Zentek crate mats (originally designed to keep dogs at a safe temperature in their crates) are being used many other ways. They are a must if shipping any animal air cargo. Used at sport games-- to sit on -- it's saved many an uncomfortable tush. Many have used on their car seats, especially leather seats that are either too hot or cold. The professional dog owners always keep them in their van or motor home, in case of emergency. If the air conditioning misfunctions, you still have a method of keeping the dogs cool. As well as yourself. Many use these and keep the air conditioning off resulting in huge gas savings. Used medically, as a lap blanket on any wheelchair bound person, it helps with regulating body temperature.
