Cool Vest® for Dogs Debuts in SkyMall, the Largest In-Flight Magazine

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - June 19, 2008) - Cool Vest®, the solution for keeping your dog healthy during summer's heat, will now be featured in SkyMall, debuting in its summer issue July 1. Now, world traveling pet owners have an easy way to order the latest in cool travel gear for their dogs.

SkyMall carries pet supplies that are not only functionally unique, but also products that promote a pet's health and safety.

Cool Vest® (www.CoolVest4dog.com), a unique cooling vest for man's best friend, has just received high marks from dog specialty media such as Dog Fancy magazine for discriminating dog owners. Dogs don't perspire as humans do, so you want to avoid having your canine overheat at all. A pet can die from heatstroke in as little as 20 minutes to an hour.

The Humane Society warns owners to take action when a dog displays heat stress signs such as heavy panting, glazed eyes, a rapid pulse, unsteadiness, a staggering gait, vomiting, or a deep red or purple tongue. Lowering your pet's body temperature by moving him out of the sun, applying cool (not cold) water over his body, and offering small amounts of water or ice cubes will help until you can bring him to a veterinarian... but the best cure is prevention.

Gramercy Distribution, Inc., US distributor of Cool Vest®, and SkyMall are both eager to promote the protection of dogs from the heat.

"We're happy that SkyMall and we share the same goal to provide comfort for our furry family members. SkyMall has1.8 million readers every day and now we can communicate to a vast number of people that dogs need to be protected from the heat," said Naoko Honda of Gramercy Distribution. "Now that summer's here, dog owners can enjoy dog sports or just long walks with their pets knowing they are protected easily and conveniently -- Just soak the adjustable, easy to wear, Cool Vest ® in water to provide a protective layer from direct and indirect sunlight and heat. Its waterproof lining keeps dogs dry, too, with no toxic chemicals or materials."

Digitaldog.com, a leading website for dog owners, recommends this ultra thin, lightweight vest to its visitors, noting that "The Cool Vest® is a solution that allows dogs to train and compete in hot summer months safely and efficiently. Anyone you know involved in Dog Sport or just running around with their dog should be told about the Cool Vest®"

The Vest cools by evaporation and will work for 45 minutes to two hours on average without the excessive coldness that might impair a dog's circulation. The cooling effects can be easily refreshed by remoistening the vest with water.
