warming pad or an infrared heating pad enables clinicians to keep the animal’s temperature stable, which makes the animal more comfortable, minimizes risks from anesthesia, and encourages faster recovery.
