Assisi Loop – What is tPEMF and How Can it Help My Dog?

Note: Assisi Animal Health and I have partnered together to bring you this post and giveaway.

We’re giving away a FREE Assisi Loop valued at $289 (prescription required). Leave a comment to enter. Click here.

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

Assisi Loop 2.0

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:

  • arthritis
  • 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.

My review of the Assisi Loop

What can the Loop help with?

  1. To be honest, I don’t want it for one of my pets. They’re both pain free. But a friend’s dog has been going through a really rough time with pain and a herniated disc and the like. I would love to give it to help with her dog’s pain.

  2. You’re inspiring! I took seek out every non-invasive options for my dog too! I am healing my dog’s cruciate ligament injury through natural remedies, therapies and conservative management. The loop would be a great addition to our regiments. Thank you for all you do for dogs.

  3. We almost lost our Maltese mix Oreo when he got an infection when he was neutered. it was so painful to see him in agony & not being able to help him. Our peekapoo Charlie has arthritis in his hips & we just want to carry him everywhere so he isn’t suffering.

  4. I love that it is without side effects and lets you administer the therapy at home. Our dog is dealing bilateral hip dysplasia and it his gate is now affecting his lower back. Chiropractic and physical therapy are very helpful but they mean 2-4 hours in the car to reach a facility that offers the treatment and they are fare from inexpensive.

  5. I would give this to my mom for her setter that is always in pain in one of her hocks. She takes anti inflammatories and glucosamine but this would help so much more

  6. I don’t want it for my dogs. I want it for another senior dog at my local shelter where I’m a volunteer.

  7. Sue Donnelly and Scooby

    I do not need the loop..but want you to know I feel your to trust your vet..your heart will tell you answers..just sleep on your ya Ace!!!xoxoxo

  8. Id love to win for my moms 13 year old Chocolate lab Maddie
    This sweet girl, is the best and deserves the most comfort and happiness!

  9. i am very familiar with the loop. i have used it on my older gal for her back. so sorry to hear abt Ace. i know how it is when your babies are hurting and sick. i have been thru alot with my older gal this past 2 yrs. vestibular 2, disc, hospitalized for 5 days, several trips to the er, almost blind, deaf, dementia. she is almost 15 yrs old. i cry all of the time, i have had her since she was 6 wks old. we have been thru a lot together.

  10. I have 3 geriatric dogs that could all use this and there’s no provider that sells them within over a 100 miles. I’ve got 13 & 14 yo border collies and a 16 yo jack-a-poo all with arthritis and joint issues from years of agility training and competing.

      Hi Tammy. I’ll enter you in the giveaway. If you don’t win and want to order, Assisi can help you through that process. You would need a prescription and then could order it directly through Assisi.

  11. I would love to have this for our dear old Jazz, she’s a 13-1/2 year old German Shepherd. She is so sweet and never complains, but you can tell she’s uncomfortable.

  12. I have a 12 year old chocolate lab who just got diagnosed with diabetes. She is now blind. She also has arthritis in her hips. I think this would help her a lot.

  13. lisa and fiona fog

    We love the loop. We have been treating our dane successfully (and without other meds) for more than 2 years. We would love to win a loop! Only feedback : the new 2.0 model is just a little smaller than the original. Wish it was a bit bigger because i would like it to sit lower on her neck.

  14. I am very interested in this product. My dog has been battling kidney disease for the past few months and may have stomach malignancy as well. she is suffering with hip dysplasia/arthritis but cannot take any medications because of her kidney disease. she is miserable and having a very hard time moving around. this seems like a wonderful alternative to ease her suffering and help make her remaining time more comfortable

  15. I would love to receive a free loop. I have a 14 year old cat with arthritis in her back.

    Thank you!

