Ace is not feeling well.
The poor guy will need a second surgery to remove a foreign body or damaged tissue from his hip area.
This will be his second surgery in three months, and I feel so bad for him. Can any of you relate? It’s so hard when our pets are sick or hurting.
Ace is on pain medication, of course, but a device we’ve been using to help him feel better in addition to medication is the Assisi Loop, which we wrote about last week.
The Assisi Loop is a non-pharmaceutical, anti-inflammatory device (NPAID) for pets. It can be used in addition to or separately from pain medications.
Today I want to focus more on how the Loop works using tPEMF. I will also answer any of your questions about the Loop. Leave them in the comments or email Lindsay@ThatMutt.com.
So what the heck is tPEMF? What does it mean for a dog’s recovery?
I learned from Assisi Animal Health that tPEMF is:
The Loop’s targeted PEMF signal delivers health-enhancing electromagnetic fields to a pet’s challenged cells and tissues, according to Assisi.
In the past I used the Loop to help reduce pain and inflammation related to Ace’s arthritis, but more recently the Loop helped him heal and recover from surgery and manage the pain associated with his hip.
The Loop is non-invasive and able to treat over bandages, casts and fur. The Loop has ZERO side effects, something you can’t say about most drugs.
Here’s a video that clearly describes how the Loop works.
If you watch just the first 2 minutes or so, you’ll have a better understanding of what the Loop can do.
Read more about the science behind the Loop here.
Since decreasing inflammation is an important first step to healing, the Loop can help animals with many different issues, according to Assisi.
Those issues could include:
- wound healing
- muscle strains and more
What questions do you guys have about the Loop?
I’m aware it takes time to process and fully understand how the Loop works if you’re not familiar with the technology. I had to study it and ask a lot of questions myself when first introduced to the product.
Today, I believe it is beneficial for my dog and we continue to use the Loop as needed. My husband has even used it on his own sore knee!
Go ahead and leave your questions in the comments and I’ll get them answered.
Here are a few I’ve been asked so far:
How do I use the Loop? Is it easy to use?
It’s very simple to use. Simply place the Loop on or around the affected area (such as your dog’s hip or back) and keep it in place for 15 minutes. The Loop doesn’t make any noise, and your pet is unlikely to feel anything.
The Loop blinks a green light when it’s on so you know it’s doing its job. The Loop automatically shuts off after 15 minutes. You can put your dog’s limbs right through the Loop or place it around your pet’s neck or body.
How do I get a Loop?
One of the most common questions I received is where do I get one?
The Loop is available through some veterinary practices. If your vet doesn’t carry the Loop, you can get a prescription and order directly through Assisi.
Assisi will ship anywhere in the world with a prescription. The customer would be responsible for any international shipping fees or other taxes/fees.
What is the cost of the Loop?
The Loop is $289 (including shipping & handling in U.S.) when you order from Assisi Animal Health.
That sounds like a lot of money, but remember the Loop lasts about 150 15-minute sessions. That ends up being about $1.93 per session.
Some pet insurance plans will cover the cost of a Loop, so if you have pet insurance it is worth asking about.
