Normotherm Infrared Heaters

Normotherm™ is changing the future of animal health, comfort and perioperative care . . . For years, veterinarians, scientists, and laboratory technicians have struggled with achieving and maintaining normothermia of animals in clinical and laboratory settings. Heating pads, hot water bottles, space heaters and a myriad of other methods have always provided inconsistent results, at times even resulting in injury to animals through over heating, burns, or other undesirable effects.

Normotherm’s unique emitter technology provides far infrared heat, the only heat that is completely safe and healthy for all animals. Eighty percent of the sun’s rays fall into the infrared range, providing the warmth that all life on earth requires. Far infrared heat therapy has been used medically for humans for over 100 years. Now, with Normotherm, the same benefits are available to the veterinary and laboratory animal sciences.

The Normotherm™ Dual Panel Infrared Warming System can take the place of all other warming devices. With our varied mounting options and quick release Kennel Gear mounting system, there is no limit to the uses of Normotherm.

Britz and Company is proud to manufacture and market the Normotherm™ Infrared product under licenses with Wavemaker, LLC. Additional details on the Normotherm™ can found at

Features & Benefits

Up to 90% of far infrared heat is absorbed by the body, compared to only 20% of heat generated by other methods, making far infrared warming the most efficient means to heat the body. While traditional heating methods such as heating pads, hot water bottles, or blowers often provide inconsistent results, Normotherm provides the most effective form of heat for intraopertive and postoperative use.

Normotherm is the solution to post anesthesia dysphoria. Studies reveal that FIR increases metabolism, thereby speeding the release and discharge of anesthetics and toxins, which aid in faster recovery.

Studies also show that FIR is the most effective way to achieve and maintain vasodilation and eliminate heat loss in rodents and other animals, thereby allowing researchers more time for procedures under more humane conditions.

Far Infrared radiant heat therapy is an alternative modality or treatment for animals in many areas, including:

  • Arthritis Stiffness
  • Joint or other injuries
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Skin irritations, infections and hot spots
  • Swelling or edema
  • Healing wounds, surgical or otherwise
  • Stress and anxiety

It’s also silent, operates for pennies a day, is easy to clean and has no disposables. Normotherm. . . Simply the best, healthiest way to provide heat to animals.
