Is your four-legged friend moody? Lethargic? A big, furry downer? Have you considered whether his mood correlates to how much sun he gets? Like humans, dogs and cats can be beneficially affected by sunlight, but as the seasons change, their exposure can diminish. But instead of booking a doggie-and-me trip to Bermuda, try out the Sol Box Simulated Sun. This light therapy device delivers the equivalent of a sunny day. You might just find that Fido’s energy increases, he’s less anxious, and he can sleep more soundly. Soon he’ll be barking Here Comes The Sun.
Place the box where your pet is comfortable. The minimum effective dose is about 30–45 minutes, but the device can be left on all day. Bright light therapy involves daily exposure to intense doses of white light in order to regulate seasonal mood swings, improve sleeping patterns, and produce a general sense of wellbeing in pets. According to medical researchers, bright light therapy systems with fluorescent light tubes are the preferred device for bright light therapy—with a recommended starting dose of 10,000 LUX for 30 minutes per day. (LUX measures the illumination intensity of light.)
Features: 10,000 LUX, medically certified, UV filtered. 1.7m cord.
