I’ve partnered with Assisi Animal Health to bring you this post.
The Assisi Loop is a non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical healing device for pets.
It uses low-level pulses of energy to accelerate healing, reduce pain and reduce swelling, according to its developer, Assisi Animal Health.
The technology is based on the same treatment that is FDA cleared for humans.
You may remember I wrote a review of the Assisi Loop, and the company has a couple updates to its products, which you can read about below.
First, I thought I’d go over some of the common uses for the Loop.
Four common uses for the Assisi Loop
Since the Loop is designed to reduce inflammation and pain, Assisi said it can be effective for treating:
1. Osteoarthritis in aging animals
My 9-year-old Lab mix Ace has some arthritis/tendinitis in his knees and shoulders, so this is where the Loop has really benefited him.
The product is designed to increase blood flow and decrease inflammation, and it seems to offer my older dog some relief after trips to the dog beach or longer hikes.
2. Neurological inflammation
The Loop is able to help pets with neurological issues such as Wobblers Disease and Intervertebral Disc Disease. The Loop is excellent for reducing inflammation and pain, so any condition that is inflammatory and can fit inside the treatment field will benefit, according to Assisi.
3. Post-surgical pain and swelling
The Loop can help pets recovery faster from surgery or trauma, which I wrote about here. It even helped my dog’s paw heal when he had an infected nail bed, and I also placed the Loop over him when he had a hot spot to speed up the healing process.
4. Acute injuries
A fourth common use for the Loop is to help dogs with acute injuries that might occur during sports such as flyball, agility or other activities like playing at the dog park.

Below is a video which goes over the details on how the Loop works. It’s about 5 minutes and goes over some of the science behind the product. I found it helpful.
Recent updates – Assisi Loop 2.0!
The company is proud to announce several improvements to its existing product available July 20.
Here is a sneak peek!
1. A smaller option available – 10 cm
There will now be two sizes available, the original 20 cm diameter coil and a new 10 cm size.
The smaller option is designed for easier application when treating small animals or areas like knees or elbows. For example, the smaller size works well for treating my Lab Ace’s arthritis because it easily fits around a limb.
2. A tougher covering on the Loop’s coil
This will protect it against chewing or other damage.
If you would like to order a Loop, you can start the process by filling out the form here or by calling Assisi’s customer service at 415-814-2460. The cost for a Loop in either size is $289. Assisi will be able to help you obtain a prescription from your pet’s vet.
Do you think your dog or cat could benefit from the Loop?
