UV Ray Blocking IG Coats Help Prevent Hemangiosarcoma (Skin Cancer) availabele in red and blue[jl]

One of our Texas IG Rescue Reps recently reported an extremely high incidence of hemangiomas, skin lesions and hemangiosarcomas affecting rescued IGs flowing through the Oklahoma corridor into Texas. Close to 90% of the IGs that she sees exhibit one of those 3 conditions. Increased UV rays from the sun are part of the cause. We now have another tool in our cancer fighting arsenal, A few years ago the scientists at NASA developed a type of fabric that is resistant to UV rays. That technology is now available to our dogs through these new PROTECTIVE UV RAY BLOCKING COATS. This fabric blocks 98% of UV rays from the sun. It also "breathes" and is water resistant. The fabric tested out to be SPF50 which is EXCELLENT!!!  (SPF is Sun Protection Factor).

When you & your best friend are standing outdoors at a dog show or just taking a walk...protect your IG with a coat. The coats tend to keep the dog cool in hot sun & warm in cold temps. You also won't believe how easy these coats are to put on and take off of a dog. There will be two sizes: 1) S/M for 9 to 11 pound IGs (in red with white trim) and  2) M/L for 12 to 16 pound IGs (in blue with white trim). The coat can be either hand or machine washed in luke warm water. Just hang up the coat or lay flat to dry. The fabric is machine washable and dryable; however, fabric softeners and chlorine bleach should not be used. It is suggested that the fabric be washed in cool or luke warm water and either hung or laid flat to dry. Because this fabric is so quick drying, you really don't need to use your dryer. Limiting your dog's time during sunbathing is a good idea! During the early morning and evening hours, the sun is less lethal and less UV rays reach the earth. Those are the times to let your dogs out in the sun. Also: THESE COATS DON'T COVER ALL PARTS OF YOUR IG. PLEASE USE PET SAFE SUNSCREEN ON THE NOSE, FACE, HEAD, EARS AND AREAS NOT COVERED BY THE COAT. WE ALSO CANNOT GUARANTEE THAT YOUR DOG WILL NEVER CONTRACT DERMAL HEMANGIOSARCOMA...BUT THESE COATS WILL REALLY HELP TOWARD THE PREVENTION OF THIS TERRIBLE DISEASE. MY DOGS WEAR THESE COATS EVERY TIME THEY GO OUTDOORS NO MATTER WHAT THE TEMPERATURE IS!!!! THESE COATS ARE A REAL BARGAIN in more ways than one!!!!!! Cost of the item is $34.50 per coat or two coats for $53.50 includes USA shipping.  Sale of these coats benefit IGRF.
