SnuggleSafe is for use in domestic microwaves only (max 1,500 watts).

Make sure that functions such as grilling, browning, combi, convection (if available on your microwave) are switched off. Make sure your oven interior is clean, especially the turntable. Food and drink residue can affect the heating performance of the heatpad and could result in overheating. Do not heat more than one SnuggleSafe at a time.

HEATING YOUR SNUGGLESAFE. You can heat SnuggleSafe with its cover on or off.

  1. Place SnuggleSafe on your microwave turntable, select full power and set timer according to the chart. If your microwave does not have a turntable, we recommend that you heat SnuggleSafe for 50% (half) of its recommended time, then turn it over (flip) and heat for the remaining time. This will ensure that it is heated as evenly as possible. Turn the microwave off whilst you flip the SnuggleSafe.

POWER                                                  TIME

600 – 650 watts                                 8 minutes

700 – 750 watts                                 7 minutes

800 – 850 watts                                 6 minutes

900 – 1,000 watts                              5 minutes

1,100 – 1,200 watts                           3 minutes

1,300 -  1,500 watts                           2½ minutes


  1. When you have selected the correct time, start the timer.
  2. When the timer has finished, leave the SnuggleSafe in the microwave for another minute. During this extra minute, the SnuggleSafe will continue to heat up, even though the power is off. After this extra minute, the temperature of SnuggleSafe will have stabilized.
  3. Before removing from the microwave, visually check that you have not accidentally overheated the bottle (see Safety Warning overleaf). When satisfied that the bottle has not been overheated, remove it from the microwave.

CAUTION: The bottle will be hot. If not in its cover, you should use a cloth or oven- glove to handle it.                                     

  1. Place SnuggleSafe under your pet’s bedding or under a loose blanket. If a cover is fitted to the heatpad, it is not necessary to place it under bedding, but you must ensure that your pet cannot touch the heatpad’s surface which will be hot. Ideally, there should be good insulation under SnuggleSafe, as this will help to reduce heat loss downwards, thereby extending the heat output.
  2. Do not place an uncovered SnuggleSafe in direct contact with your pet’s body as this might cause skin burns in some circumstances.
  3. Do not use with any animal that is unconscious or otherwise unable to react to thermal discomfort.


Allow SnuggleSafe to completely cool down before re-heating.


Clean SnuggleSafe by wiping with a damp cloth or spraying lightly with disinfectant and wiping dry. Do not use abrasive substances or scourers.

Replace heatpad after 3 year


Do not exceed the heating times

Overheating can damage the heatpad and may cause injury

Do not allow animals to bite or chew SnuggleSafe



SnuggleSafe contains Thermapol™ which is non-toxic and harmless when used according to these instructions. If seriously overheated, the bottle is designed to melt down so that the Thermapol™ disperses without impact. If the SnuggleSafe has been seriously overheated, do not open the microwave door until at least one minute after you turned off the power, then open the door with caution. Remember that SnuggleSafe continues to heat up after power has been switched off (see notes 3 and 4 overleaf). If leakage occurs as a result of overheating, Thermapol™ will be dangerously hot. DO NOT TOUCH. Allow Thermapol™ to cool. When cool, it can be removed from hard surfaces by scraping (use a plastic or wooden implement so that no damage is done to the hard surface) or  with hot water.

Persons who are not familiar with the operation of microwave ovens or who may not be competent with their use, should seek the advice and assistance of a competent person. Do not take risks. Do not allow children to heat SnuggleSafe unless properly supervised. Do not heat in a conventional oven or by any other method.

    I was on the fence about purchasing this for a while, but I finally did and I am so happy with it. It’s easy to use and clean, safe, and the icing on this heated pad cake - durable and reusable (and therefore a real investment imo). It does last for ages (around 10 hours in my experience), and I like to time it well as you can only re-heat it when the disc is completely cool. Overall way better than a water bottle could be.

    We have used this every night since we got it for our two cats that share a bed in our laundry. It can be a bit cold in there so this keeps them nice and toasty. So easy...just 4 mins in the microwave and really does stay warm for hours! It's is firmer than expected but fine under a blanket. We requested a paw print design which we got so put in a request if you want a specific design but maybe subject to availability.

    I didn't think my elderly cat would like it as the pad is quite hard but she loves it! I heat it, put it under her blanket and she lies on it day and night. Great product!

    Easy to use. Cat doesn't notice that it is hard plastic. Holds heat well.

    I got one for my cat, ended up buying a second for my mum. It stays warm for hours. Better than a hot water bottle
