And for cats, equine, sharks, birds……..all have been treated with the Assisi Animal Health tPEMF Loop (targeted Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy). This is an amazing alternative and non invasive therapy that can be used on all animals for acute onset and/or chronic painful conditions, such as osteoarthritis (OA).
This technology is FDA approved for use in humans and actually started out as a human medical device, designed specifically for cancer patients who had undergone mastectomies. The loop was used to reduce inflammation, increase blood and lymph flow and facilitate more rapid healing of the surgical wound while reducing the amount of pain medicine the patient needed to take. The loop works the same way on animals and is an excellent incremental modality for any animal that has had a surgical procedure and requires wound healing.
In addition, it is incredibly helpful for any animal suffering from the aches and pains of old age or degenerative diseases. I have used the loop on two of my labs, Kahuna and Forrest for the last 3 years. It has been a miracle for both of them but particularly Forrest who, at 15 years old, suffers from Osteoarthritis, Osteochondritis Dissecan (OCD) of his hock, elbow and hip dysplasia, and ventral spoldylosis. Forrest’s mobility has slowly decreased in recent months, however he maintained very good mobility through his 14th year, walking 1/4 mile + and swimming multiples times a day (getting out of the pool takes effort!) Here is a picture of Forrest sporting several loops. I usually have six on him at once – one around his neck, two on each elbow, one on the left hock and one on each hip.
These are available through your vet with a prescription and can be administered in your home by you. A loop has approximately 150 15 minute applications and can last for several months,depending on how often you use it.
