Manx cats are born with either no tail or only a small section of one. For most Manx cats, this tail defect does not affect their daily lives. However, some are born with what is referred to as Manx Syndrome. This painful condition associates the tail abnormality with severe spinal deformities that cause pain and both bladder and bowel incontinence, among other symptoms. To combat this issue and keep Manx cats as pain-free as possible, Assisi Animal Health has compiled a list of the top three treatment options for this disease:

1. Medication. Speak to a veterinarian about the best way to incorporate medication to your cat's daily routine. For some cats, painkillers and/or steroids are more effective. For others, issues stemming from severe inflammation can be remedied with NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs).

2. Diet monitoring. Especially for cats with stomach issues affecting urinary and defecation habits, a change in nutrition can help smooth things out within the gastrointestinal system. An enlarged colon is often the root of this issue, so try altering your cat's diet to see which foods worsen the condition and which help alleviate symptoms.

3. Therapy. Many forms of therapy, including targeted pulsed electromagnetic therapy from the Assisi Loop®, have proven effective in alleviating both inflammation and pain in felines with Manx Syndrome. Physical joint manipulation through water or massage therapy may be a viable option as well.

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. The device uses low-level pulses of electromagnetic energy to reduce pain and swelling, and to enhance recovery.

The Assisi Loop. Proven Science. Positive Results. ®
