  • Useful Information

    Microwave heatpad. Provides up to 10 hours of long-lasting warmth. Quick and safe. No wires; bite resistant. Perfect travel companion. Ideal for newborn, convalescing and elderly pets.

    It isn’t magic, really, just good application of a simple scientific process. The Thermapol™ interior undergoes a physical change of state during the heat cycle. While other conventional products would be getting cooler, Snuggle Safe actually generates extra heat. This process lasts for around 5-6 hours during which time the temperature remains stable at around 52°C (123°F) giving an extended warmth, unmatched by any other non-electric heater.

    Snuggle Safe®

    Microwave Heatpad for Animals



    Keep these instructions available for reference

    SnuggleSafe is for use in domestic microwaves only (max 1,500 watts). Make sure that functions such as grilling or browning (if available on your microwave) are switched off. Make sure that your oven interior is clean, especially the turntable. Food and drink residue can affect the heating performance of the heatpad and could result in overheating. Do not heat more that on SnuggleSafe at a time.

    1. Place Snuggle Safe on your microwave turntable, select full power and set the timer according to the following chart.
      (If your microwave does not have a turntable, we recommend that you heat SnuggleSafe for 50% [half] of its recommended time, then turn it over [flip] and heat for the remaining time. Turn the microwave off whilst you flip the product.)

      600 - 650 Watts 8 minutes
      700 - 750 Watts 7 minutes
      800 - 850 Watts 6 minutes
      900 - 1,000 Watts 5 minutes
      1,100 - 1,200 Watts 4 minutes
      1,300 - 1,500 Watts 2½ minutes

    3. When you have selected the correct time appropriate to the power of your microwave, start the timer.
    4. When the time cycle has finished, leave Snuggle Safe in the microwave for another minute. During this extra minute, Snuggle Safe will continue to heat up even though the power is off. After this extra minute the temperature will have stabilized.
    5. Remove Snuggle Safe from the microwave.
      CAUTION: It will be hot and you may wish to use an oven glove or cloth to handle it.
    6. Place Snuggle Safe under your pet's bedding or under a loose blanket. Ideally there should also be good insulation under Snuggle Safe, as this will help to reduce heat loss downwards, thus greatly extending the time that Snuggle Safe gives out warmth. Do not place Snuggle Safe in direct contact with your pet's body.

    Allow Snuggle Safe to completely cool down before re-heating.

    Clean Snuggle Safe by wiping with a damp cloth or spraying lightly with disinfectant and wiping dry. Do not use abrasive substances or scourers.

    Do not exceed the heating times. Overheating can damage the heatpad and may cause injury. Do not allow animals to bite or chew Snuggle Safe. Any guarantee is invalid if the product has been overheated or damaged.

    Snuggle Safe contains Thermapol which is non-toxic and harmless when used according to these instructions. If seriously overheated, the bottle is designed to melt down so that the Thermapol disperses without impact. If leakage occurs as a result of overheating, Thermapol will be dangerously hot. Do not touch. Allow Thermapol to cool. When cool, it can be removed from hard surfaces with hot water.

    Persons who are not familiar with the operation of microwave ovens or who may not be competent with their use should seek the advice and assistance of a competent person. Do not take risks. Do not allow children to heat Snuggle Safe unless properly supervised. Do not heat in a conventional oven or by any other method. Replace heatpad after 3 years.

    Be careful heating this in the microwave.
    September 14, 2018
    If you overheat this by mistake it will pop and leak all over your microwave. Worse the gel inside will burn you very bad when you pick it up.This is dangerous if you heat it to long.

    Feral cat never had it this good.
    November 28, 2016
    Our resident feral cat and her daughter are in awe of this product. I received it yesterday and I'm not kidding the mother cat has been lying on her blanket with the heating disc, that is loose laid under the blanket for probably 24 out of 28 hours. We live in southern ca. and it still gets cold at night. Thankfully I bought 2 cause they're going to work 24/7. Terrific Product!!!!!

    Have used these pads for years for foster kittens without mothers. They keep the babies warm without getting too warm. Also, the heat lasts all night long. Here's a tip -- get more than one. That way you can use the pads full time and change them when it's convenient for you. Otherwise, you have to wait until the pad is cool before you can re-heat and re-use it.

    Safe Snuggling for Orphans
    April 10, 2016
    used properly this snufflesafe microwave heat pad is wonderful for comforting orphan kittens in need and helps in our daily efforts to make sure they thrive. this was extremely useful in a recent incident of a feral mom who was trapped and brought into an animal control we assist. Mom stopped nursing the kittens and never cleaned them either--as soon as she could, she then bolted out of her cage at the pound. The newborns babies were quite cold the next morning & miraculously took readily to the bottle and were soon fast asleep on their nice warm snugglepad.

    This has exceeded expectations. Use it for our cats and one cat in particular can't get enough of it. We also use it for ourselves at times (what the one cat isn't looking)

    SnuggleSafe Microwave Heat pad
    January 10, 2016
    I called to see how many watts my microwave was. The directions said to stay within the wattage or the pad could burst. The heating pad barely is hot. The directions made you think it was going to be so hot that the cats shouldn't touch it. It was lukewarm and when I put it outside for the ferals, it should have stayed warm for at least 2 hours. It did not.

