It is SUPER easy to clean! It is machine washable up to 194ºF. Quick drying, though it can be tumble-dried on a cool setting in the dryer. However, DO NOT use fabric softener as the build-up of fabric softener on the fleece blocks moisture from going through, and prevents the fleece from doing it's job. The fleece will not shrink - although sometimes the pile may mat or bunch a little.
Frequently asked Questions: VetBed
VetBed is a fabric material designed in a way to keep pets comfortable and warm. It is very thick to provide cushioning on joints and to increase the warmth.
VetBed is 100% polyester, so it is non toxic, non-irritant, and non allergenic - making it a safe choice for puppies!
The material is exactly the same... We just made our thicker! The extra thickness keeps the dogs drier and warmer.
They are actually the same material. VetBed is the more common name used in Europe while ProFleece® is a brand name.
The material is incredibly easy to clean! Simply throw it in the washing-machine and tumble dry! We also recommend if you are using the vetbed for whelping or with animals with sensitive skin to NOT use detergent (as a residue can be left behind). Another option is to add a second rinse cycle.
Not exactly. The material is synthetic, so it is not really absorbing the fluids - but the design of the material causes the water to wick away from the animal until it can air-dry.
While there is no such thing as a soft fabric that a dog cannot chew, we found most dogs do not chew the material. This does not mean that some dogs will not try! One thing we've learned is that most dogs start chewing the corners of the material first. By setting your whelping box up to protect the corners, the potential for chewing is greatly reduced.
Absolutely! We recommend using a utility or carpet knife. You only need to cut through the back fabric part. You may get a little fluff that comes loose - but the material will not continue to fray! Cut it to fit perfectly inside your crate - or make it slightly oversized and set the crate over the top of it to protect the sides.
Yes! It is a great bedding material for rabbits, guinea pigs and more! It will not get pushed out of the cage like pellets or other bedding material and does not have the dust problem.
Yes! It is made from synthetic polyester, so you do not have to worry about allergies. It is warm and yet soft for the puppies. It was originally developed to mimic the mother dogs' fur coat that the puppies would naturally be in contact with.
I ordered the vet bed for my litter! I absolutely love it! It absorbs all of the liquid very well and has astonishingly aided in my puppies learn to walk. The material is so dense that it allows them to use their rear ends correctly and earlier. Although this material will certainly last a long time I will no doubt order more because of how good it it! Thank you gator kennels!
This is a great product. It washes and drys with ease and is my pups favorite bedding.
Absolutely a must for whelping puppies. Quality is excellent. Helps support newborns movement in the whelping box, which is a big deal for giant breeds. Washes very easily. My only complaint is I need a 64" by 64", this only comes in 60". I will definitely order again.
This is our second order. We purchased some 2 years ago, they have held up very well, washed great, and the girls love them. Shipping was quick and easy. When we needed more felt there was no better choice. We have also recommended them to other breeder friends.
