    well im so very sorry for your loss and thanks for posting this so if it was the cooling pad then maybe others will be more careful with them if they plan on still using them. i think they are great but perhaps to be used with care. my problem is they wouldnt give you the ingredients until you got a lawyer involved. that says volumes to me. not sure you can persue them legally but at least you can warn others to the possible dangers with this product when the dog is not supervised. so sad.

It turns out the gel cooling pack stuff inside of the cooling pad has a lot of sodium, which can cause swelling on the brain, which can cause seizures, which Could have killed my dog.
    Even the cooling gel material on new mattresses is extremely questionable safety-wise. The chemicals have fumes which release into the room, and are well known to cause neurological problems. Did a lot of research on this nonsense when I was having all my problems this past year (neurological/muscular issues out of thin air). Was inspecting every aspect of my environment very closely. I had just purchased a "cooling gel" mattress prior to this starting, so I learned about them. I guess for most people they are okay but for others, they can cause major problems. Not surprised if your pup ingested all those similar chemicals. Sorry for your loss

    So sorry for your loss and thanks for the info. We use the Coolaroo for them to stay cool when they are hanging out in the family room with us and they love it. I often thought about buying one of those, but now I have changed my mind and will stick with the Coolaroo.

    Emily,
    As I posted when this happened to you and Debo, I am soooo sorry for you.I know you have unbearable grief. How could you have known? As dog lovers we all try to do the BEST for our furkids. It occurred to me back then, that it sounded closely related to the cooling pad. It just seemed like too much of a co incidence. I feel that just because a company SAYS(that it's safe) it, doesn't mean it's true. Every day I get notices from the FDA of recalls of faulty meds, dog food, yogurts, salads,etc.
    As we, the consumer learn the hard way, things are always proven toxic when there happens to be consumers who become the victim of illness or sadly, death.And we never know how many have gotten reactions until SOMEONE( of many-) comes forward and the company FINALLY issues a warning. I hope you can have some "closure" with Debo's passing-if it even saves one other bully's, or other breed's life. Praying for you-do not blame yourself as IF it was the pad, you could not have known.........

    @Emily

    I was so afraid that the ingredients in that cooling pad may have been the cause... I agree w/@cowsmom it does seem very suspicious that they wouldn't release the information until you had an attorney contact them. I'm so glad that you have decided to come forward & let other people know what happened to Debo... at least this way people can make an informed decision. You could very well be saving another dog's life, and that's at least one good thing that has come from this tragedy. Once again, my heart just breaks for you... Sending lots of prayers & hugs your way!!!

    I'm so sorry for your loss, Emily. Thank you for sharing your story so other dog owners know of the risk. I was thinking of getting one of those, but I will certainly be avoiding them now.

    I'm so sorry to hear of your loss of sweet Debo. No words will help you get get over this, or make the pain go away, only time and taking your time to miss and grieve him will help you heal. Just know we are all here for you, if you need to talk or vent. I understand how you feel as we lost our 14 year old Jack Russell to cancer, three years ago this month, and we still miss her. Take care Hun, and again I'm so sorry.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.
