    Default cooling neckbands and collapse trachae (2) separate issues

    Has anyone ever tried them, do they really work and how well? I live in San Antonio Texas, 100 degrees happens often. Would like to hear from others.
    Also, has anyones baby had a collapse trachae, My Emma was born with a very small trachae, and on next vet visit I wanted to get some information. Do not know much about it.
    thank You
    Pamela

    hi there. we have a cooling collar and it does work for a short time.. an hour or so then you have to cool it down again. . we just bought a cooling vest by chilly dogs used by the military for working dogs since we will be fishing in a nonA/C cabin in August. expensive but we will get our moneys worth.

    I don't have a cooling collar. Instead I bought a harness that is mesh around their front and before I know I am going to take Aubie out, I wet it and freeze it. I put a few ice cubes down the front and the harness being cold keeps the ice longer, keeping her cool longer. It definitely works in a pinch when you won't be out for hours at a time. I usually take her out for about an hour and it seems to keep her cool the whole time.

    I have the cooling bandanna and vests for the boys. Last summer they did come in very handy and stayed cool for a couple hours. I think they are worth getting as a supplement to other cooling mechanisms and as a cooling backup. I got mine from Keep Doggie Safe .

    The doggie pool (full of cold water, of course) is our saving grace on super hot days --- when / if we have them. Of course, these are supervised and my dogs are never, EVER left outside for any extended period of time -- with or without the pool -- on warm days.

    As far as the trachea goes, that would be a MAJOR concern for me simply because of the allergies these dogs seem to suffer with. My grandmother used to say, "If there's hives on the outside, there could be hives on the inside...". so I'm never without Benedryl in the house; just in case. You will want to be extra careful about heat with this pup and have a plan in case of an emergency with her breathing.

    Great advice... also be sure to be VERY careful with wearing collars and her pulling or you correcting with the leash/collar
