As a pet owner, it is important to understand the differences of acute and chronic inflammation in order to be aware of the warning signs. Once inflammation has been properly diagnosed, you can take the necessary steps to begin treatment. Assisi Animal Health discusses the differences between acute and chronic inflammation in pets.
Acute inflammation is the body's initial response to harmful stimuli, whereas chronic inflammation is a prolonged condition. In cases of acute inflammation, the immune system kicks in and sends out white blood cells to kill any harmful microbes. Acute inflammation can be caused by harmful bacteria or a tissue injury, such as minor abrasions and cuts. Inflammation starts immediately and is typically short-lived, lasting only a few days when treated properly.
Chronic Inflammation is a bit more complicated. It is generally the result of either an overactive immune system, infections from certain viruses, or persistent foreign bodies. This type of inflammation often occurs in the gastrointestinal system or around joints. Chronic inflammation is characterized by simultaneous destruction and healing of tissue and can persist for months or even years. In severe cases, chronic inflammation can even lead to necrosis. In cases of chronic inflammation, it is especially important to see a veterinarian for treatment.
There are various methods of treatment for both acute and chronic inflammation. Though acute will often go away on its own, it is important to monitor the condition to avoid it becoming long-term or chronic. . In the case of chronic inflammation, it is essential to explore treatment options with a veterinarian. Treatments can range from herbal supplements to surgery in extreme cases. The Assisi Loop is a highly effective clinical solution for treating inflammation in pets through the use of targeted pulsed electromagnetic field technology that can be directly applied over the inflamed site.
Assisi Animal Health's clinical solutions complete the Circle of Care® — the collaboration of veterinarians and owners in animal health and healing. Our company helps veterinary professionals and owners improve the quality of life for companion animals using the Assisi Loop, the non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical healing device that is based on the same FDA-cleared technology used on humans.
