The Lifeline Pet Supplies Puppy Kitten Pet Incubator Icu with Digital Humidity System
Product Information -
Lifeline Pet Supplies Puppy Kitten Pet Incubator Icu Housing
- BPA free, acid-free, PVC free, lignin free, and recycle #5 safe for puppies, kittens, etc
- Lightweight design utilizes a two-part assembly
- The tray has 2 locking mechanisms on each side and is easy to clean/sterilize
PTC Forced Air Heater Fan
- PTC forced air heater fan distributes heat evenly throughout the incubator.
- PTC forced air heater fan design pulls in filtered room air, heats, then circulates internally
- Because of the circulating fresh air, there is virtually no chance of carbon dioxide build-up
- The forced air technology used in this unit is similar to that of units priced 2-3 times higher
Heater Fan Protection
- A stainless steel guard sterile dipped in black covers heat/electrical/fan parts inside
Digital Temperature Controller Box
- Automatically controls the internal environment temperature within 0.1F/0.1C
- Independent heating and cooling controls
- Built-In Low and High audible alarm that can be set to your liking or disabled
- Clear and precise instructions are printed on the top of the controller for quick reference
- Slide-n-Lock controller box design makes controllers easy to remove if needed
- Lighted on/off power switch with fuse and spare fuse included for electrical protection
- 6-foot power cord with US Style plug
Digital Humidity System
- Provides precise digital humidity control for the inside the incubator
- Engages or disengages the external humidity pump automatically by internal settings
- Humidity is critical for most animals to prevent dehydration in elevated temperatures
- Color-coded connections for ease of use and error-free installation
- Clear and precise instructions are printed on the top of the controller for quick reference
- Flexible and expandable tubing allows 5ft from incubator to pump
- The pump has auto-shutoff protection preventing the pump from running dry
Overheat Filtered Protection Fan
- Filtered overheat protection fan provides the capability to protect the unit from overheating
- Independent control over air circulation for the animals placed inside as they get older
- Can allow an increase in the number of air exchanges in the unit
- Can be used to dehumidify when animals inside are nearing the end of the incubation period
Please Note - Using the fan for dehumidification is an option when you are not using the humidity pump.
Filtered Fan Guards
- Dual filtered fan guards filter outside air protecting the unit from dust and contaminants
- Finger or paw guards cover the fans both inside and out
Built-In Cup Holders
- Two foldable adjustable cup holders are located on the back wall
- Allows use of a cup(s) of water with a sponge or rag inside for humidity
- Humidor jars can be used that will evaporate and help to manually control humidity
Please note - the cup holder method using two cups of water with a sponge or rag inside may work for some applications and environments depending upon the individual animals' needs and how well the unit is able to evaporate the water into the air. For most environments and newborn animals such as puppies and kittens, humidity is a critical component in keeping the animal healthy as low humidity levels can lead to dehydration. The add-on digital humidity system is included with this incubator and it allows precise digital control of the internal humidity level and ensures that the animal inside will not dehydrate. Generally, the unit should only be used without humidity for desert-type climate animals such as snakes or lizards where humidity is not critical and they are not at risk for dehydration.
Humidity Connection Port
- Humidity connection port is found on the right-hand side closest to the door
- Allows connection to tubing from the pump included in the digital humidity system (included with this unit)
- The black plug can easily be removed so you can connect directly to the humidity pump or you can also just remove the black plug for additional air circulation as needed.
Nebulizer Connection Port
- Used with our Nebulizer Connection Pack and Nebulizer pump (both purchased separately)
- Allows you to connect a nebulizer pump to the machine utilizing it as a nebulizing chamber
Please read the Nebulizer section of the add-on items for more information regarding nebulizers and their use.
Oxygen Connection Port
- This port is plugged as not all users will need to provide supplemental oxygen to the unit
- You may purchase a 2-way oxygen connection if you choose to use the unit with an oxygen concentrator (a 2-way oxygen connector is an add-on option and is now purchased separately)

Please Note: This incubator is not designed to "cool" it is not an air conditioner. It is designed to heat and is mainly used for newborn animals who cannot regulate their own body temperature. The recommended time frame for keeping animals in the incubator is 10-14 days. Animals older than this are putting off their own body temperature which will drastically affect how the unit functions. Placing adult animals inside the unit with the babies is not recommended. The unit is not capable of cooling under the room temperature it is kept in. Animals that are regulating their own body temperature will make the internal temperature rise and will affect the internal temperature the unit can cool down to. Please see the tab labeled 'Manuals and Instructions' for additional information on recommended temperature, oxygen, and humidity settings.
Additional Information: Bedding, pads, and additional attachments can be purchased here on our website at the time of purchase or separately. We are no longer including bedding with the purchase so it allows the user to choose their choice of bedding.
You DO NOT have to purchase any of the additional options offered to use the unit. The additional options simply enhance the functionality of the base unit and allow you additional functionality and use of the incubator turning it into a true portable intensive care unit.
- Exterior Dimensions: 21" L X 18.5" W X 21" H (Included the controller box(es) locked into the plate on the top of the incubator)
- Interior Dimensions: Measured At Floor - 18" L X 17" W X 16" H (Vet bedding not included in 16" height measurement - 13" H from the floor to the bottom of the heater guard which is about 5 inches by 5 inches square directly in the center of the incubator top)
- Door Dimensions: The door is clear with decorative dimples that allows you to see animals inside. It has a handle and security clip that latches to the incubator lip below. The door measurements are roughly 9" W X 10.5" H
- Please Note - The internal measurements are at the floor and the unit uses a 2 part assembly 1 top and 1 bottom or "tray" the tray has 2 locking mechanisms on each side. The tray also contours slightly upward which makes the actual dimensions about 19" L X 18" W about 2-3 inches above the floor. This is plenty of room for a litter of puppies and kittens for the first two weeks. The number of puppies or kittens that will fit in the unit will vary greatly depending upon breed type, the number of puppies or kittens, weight, and how fast they grow.