  16. My 2 Boston terriers are almost crippled from arthritis. Methylpred,tramadol etc have not helped . I know this electromagnetic device will work because occupational therapy has been using one on my hand where I ruptured the tendons in my hand . Had surgical repair and this device similar to the tens unit really helped post op function. Muscle stimulation tingling shocks etc

    Wow!! This looks amazing! I would love to try it on my dogs. My oldest is Bindi, a 13 year old Great Pyrenees. She has Cushing’s, Arthritis, and nerve degeneration in her hind end. She is still hanging in there, but could definitely use some pain relief. Bella is my 3 1/2 year old Great Pyrenees rescue. She was born with congenital severely luxating patellas. By the time I got her, her legs had atrophied making it impossible to extend her rear legs. Although we tried surgery, it was unfortunately unsuccessful. She gets around the house just fine, but the was she “bunny hops” has put strain on her front legs making them very sore. My latest rescue is a 4 month old Great Pyrenees that was hit by car and suffered a broken hip. Her original owners didn’t treat her or take her to the vet, so by the time I got her, she had been living with a broken hip for 3 weeks. She had to have FHO surgery, and luckily is recovering well, but could use some help with healing. As you can see, The Loop is much needed at our house. 🙂

  18. My lab has an arthritic ankle, and my newfy had 2 tplo surgeries for torn acl’s. I have researched the assi loop, and would love to try it for both dogs.

    Hi. My Penny is a four year old hound/”Buick” mix who weighs 70 pounds. She has an irreparabley torn ACL, and is not a candidate for surgery because of her joints are severely arthritic. She has had NSAIDs injections and laser treatments to no avail. She can barely get up. She rests every after every five or so steps she takes. She can not play. She takes tramodal and Rimadyl for pain. A blood test revealed that she also has a thyroid problem. I am despately searching for pain relief for my speckled baby girl. We rescued (foster failures!) her. Is there anything you can suggest that will allow her to live like the young dog she is? Many thanks.

  21. My Denali would love this! She is 14 and on arthuritis medication. Other than stiffness of the joints she is very healthy and active and would LOVE longer journeys on the trails. She is my golden treasure.

  22. My dog Kat is starting to show signs of this. I have her on glucosamine and exercise her. This would help tremendously.

  23. If you met Gamer you’d fall in love just like we did. We are foster failures. He was 5-7 yrs old, 5 yrs ago. He came with an injury which required surgery, and now he has arthritis. Also cancer diagnosed almost 2 yrs ago. He is Golden Retriever sweet, and happy and sometimes has pain. When he limps we all hurt to the bone. I would rather not use NSAIDS, the Assisi loop may be the answer!

  24. I would love to win this for my dog Piccolo.
    He just celebrated his 12th birthday on Feb 19,
    and he has spent 10 of those years on three legs.
    His right front leg ( & shoulder) was amputated on March 1
    2006. He had been hit by a car & no one got him any help.
    I rescued him 2 months later, as soon as he was healed.He now is on medication & supplements for arthritis/ joint pain but he still loves life & looks forward to his daily walk. Last spring I got him a wagon so that if he gets tired I can wheel him home. I do range of motion / stretching exercises with him every morning but I am always looking for new ways to keep him comfortable & happy. Thank you for this opportunity to try an Assisi Loop!

  25. I think this could be a wonderful adjunct therapy for my 7 1/2 year old German short-haired pointer. He is starting to show some pretty good signs of painful arthritis in his back legs already. He has been so active his whole life, and still wants to be – but now pays for it later. His hindquarters shake and tremble at times when he stands. He is on high dose glucosamine/chondroitin but at this point we are not using daily NSAIDS, trying to wait on this until really needed for pain control.

  26. My 13.5 year old Golden girl Nugget needed surgery to remove a large lump….she has arthritis on her spine and has trouble getting up when she is laying….I feel this could truly help her!

  27. would be extremely interested in trying this product on our 12 year old Great Dane who suffers from arthritis as well as hemangiosarcoma cancer. we have tried laser therapy in the past but have had no luck. we are using Chinese herbs currently in addition to prescription antiinflammatories to keep him as pain free as possible. would be excellent to taper off medication if this product does indeed work!

