The new ‘Fauna Sauna’ uses radiant energy to provide deep penetrating, healing warmth for cats and dogs.

Your pets instinctively find the sunny spot on the floor. So why not provide them with year-round radiant warmth? The inventors of the Fauna Sauna have done just that.

The device uses the same radiant heat the sun produces, minus the sun's damaging ultraviolet rays. It brings healing to your pets as therapy for joint and muscle pain due to arthritis or overuse, therapy for stress, and for healing skin wounds and infections.

Far infrared, or radiant heat, can penetrate up to 2 inches of skin, muscles and joints, increasing circulation and cell regeneration in damaged tissue. And the device is totally open, unlike human saunas, so air circulation and pet claustrophobia are not issues. Fauna Sauna weighs less than 10 pounds, and can be set up and moved to any desired location.

Since radiant heat warms objects, not environments, the device will not heat your home. In fact, the sauna doesn't even get warm until your pet enters its sphere.

According to the company, 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.”

The Fauna Sauna Classic costs $595; its Pro version is $695. It comes with a lifetime warranty and a 60-day trial period. For more information, visit
