Hi Ronnie – the Cool Bed worked really well – unfortunatelly, I only used it one day as Mocha got really sick and passed away on Easter monday- brain tumor – a very very sad day – It really did cool her off and she would totally relax and fall asleep – then she would be a bit too cool so would take her off and cuddle her till she got too hot again and I would put her back on the mat to cool her back – it was worth it for that day alone – Take care, Angy
