Easy Step-By-Step Procedure For Use: 1.

Secure the patient's head by tying it up or placing the animal in cross-ties.


Brush any dirt from the head and loosen the halter one or two notches.


Pre-warm the appliance by plugging it in and placing it on the high setting for a few minutes.


Fasten the hood comfortably on the patient using the Velcro straps.


Turn the switch to the high setting for the initial ten minutes of infrared therapy.


Watch the animal closely for any signs of fear or discomfort from the hood being too snug.


After the initial ten minutes of infrared therapy, turn the heat to the low setting and maintain this setting until the therapy session is completed.


Disinfect the inside of the hood after each use and allow it to dry completely before storage.


If necessary, sponge off the animal's head after treatment
