Protect Your Newborns With Lamb Blankets and Covers
When first born and in the first several weeks of life, lambs are extremely susceptible to hypothermia and pneumonia due to low body temperatures, low birth weight, and windy, wet, or cold weather. It is vital to their survival supply proper lamb blankets, lamb coats, or lamb covers during this time to help fight off these conditions. The following are benefits that these three products from ICU Small Animal Rugs provide to your little lambs.
Keep Them Warm
ICU's lamb coats, blankets, and covers are made from windproof material, ensuring that your lambs do not suffer during windy weather. Additionally, there are designs with pouches for you to add a heating pad to increase their body temperature.
With no straps across the belly, there is nothing to rub against the umbilical cord. As rubbing can cause intense infection around the cord, it is important to have lamb covers that do not get near it.
Keep Them Dry
At ICU Small Animal Rugs, we create our lamb covers and coats from waterproof, moisture wicking material. This not only helps keep your lambs dry during wet weather, but it also allows you to put it directly on the lamb immediately after birth. Any amniotic fluid will dry up quickly, keeping the little lamb completely dry.
All of our products are made with the lamb in mind. They are lightweight, breathable, and do not cause the lamb to itch. Additionally, the design is meant to leave an opening for the tail and leaves the belly uncovered for the mother to groom her babies.
Keep Them Clean
Using dirty products on lambs can cause illness, disease, and bacterial infections. That's why ICU's lamb covers, blankets, and coats are easy to clean.
After the birth, you can use a little liquid detergent and water to clean it. Other times, you can easily wipe it down or sweep the dirt away. This capability helps ensure you keep your lambs clean and free of bacteria.
Don't leave your lambs' health and survival up to the elements. Take control by providing them with a warm, breathable, and waterproof ICU lamb blanket.