    Use this when I leave for work. Heats my 2 Chihuahuas bed for the day. They love it!!
    Stays warm all day 8+ hours if placed on cushion of bed with blanket placed on top. Even the cats like it. Only wish it was just a little larger.

    great for outside cats
    December 21, 2015
    I am a "cat lady" and attract strays to my house. because we have our own inside cats, we made shelters on our porch for the 2 outside cats who spend most of the winter there. The Snuggle Safe Heat Pad works really well. I have 2 - 1 for each shelter. I heat them on HI for 4 minutes around 10 each winter evening and put them in the shelters under a soft mat. It keeps their house warm for 10 hours. Really works well but do NOT overheat and always let it sit for a minute before using with a pet in case there is a problem (too hot, leakage, etc.)

    I purchased these snuggle heat pads to help my outside cats stay warm. They sleep in the garage and it is not heated so I microwave these pads and put them under the cats and they are so warm all night and even in the morning the pads are still warm A great answer to my problem of helping my guys to stay warm at night. Great buy!!

    Excellent for senior cats
    August 13, 2015
    I honestly wasn't sure I would love this when it first arrived. I have a 19 yrs old cat that's very frail and she's always looking for a warm place to curl up and sleep.

    The outer cover is very nice and cozy, but the inner core is very hard. She didn't seem interested the first few days, but now she hunts for it. I heated it for 4 minutes and it stayed warm for nearly 10 hrs!

    I'm really glad I bought this and tried it several times until she got used to using it.

    We love how it keeps warm for many hours. I have bought several for my other family member's dogs. It works not only for pets, but for people. I have often used it to keep warm at nights. it can last up to 10 hours when used under the sheets.

    Not for every cat
    January 28, 2015
    I have a very thin elderly cat who we are trying to fatten up to be more healthy. She likes to sleep on the heating vent to stay extra warm. We thought this pillow would do the trick but she would have nothing to do with it. It did get warm but it was still very hard and I think she found it uncomfortable
    By Penny
    Safe and warm
    January 25, 2015
    Snugglesafe is the best heating element for animals because they can't be chewed, operate without cords or electricity and they stay warm! Yes, they are hard, but wrap them in a towel or place inside bedding...animals gravitate towards the warmth. Recommend purchasing two so they can be swapped out for continuous heat. Have used snuggle safe for domesticated and educational wildlife with utmost success.

    The SnuggleSafe was at a very good price. The SnuggleSafe is exactly as described and worked very well. The delivery was exceptional, very fast. My cat was made much more comfortable.
    I have told friends about it and about EntirelyPets.

    January 21, 2015
    EntirelyPets: The SnuggleSafe shipped and arrived quickly, the pricing was reasonable, and the customer service was excellent.

    SnuggleSafe Product: Using it for my bunny. Seems to work well and I like it so far.

    SnuggleSafe Customer Service: I emailed the SnuggleSafe company directly with a question regarding the heat timing I should use on my 1580 watt microwave (they only indicate to 1500 in the instructions), and 2 weeks later I have yet to receive a response.

    My cats Love Them
    January 17, 2015
    I have a 13 year old and a 6 year old that just love these heated discs. You can find them throughout the day sleeping on the discs especially during the cold summer months. Best Christmas gift from Santa ever. I also purchased another set just so I will always have them and in case I get another animal. The way these two hug them there is no way they are going to share. The disc hold the heat for a good 8 hours.

    Our cat is almost 19 years old. I put my kitty on it, and he spends most of the day there. It stays warm for about 12 hrs.

    No worries, heating pads are scary and usually turn off.

    easy to use
    March 5, 2014
    I live in NJ and have 2 feral cats who live in a barn in my yard. I have been giving them snuggle discs for 9 yrs. I have a doghouse in the barn filled with wool army blankets. I put 3 snuggle pads under a layer or two of blankets for them and when I go to get the discs the next day they are still warm. This product works well and is easy to use. They usually last about 3 yrs, then I replace them. Always use under a blanket so the animal's skin doesn't get burned.

    Didn't stay warm for as lon as I thought it would. I should call the company. Bought it for my French Bull Dog who sleeps in bed with us and hates the cold. She hasn't taken to it yet, prefers my heating pad.

    Warms my ferals
    January 11, 2014
    Already had three of these and just ordered two more. Easy to use and they keep the feral cats I take care of really warm and confortable in cold weather. Have used them for years - I have five ferals I take care of - one of them I have had for about 13 years. She will not come inside but these keep her warm in her house. When very cold I use them around the clock.

    Love them, Love them!!!!!!!!! Thanks.

    Can i use this in an out door Feral cat shelter this winter in Southern Ontario
    3 Answers
    Yes, but I donâ€â"¢t know how long it will retain heat. You might experiment with thermal bags or other materials that will help retain heat. I use one in my unheated greenhouse in the winter. I put it inside a thermal bag and it stays warm for a few hours.

    Hello, I have taken on the care of two feral cats in the neighborhood. I will be building shelters for them with straw inside. Can I use this product with the straw? Is there any danger of the straw igniting? Thank you, Norma Clouse
    1 Answer
    The warnings and cautions of the SnuggleSafe Microwave Heat Pad do not seem to indicate that placing the pad next to straw or other potentially flammable objects. This leads me to believe there is not much risk, if any, for the straw igniting.
