Drymate Whelping Pad (25135-Z)
Didn't work like they say it would
This product is nice in the fact that it is all one piece and is waterproof. However it doesn't hold up to washing well at all. The top layer is all fuzzy and clumped after just a few washings. The bottom pad is a little cracked. Was hoping to use this for a few litters and it won't last through this one. Will go back to my bath rugs, just wish someone made them special order size!
Have used for many years!
I was very surprised when I read these negative reviews as I have 2 that I bought several years ago and I love them. I've not had the problems that some people have had. I've used these over and over...when I have litters a few times a year and mine are still in great shape. The backing on mine is still intact and I even put them in the dryer! I guess maybe it's like with most things today....you find something you love and then they start to cheapen it by finding ways to make it for less, thus the quality goes down. I'm very disappointed because I was planning on buying some more, but now I don't know if I'm going to. The only thing that I've noticed with them is that they pill pretty badly after being washed so many times, but I've found a way to make them look pretty good again. I used to use one of those big battery operated pill-removers, which worked but took a long time. The other day I decided to try a slicker brush....took a lot of muscle power but it worked great! One thing I've learned is not to wash it with light colored bedding that can come off on them such as blankets that pill, because all that ends up on the dark mat, so now I only wash it with dark dog bedding that doesn't pill....works so much better and makes a lot less work! Hope this helps someone!
I have used these for YEARS!!!
Exceptional !!! I use them for Whelping and for pups pads , They was up easy and my my job easy peasey!!!
I chuckle at the person that said newspaper was better, oh my goodness, i would never go back to newspaper!
Love these Pads!
I had gotten two of these used from another breeder and we liked them so much we ordered more! They stay in place nicely, are easy to clean and give the puppies traction. They will hold up well as long as you follow the washing instructions and don't put them in the dryer.
Makes Care Easier & More time to ENJOY!
These are fabulous, I use them in my puppy play pen ~ they wick away wetness and somehow store it to keep puppies dry. They are easy to clean and phenominal padded backing gives playful pups that added protection when jumping rolling and just having fun. They help keep puppies at their optimum cleanliness. Although they say air dry I have no line/air dry option on my dryer (NO HEAT) and it works fine and they come out looking like new. They just take a little longer to dry. I highly recommend them, bought 2 and wish I had 4!
