Tip of the Week: Sock It To ‘Em!
Take a look at what we’ve got cooking this week—a supplemental heat source for animals recovering from spay/neuter surgery AND a great project for volunteers and kids.
Simply fill a sock with uncooked rice and tie it closed. When warmed up in a microwave, the rice sock is a source of heat for an animal who is wrapped in a blanket. Be sure to wrap the sock in a pillowcase, as shown in the photo here. This way, the rice sock is never in direct contact with the patient, as it could spread disease or have the potential to burn an animal.

Come back every Monday for tips we’ve gleaned and seen that may make your life a little easier, make a routine process go a little faster or deliver some extra comfort for the animals in your care.
