Therapik for Bites & Stings

Therapik® is a small, portable, hand-held, battery-powered device. It measures approximately 3cm x 3cm x 10cm and weighs less than four ounces, including the battery. The heat is initiated by use of a simple, non-locking, finger or thumb activated on/off switch. Heat is produced as long as the switch is depressed; when pressure on the switch is released, the circuit is interrupted and heat is no longer produced.

The source of the infrared heat is a small electric bulb with a nominal voltage rating of 5 volts. The bulb is driven by a user replaceable 9-volt alkaline battery, which effectively overdrives the bulb to produce an energy output of approximately 1.25 watts.

The mesh also avoids pushing a stinger further into the skin in the event that the stinger has been left behind in the wound. Thus, treatment may be initiated to inactivate the venom before attempting to remove the stinger.




Retrievers in the Field DVD

You can order direct or buy online through our PayPal Shopping Cart. Quick Dog Productions™ created 2 versions of Retrievers in the Field: From A Dog’s Perspective. A Standard version (approx. 40 min), uses training bumpers in the scenarios, and is designed for people who may be new at training retrievers, or are newly introduced to fieldwork. The Hunter’s version (approx. 50 min), shows traditional waterfowl training scenarios, and is for people familiar to the sport of hunting and competition retrieving. When ordering know that some of the produced scenes are similar in both versions. We recommend that Hunters or experienced handlers purchase the Hunter’s version. Family dog owners might want to select the Standard version.
