A special cohesive bandage that cools for hours –
Perfect for hot days or as an aid for heavy work or race training

Heat can be a real enemy to animals.  Racehorses have so much muscle packed on their frame that race training can leave them steaming on the track – literally! 

All that heat can affect their recovery, well-being, and performance.  There are ways to help beat the heat – ice packs, plaster compresses, fans – but many of them can impact the animal's ability to move freely, weigh them down, or have a hard time conforming to the natural, physical shape of the animal.   

This is a unique vet wrap, which offers both compression and a cooling effect that lasts for hours.  We use simple chemistry, such as ethanol, camphor, and water, to help draw heat away from the surface of the animal, using only a lightweight layer of fabric that can be torn by hand or cut with scissors.

  • To open: unscrew the lid, and puncture and remove the foil seal.  
  • To apply: the Cool Compressor sticks best when overlapping for several inches – try to work with a large overlap to get the best self-grip!  To get the greatest self-grip, apply pressure for 5-10 seconds on overlapping area.  This helps the cohesive bandage anchor to itself
  • To tear:  stretch the bandage before tearing;  when tearing, pull hands away from each other, and initiate the tear action from the hand holding the tape roll
  • Storage:  Store unused portion in the blue canister (included);  opened canisters will keep solution from drying out for weeks or months after opening

Packaging:  Plastic tube, which keeps it from drying out after opening.  Comes with foil cap to prevent drying out and keeping it stable for years before opening. 

Shelf Life: With the foil seal, Cool Compressor has a shelf life of over 1 year without drying out.
