Magnetic Therapy For Dog Arthritis

In our previous post titled Dog Arthritis And Magnetic Therapy, we looked at the causes of arthritis in dogs and the early warning signs of onset of arthritis in dogs. In this post, we will look at the immune mediated arthritis and how magnetic therapy can be used to control dog arthritis.

Immune Mediated Arthritis

The immune mediated arthritis is caused by antibodies that attack a dog’s own connective tissue resulting in either an erosive arthritis or a non-erosive arthritis.

Erosive arthritis damages a dog’s cartilage and joint surfaces. Non-erosive arthritis causes inflammation in the joints but it does not destroy connective tissue.

Rheumatoid arthritis is an erosive arthritis that occurs to a large extent in small dogs. Non-erosive arthritis largely occurs in midsize to large sized dogs.

Magnetic therapy for treating dog arthritis

The pet magnetic bed from Woolrest BioMag called the PetMag consists of powerful permanent magnets embedded in luxurious Australian wool to emit beneficial static magnetic fields that your dog is exposed to when it sleeps on the pet magnetic bed.

The static magnetic fields reduces the inflammation and improves the blood circulation in the arthritis affected areas in the dog, mainly the joints. This improved blood circulation helps carry nutrients and more oxygen to the affected regions thus reducing the inflammation and easing the pain.

Magnetic therapy in dogs is ideal for fracture healing. The effect of static magnetic fields increases the calcium ions concentration at the fractured area and formation of the callus that helps in effective healing of fractures.

In addition to this, magnetic therapy helps in restoring the pet’s body to a balanced energy state and helps in improving the dog’s metabolism. Apart from treating canine arthritis, magnetic therapy helps in alleviating other disorders like hip dysplasia, osteochondritis, arthritis of the spine, vertebral problems and chronic pain disorders.

Advantages of magnetic therapy for dog arthritis treatment

Magnetic therapy is a safe alternative treatment for dog arthritis that is non-invasive and avoids use of powerful drugs that produce harmful side effects. It is also a cost effective treatment saving pet owners expensive vet and drug bills.

Magnetic therapy helps alleviate the pain characteristic of arthritis in dogs. Magnetic therapy in  combination with conventional fracture healing techniques helps in the healing of fractures in pets with complete union of the fracture where the ends of the fracture heal very well. Generally in a non-union fractures, the ends of the fracture do not heal and the bone endings remain.

It is strongly advised that pet owners contact a veterinarian before subjecting their dog or cat to magnetic therapy treatment. A vet can also suggest the correct strength of magnets to be used in the pet magnetic bed to give the pets total relief from dog arthritis pain or cat pain relief.

Dog Arthritis And Magnetic Therapy

Arthritis in dogs is a degenerative condition that affects adult dogs of all ages and breeds. Normally, one in five adult dogs in the US is affected by arthritis. Large breed dogs are affected more than the small dogs. Heavier dogs feel the symptoms of arthritis more on ligaments and joints due to their weight.

Causes of dog arthritis

Most cases of dog arthritis are inherited orthopedic diseases like hip dysplasia, injury in the joints or osteochondrosis. A few cases of arthritis are due to infection of the joints.

Signs of arthritis in dogs

As dogs cannot verbally express their predicament like humans, the onus is upon dog owners to look out for early warning signs of arthritis in dogs including subtle changes. Some of the indicators  of arthritis which dog owners have to keep their eyes peeled for are:

  • Tendency of the dog to use a particular limb more than others
  • Lameness, stiffness and joint pain especially on waking up in the morning
  • Tendency to take more naps than normal
  • Hesitation in climbing stairs, jumping or running
  • Gaining weight
  • Less inclined to play or indulge in physical activity
  • Behavioral changes
  • Attitudinal changes
  • Reduction in alertness levels

If a dog owner can see any of these symptoms over a period of fifteen days, then it is best to take his/her pet to the veterinarian and get a physical examination done and also X-ray analysis. Early diagnosis and a proper plan of treatment is crucial to effective management of canine arthritis.

Osteoarthritis treatment in dogs

Osteoarthritis in dogs is degenerative disease of the joints. Although joint disease cannot be cured, it can be controlled through proper treatment that is made up of physical therapy and weight control.

Conventional medicines in the form of analgesics and corticosteroids can help provide pain relief but also create a host of harmful side effects in your dear dog. Alternative treatments like magnetic therapy for dogs and acupuncture provide excellent drug free pain relief minus the expensive drugs and harmful side effects.

It is of utmost importance to consult a veterinarian before subjecting the dog to magnetic therapy treatment.

Monitored physical activity key to canine arthritis control

Exercise that is moderated and monitored by veterinary physical therapists is a key factor in controlling the spread of arthritis. Exercise helps the dog in maintaining muscle mass and the flexibility of joints. Swimming is an excellent activity that achieves such results without placing stress on the joints.