  28. I’d love one to help Sampson! My vet has already said she’d give me a prescription for it, but with my hours just being cut and all the other vet bills we have, I can’t swing the price of it right now.

    Sampson had ACL surgery two years ago and just a few weeks ago did a partial tear on his ‘good’ leg. Since he has a heart murmur and irregular heart beat, surgery is off the table. We are doing acupuncture and various supplements and the tPEMF in our area is 25 miles away and $70 per session which I can’t do right now. I would really love to win one of these.

  29. I have a 10 year old GSD that has arthritis. I would live to try this for her. She’s my world & deserves anything extra I can do for her.

  30. Yes this sounds like it would help my Ginger. She has arthritis in her leg. Poor girl. I’m interested to see if your product will help her!

  31. Both of my older dogs were rescued from a puppy mill so their breeding is the worst! My GSD will be 12 next month and her hips and knees are bad then my Chihuahua will be 11 and both her knees are shot! We are waiting for surgery to be done on the Chihuahua. I would love too find something that would ease their pain without drugs.

  32. I would love to be able to try this for my 3 yr. old, 250 pound Mastiff. He had a TPLO on his left leg over a year ago and has still not fully recovered. He is on a combination of gabapentin and tramadol daily as he’s not able to tolerate any NSAID’s. We’ve done physical therapy and hydrotherapy with little improvement. He also has a partial tear in his other leg that we have put off having surgery on but at 250 pounds I’m terrified that the other leg is going to go any day. It breaks my heart to see him in pain and I don’t want him to be dependent on pain meds for the rest of his life.

  33. I would love to See a friend’s dog win a loop. Shay adopted Buddy when he was near death and has given him everything he needs to be as healthy as possible, but he is now suffering from a liver tumor and the loop would help woth his pain and healing from surgery

  34. I would love to see Buddy The Christmas Husky win a loop. He has been through so much. He just had surgery to remove his spleen and is living with a liver tumor that they couldn’t take out. I am sure the loop would help a lot with his recovery.

  35. I would like Buddy The Christmas Husky to receive the loop for he has just gone through surgery and we think this would help him so so much. Here is a clip from his page ( The doctor just called with an update. The aspirates that they took from the lumps yesterday came back as benign cysts! Nothing to worry about from those!
    Buddy will be the last surgery of the day, they will have plenty of time to work on him.
    They also asked if I would give consent for Buddy to join a study to help other dogs. They will take samples of his spleen when it is removed and blood samples every day that he is in the hospital to help find a way to diagnose splenic tumors earlier. I know that Buddy would love to be able to help another dog not have to go though this.
    As soon as I hear anything else I will update you!
    Thank you all so much! ❤)
    Thank you
    Ralf,Ken Keysha,Struga & Willow

    I would like Buddy the Christmas Husky to receive the loop because he had surgery, but the doctors couldn’t remove the liver tumor. I think the loop would help him a lot. Thank you. ☺

  37. Buddy the Christmas Husky could truly benefit from your awesome product. Please consider him for your give away.

  38. This would be wonderful for buddy the Christmas husky, he has been through so much, and now he has had surgery, besides having cancer. I feel he is a perfect fit for this.

  39. I don’t want it for my dog but for Buddy the Christmas husky. He went through so many things and a surgery.

  40. Kerry Mc Brearty

    I recommend “Buddy – The Christmas Husky” for the loop. He had major surgery to remove his spleen that had a tumor and has another tumor in his liver that can’t be removed. Buddy is a rescue and has ongoing health problems. You can read his story on his Facebook page.

  41. This would be a healing gift for Buddy the Christmas Husky. He has been through so much. He has just had surgery to try to remove a tumor from his liver (which it turns out is inoperable because of its location in the liver).
