APLS Thermal Guard Vet

APLS Thermal Guard Vet — Protects Working K9's and Animals During Transport

APLS Thermal Guard Vet is a portable and disposable absorbent litter that provides maximum thermal protection to working K9's and other animals during emergency transport.

APLS Thermal Guard Vet provides an integrated system for improved patient care: the highly absorbent cellulose core wicks fluids away from the injured K9, while the fleece-lined bag retains body heat, and the treated nylon backing protects against wind and moisture.

Two closable "L" shaped access points enable the K9 to retain body heat while being treated by medical personnel. For added thermal protection, optional internal pockets provide a "heat zone" in four key areas when used with a mobile heat source.


  • Up to 4 liters of blood & bodily fluid contained with easy disposal
  • Supports 320 - 350 LBS (190.51 - 204.12 Kg) wet or dry
  • Leak proof backing for additional strength while dragging
