Even in warmer climates, hedgehogs still require additional heat sources. The Electric Heated Pad for Hedgehogs and Small Animals by K&H Pet Products has been the go-to heating pad of Hamor Hollow Hedgehogs for many years. The build quality is top notch, with plug-it-in-and-forget-it operation.
Note: We recommend heating pads like this one instead of heat emitters because heating pads act as a more consistent heat source, and allow hedgies to regulate their own body temperature by choosing to lay on or off the heating pad. Heat emitters, on the other hand, force heat into an area, and we've seen plastic cage accessories and exercise wheels melt due to the use of heat emitters.
The K&H Small Animal Heated Pad keeps hedgehogs, guinea pigs, ferrets, rabbits, or other small animals warm in even the coldest conditions. Its 9" x 12" sleeping surface warms to an animal's natural body temperature while only using 25 watts.
To make the Small Animal Heated Pad stand up to everyday use, we implement several subtle yet thoughtful features:
- The first 18 inches of the power cord and the cord entrance are steel-capped to prevent chewing.
- The pad features rounded corners to make chewing more difficult.
- For maximum protection, used the 4 pre-drilled corner holes to mount the pad to a floor, sidewall, or cage.
With an MET safety listing and a 1-year limited warranty, the K&H Small Animal Heated Pad also gives you peace of mind. Choose an optional deluxe cover for added comfort.
