As a Senior Dog I love to just chill …
basically I enjoy resting and taking long naps.
Comfort is very important.
Love the couch(es) (that i am not allowed to lay on).
If the couch is not available I often stay on my comfy bed.
My bed got more comfy …
Silver Tail provided me a mat for Senior Dog. It’s a multi-purpose mat that you can take anywhere. It has a non-skid bottom so it is perfect when my mom places it on the wood floor (next to my bed).
What’s so cool about it?
It has a removable Bamboo Charcoal Insert. Honestly, we are not familiar with this kind of insert which for us makes this an intriguing product.
Why Bamboo Charcoal? According to Silver Tail packaging … “Bamboo Charcoal is made from Moso Bamboo, also known as “Black Diamond”. It has a high mineral content including potassium, calcium, iron & sodium. When fired at temperatures over 800C the structure carbonizes and develops unique properties that deodorize, purify and control humidity. It also reacts with your pet’s body heat producing FAR infrared rays. These rays are known to relieve aches and pains, reduce stress, and speeds recovery. Other benefits may include joint relief and improved circulation, energy and flexibility.”
Interesting! Does anyone know about this?
Well,I received this mat mid October and it took me about 2 weeks to lay on it. WHY? My mom thinks because of the weather. It was hot and when the weather changed I started to lay on it especially after our morning walk. Currently, this mat is permanently on my bed. Mom says that I sleep well (been snoring more often) and have been sleeping a lot on my back. Since I do not have any joint pains or discomfort,
I am not sure if it has helped. My mom does like the idea of the removable bamboo insert. She is thinking to make me a pillow wherein there will be a slot for the insert.
On the packaging it says that the bamboo charcoal insert is washable (by hand) and recharges in the sun. We are just unsure when is the right time to wash the charcoal insert. We wish the packaging has a clearer and more detailed instructions. Also, the waterproof lining material captures … lots, lots, lots, of my fur.
My mom finds using a lint brush the best way to clean it up.
I give Silver Tail 2 out of 4 Golden Paws.
Lots of Golden Woofs
