Animals are instinctively drawn to sunlight as a source of nurturance. Dogs, and especially cats, are notorious sunbathers. That's why the makers of Fauna Sauna are on to something. Fauna Sauna uses the same radiant heat that the sun produces, minus the sun's damaging ultraviolet rays, to bring healing to your pet right in your home.
Far infrared heat, also known as radiant heat, has been used in medicine for more than 100 years. It has been applied to humans and animals as therapy for joint and muscle pain due to arthritis or overuse, therapy for stress, and for healing skin wounds and infections.
Far infrared can penetrate up to two inches of skin, muscles, and joints, increasing circulation and cell regeneration in damaged tissue. Until recently, far infrared technology has only been used in therapeutic settings. Some home saunas for humans are now utilizing far infrared technology, but Fauna Sauna is the first pet far infrared device for the home. You will notice that it is totally open, unlike human saunas, so air circulation and pet claustrophobia are not issues you need to fear. Fauna Sauna weighs less than 10 pounds and can be set up and moved as desired throughout the house or where your pet hangs out most.
One of the beauties of far infrared heat is that it warms objects, not environments so, no, Fauna Sauna will not heat your home. The Sauna doesn't even get warm until your pet enters its sphere. You are advised not to place your pet in front of the Fauna Sauna, but to let him discover it himself. Whether it takes a day or a few weeks, your pet will eventually discover the benefits of Fauna Sauna for herself and begin making regular visits, staying for minutes or hours at a time, deciding how close or how far from the heat source she wants to lie. (Radiant heat is very energy efficient so you don't need to worry about even higher energy bills.) The Fauna Sauna is not cheap; the Fauna Sauna Classic costs $595, its Pro version is $695. But the Fauna Sauna comes with a lifetime warranty and a 60 day trial period so you can see if it provides the results your pet needs.
You have to admit, it looks pretty enticing. I want to crawl up next to Fauna Sauna myself! That's the buzz for today!
