If you have ever had a pet in pain, then you know as an owner how helpless it makes you feel. My cat has arthritis and my heart used to break when I watched her take our stairs, one at a time, in such an awkward manner. Although this article is about PEMF therapy for dogs, the information applies to all of your furry friends. I have been treating my cat for arthritis with my Rife PEMF and I can personally say that I am astounded by the difference in her.
Here is some of the information on how and why PEMF therapy for dogs and other animals offers an effective and affordable pain therapy alternative for your pets.
Why PEMF therapy for Dogs?
PEMF therapy has successfully been used for a variety of conditions in humans and these benefits seem to be available to your pets too. From PEMF therapy for arthritis, to TENS therapy for back pain, TENS and PEMF machines are becoming a very popular alternative for controlling pain and treating various conditions in humans and animals. The FDA has even cleared numerous PEMF and TENS devices for veterinary use.
To date, the studies on PEMF and TENS have found them to be safe and also relatively side-effect free. The same cannot always be said for medication. Although there are a number of drugs that can help to reduce pain in your pets, the cost of the drugs and their side-effects should not be overlooked. New warnings on NSAIDS for humans must alert us to the fact that drugs are not always as safe as they seem.
Medication comes with the extra complication of trying to ensure your pet gets its recommended daily dose of medication. If you have cats like mine, trying to get them to take tablets can be a life-threatening exercise for both the pet involved and the pet owner – namely me J.
TENS and PEMF therapy on the other hand is simple. I just place the PEMF MAT in my pet’s bed and start the device when I go to bed. My cat receives PEMF therapy while sleeping and I get to enjoy another scratch free day.
How PEMF Therapy for Dogs can be helpful
This type of therapy increases the amount of nitric oxide in the circulatory system. Nitric oxide supports the healing of tissues and bones and by supporting and promoting the healing process, the duration of pain is shortened.
PEMF also reduces inflammation which is one of the direct causes of pain. Inflammation is the process that causes injuries to swell, go red and feel painful. By reducing inflammation and the inflammatory response at the site of the injury, the intensity of the pain and the duration of the pain can be reduced.
Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy also improves circulation. Once again, circulation is a vital element for healing and by increasing circulation, you increase nutrients and oxygen provided to the area that needs to be healed. This in turn reduces the healing time and therefore the pain associated with the condition or injury.
TENS and PEMF are also effective at providing drug free pain relief. In fact, many devices are now prescribed by medical practitioners and vets specifically for pain relief where other therapy options are not available or where other types of therapy have been ineffective.
Human studies and PEMF Therapy for Dogs
Sadly, studies on the reduction of pain by PEMF therapy for dogs are lacking, but there is probably a very reasonable explanation. We may feel a telepathic bond with our dogs, but trying to determine a reduction of pain on a clinical basis may prove a little difficult when you have to rely on the dog’s perception of pain, and their ability to rate their pain on a scale of one to ten, not to mention the fact they would also have to tell you about it. But that doesn’t mean there are no studies at all.
Studies on dogs are limited to prostate conditions and osteoarthritis and pain but these studies have shown how effective PEMF therapy for dogs can be. There are also studies on PEMF therapy for pain in humans, and these studies have shown that PEMF therapy is an effective alternative for pain management. And then there are our clients, like this delightful Boerboel who is enjoying his weekly Rife PEMF therapy.
In fact, we have had so many Rife PEMF owners tell us that they sometimes have to fight their pets for a chance on the Rife PEMF machine, that we have launched a PEMF MAT specifically for pets. The MAT makes it even easier to treat your cat or dog with PEMF therapy. My cats love the MAT and they literally jostle for position when we run the arthritis and pain frequencies.
PEMF Therapy for Dogs – other Conditions
The benefits of TENS and PEMF therapy for dogs are not only limited to pain control for your pet either. PEMF and TENS therapy can be effective as an adjunctive therapy or an alternative therapy for:
Dogs don’t suffer from some of the conditions above but they do suffer from conditions like arthritis and improving circulation and health can only be good for your pet.