Owners should avoid exercising their arthritic dogs in excess as it can create more problems in future. Dogs with arthritis should not be allowed to jump up and down. Moreover, they should be exercised on a harness.

Application Of Magnetic Therapy In Pets

Pet magnetic therapy has been bolstered over the years with a lot of scientific research proving the efficacy of magnetic therapy in treating physical ailments in dogs, cats and horses without causing any harmful side effects and sans expensive invasive surgery.

Types of magnets used in pet magnetic therapy

In magnetic therapy for pets, as in humans, static magnetic fields and pulsed magnetic fields are used. Static magnets can be embedded in wraps and strapped around the injured region of your pet’s body. Alternatively, pets are made to sleep on a pet magnetic bed interspersed with powerful static magnets.

The magnets themselves are of the order of 250 gauss to 2500 gauss. Generally the magnets are uni directionally applied to the body with the negative north pole attributed to majority of the healing. The south pole is a good stimulant for tissue growth.

In recent times, the introduction of bipolar magnets has added a new dimension to magnetic therapy. Bipolar magnets have repeatable north/south polarity on the same side of the magnet when conventionally the north and south poles are located on different sides of the magnet.

In short, recommendations vary when it comes to placing magnets in the injured region of your pet’s body. Either the magnet’s north or south pole can be placed in a direction north or south of the injury. From a vet’s perspective, many agree that only the north pole should be allowed to come in contact with the skin.

How magnetic therapy is applied with pets

It is of primary importance to consult a veterinarian and have your pet dog or cat checked thoroughly before subjecting your pet to magnetic therapy treatment.

Static magnets when applied to the pet’s acupuncture points helps stimulate these points. This is very effective for treating pet musculoskeletal problems such as arthritis in dogs especially affecting the back, knees and elbows. It is effective for treating hip dysplasia.

Advantages of pet magnetic bed over magnetic wraps

Pets are active and frisky and it is hard to keep them down in one place. Wraps with static magnets embedded in them can be strapped around the injured region of your pet’s body. The constant movement of the pet makes it hard for the wraps to stay attached to its body.

A pet magnetic bed is ideal especially for hyperactive pets and large dogs affected by arthritis. These pet magnetic beds or PetMags consist of luxurious Australian wool embedded strategically with static magnets help your pet canine or feline get the best possible exposure to beneficial static magnetic fields and providing drug free pain relief from dog arthritis or injuries.

After lying on these pet magnetic beds, you will be surprised to see a marked improvement in energy levels of your dear dog or cat and they can move around freely without experiencing the dreadful arthritis pain. They also get the benefit of a sound night’s sleep. Constant exposure to magnetic fields improves the healing of your pet’s arthritis.

Magnetic Therapy For Pets

Magnetic therapy for pets has become very popular form of alternative treatment to relieve your pet dog or cat of arthritis and provide drug free pain relief. Both static magnetic fields and pulsed magnetic fields have been used effectively to treat pets with drastic improvement in their physical condition.

Pet magnetic therapy treatment Vs Conventional treatment

Conventional treatment offers pets pain relief through powerful drugs which may cause other harmful side effects.

The problem cited by the scientific and medical community for treating pets with magnetic therapy is the belief heat needs to be generated to cause biological action and that static or pulsed magnetic fields are not capable of solving pet pain problems.

The medical community is especially fond of citing placebo effect when it comes to pain relief in humans undergoing magnetic therapy treatment. But pet owners have seen their loved pets move about freely once they have started sleeping on their pet magnetic bed. Animals cannot understand the placebo effect concept.

But research has proved otherwise showing the beneficial effects of magnetic therapy for alleviating pain in pets. Experimental research done on rats and mice clearly indicate the biological effects wrought by magnetic therapy in animals. This research has extended to other animals like horses, dogs, cats, pigs, birds etc.

Relation between pets and human biology

Research indicates clearly that biology of both pets and humans are affected by electromagnetic fields (EMFs). Even though tests are done on animals before implementing treatments in humans, it may not be true in all the cases. Results are bound to vary depending on the species treated and the effects that are being monitored.

Research models for specific diseases affecting specific species of animals have a strong correlation to human biology and function, especially  at the cellular level. Some of the diseases that need mention are heart diseases in dogs, canine arthritis, cancers in mice etc.

In most cases, treatments that work in animals will work in humans as well. In conventional medicine, drugs are tested first on animals and if there is a positive reaction, then depending on the appropriateness of the treatment, it is used in humans.

Pets react positively to magnetic therapy

Pet magnetic therapy in the form of static magnetic fields was first used in the US and horses were the first recipients of this magnetic therapy treatment. Over time, pulsed magnetic fields were also used to treat horses.

With magnetic therapy increasing in prominence, the results clearly showed that static magnets embedded in blankets were wrapped around horses having acute pain problems.

This alleviated the pain so dramatically that horses were saved from undergoing surgery or escaped euthanasia. The confirmation of this result came from a veterinarian at a conference at the North America Academy of Magnetic Therapy.
