ThermoCare® didn't invent the hot water bottle... they perfected it!

ThermoCare offers affordable, Warming or Intensive Care System (ICS) Units providing the best possible environmental care for small animals, which aid in the care management of sick, recovering, or chronically ill animals through the use of our patented “Safe Heat” design. Our products have been used by responsible Veterinarians, Breeders and Pet Owners for thirty years to prevent or lessen the debilitating effects of hypothermia in all newborns, convalescents and post-surgical patients or those that may be in respiratory stress. ThermoCare's water-jacketed Warmers and Intensive Care Systems (ICS) are the safest, most reliable, and versatile animal care units available.

Testimonials

We are so proud to receive compliments from happy customers:

“We have used ThermoCare warmers since they first became available decades ago. We have used them for a wide range of domestic and exotic mammals, including monkeys, hedgehogs, wallabies, skunks, ferrets, and of course, puppies and kittens. We depend heavily on ThermoCare warmers to help us ensure newborn and neonatal survival. We cannot imagine being without ours!

The precious lives these warmers have helped us save more than compensate for their cost. We highly recommend ThermoCare warmers to our veterinary colleagues and to anyone rehabilitating sick and injured animals, raising orphans, or caring for neonates. A ThermoCare warmer can make all the difference between survival and death.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I get the Dome-Shaped or Flat Clear Plastic Cover?
Once you choose the style of cover to best fit your needs, the Warmer becomes an ICS Unit, or a Portable Intensive Care System, an Oxygenc Cage, or a Post-Operative Recovery Unit. Accessories include: 2 Nebulizers, Humidifier, Oxygen Diluter, Oxygen Tubing, Hose Fittings, Hose Connectors and Water Conditioner (warmer height divider included with flat covered units). Adjustable vented handport covers discourage buildup of heat, humidity, and CO2.

What If I Don't Have Room for a Large Cage?
Have a smaller-sized animal? Thermocare offers a smaller warmer option also. The Dome Cover on the small unit provides a 15-inch compartment height while the Flat Cover has 6.5 inches of headroom. With the Flat Cover option, the cage is now suitable for small birds, infant animals, rodents, and reptiles.

What If I Need a Medium or Large ICS Unit?
If the smaller unit doesn't fit your needs, Thermocare offers 33 x 42 inch cages that have 3-4 times the capacity of the smaller one -- capable of holding up to an 80-pound dog!

Do Your Products Use Motor Fans?
No motor fan is needed. Motor fans could actually ignite the oxygen being supplied to the unit with the smallest of sparks, so Thermocare units do not use or supply motor fans. The air within the ICS Unit, and the heated water lining in the Warmer, are both naturally circulated by convection currents. Using the water conditioner provided, the water rarely needs to be changed.
