The Blizzard veterinary blanket is a cost effective passive warming device proven to be a good alternative to active warming blankets.
All Blizzard products are made from Reflexcell™, a unique material with unrivalled thermal qualities.
Blizzard products have been extensively used for treating and preventing hypothermia by Militaries, Search & Rescue and Emergency Services worldwide for over 15 years.
The Veterinary blanket was developed in conjunction with Langford small animal hospital and Zurich University small animal hospital and has been trialled by Wildcat Haven and Holmes & Murphy Vets.
Hypothermia is a common complication during anaesthesia and post-operative, it can cause complications during recovery including cardiovascular issues and post-operative infection.
The blankets can be used during CT and X-Ray and over prolonged periods can outperform active heating devices. They can be re-used if required and overcome the problems of hot air movement in the operating theatre.
