Almost all heating pads available today have a safety feature that turns the pad off after two hours or less. This can be deadly in a warming box, as puppies can cool off without the breeder realizing that the heat is no longer on. This has happened in our nursery. We searched extensively for the best heating pads for warming boxes.
This heating pad has both an auto-off and a STAY ON feature for warming boxes. With multiple heat settings, a soft washable cover, and a 30 second fast-heat technology, this pad is perfect for the needs of a puppy warming box.
We have found this item very hard to source during the pandemic and beyond. Also, many heating pads do not state whether they still turn themselves off or not. We have had to purchase a large variety of heating pads to test them for our clients, and have come up with a choice of heating pads that we are certain work in a nursery setup. The brand may vary. However, each one that we offer has been tested for a week at a time with a thermometer inside to be certain that they work, hold temperature, and don't turn themselves off.
The brand you get may not exactly match the photos on this page, as we often have to change suppliers and test new ones due to the issues with supply chain. Be assured that whichever one you get from us is something we have tested and use in our own nursery.
The 12X15" Small Heating Pad fits perfectly with the custom made Annie Box Bed. Even if you don't have the Annie Box Intensive Care Unit, the bed and heating pad setup can be used in your own warming box.
