Pawsitive Lighting Treatment

Nippers Corner Pet Medical Center

Boosted Energy

This treatment helps your pet be more active and energetic. It does this by encouraging the brain to release the hormone serotonin, which elevates mood and energy levels.

 

Better Sleep

Just like with people, light therapy can help with sleep problems. Through exposure to light from the Sol Box at certain times, your pet will develop a correct circadian rhythm. This helps animals be more energetic in the morning and ready for rest at night.

 

Encourages Calming and Improved Mental Health

When a pet doesn’t get enough sunlight, his hormones serotonin and melatonin can become unbalanced. This can lead to depression, anxiety and aggression in your pet. A study in the Applied Animal Behaviour Science journal found that aggressive dogs had much lower amounts of serotonin in their blood than dogs that behaved in a healthy way. Since light can increase levels of serotonin, it can help with mood and behavioral issues.

 

Improved Moods

Sunlight is a natural antidepressant and mood booster for animals and their human parents. In the same way, light therapy from the Sol Box can boost mood to help your companion have a happier life overall.
