Our staff was just invited to join: www.FunnyPaws.com – the newest social network available for pet owners, pet businesses, brands and others associated with the pet market. This social network has a new twist and we think it will be one of the first to stand the test of time.
Social networks for pet lovers have come and gone – while none of them truly catching on. Either there was difficulty in use, or they were setup as actual “pet” networking sites. (we all know that it’s the owner’s doing the networking) – or maybe they were not really targeting what the user is truly looking for.
As pet owners and animal lovers, we want to be entertained, understand what’s new and impressive in the pet market, and get our questions answered by someone that is NOT a marketer for a pet store or manufacturer. We want to talk to real people about real pet and animal problems.
Entertainment: We don’t necessarily have to own pet’s to enjoy the laughter and love that animals can bring to our lives. FunnyPaws has taken the lead in understanding that need. Dedicated to laughs and love, you don’t have to be a pet owner to join. (Joining is free and you can join straight through your twitter account if you have one).
Finally, if you own a pet store, are responsible for marketing a pet brand, are a vet, or a dog walker, you are welcome to create your own “Brand Group”, “Business Group” or “Local Group” on the website. This can drum up business, but note that FunnyPaws will not tolerate spamming it’s members.
Although FunnyPaws is limiting it’s advertisements for now (all development was funded internally by owners) – we wonder where the revenue stream will eventually come from? Stay tuned – but for now, please take a peek and join: www.FunnyPaws.com.
Cold therapy is universally used to minimize damage following injury and help equine athletes heal faster during injury rehabilitation.
Cold therapy has a local anesthetic effect. Cold therapy (Ice Wraps) can significantly reduce pain and inhibit reflexive muscle spasms in your horse. Early use of cold therapy on horses can reduce primary bleeding through its vasoconstrictive effects, and thus inhibit swelling.
Reducing tissue temperature can lower the metabolic rate of both the involved and uninjured cells. This reduction in the metabolic rate decreases the demand for oxygen. This helps to break the secondary hypoxic injury cycle and making the horse’s body’s repair job easier.

We recommend the Equine Ice Wrap Kit
- The kit includes a small refreezable cooler and two pairs of leg wraps for the quarter horse.
- The patented Coldone 3 layer design compresses to drive cold deep to reduce or stop swelling.
- The outer layer of heavy neoprene provides stretch and compression.
- The center layer is 100% non-toxic freezable gel which is also flexible and comfortable.
- The inner layer is of fine linen to prevent cold shock to the skin.
- No messy ice, no inserts, and can be easily applied by rider or trainer.
- Refreezes in 4 hours.
*The quarter horse leg wraps are smaller than the warm blood leg wraps, and should only be used for the front legs of the quarter horse. The warm blood equine kit or leg wrap pairs should be used for the hind legs of the quarter horse.
IN SUMMARY – COLD THERAPY:
- Decreases pain and muscle spasms.
- Decreases swelling.
- Initiates a state of “hibernation” in cells, keeping them alive during oxygen shortage.
- Reduces bleeding by increasing blood viscosity and enhancing coagulation.
