Sol Box Light Therapy for Dogs and Cats -- Treats Pet SAD
Is your cat or dog depressed? Many of us find our mood gets darker as the sunlight dims, but our pets may also suffer from seasonal affective disorder (SAD). Vets treat SAD in pets with Prozac or other related drugs.
Max Marvin, a 21-year-old entrepreneur, sought a natural treatment and has designed the Sol Box. This is a light therapy box geared to help pets receive adequate amounts of light to help balance their mood and their sleep-regulating hormones.
Pets generally gravitate on their own toward the light. The minimum effective dose is about 30 to 45 minutes exposure.
Sol Box should be available mid-November at Sol Box | Pawsitive Lighting retailing at $199. If that's a bit steep, there are plenty of affordable options along the same lines at Light Therapy | Amazon.
