As in humans, as your pets age they may face a host of challenges. Cats, dogs and horses can develop arthritis, muscle, ligament and tendon injuries and sprains and strains. Cats and dogs may also face back pain and neuromuscular disease. Horses suffer a sore back and loins, solar bruising and quarter crack. There are many ways to treat these afflictions.

Traditional therapies like massage and stretching can be beneficial to pets. The increased circulation makes them feel better and they also crave human attention and touch. For arthritis, whirlpools, hot tubs and controlled swimming are effective treatments. Alternating between warm and cold water eases your pet's pain. And the heat can relax muscles and increase circulation.

Laser therapy is emerging as an effective way to treat your pet. A major difference between traditional therapies and laser therapies is that your pet receives immediate relief, which makes quite a difference in your pet's mobility and quality of life—especially when he or she is experiencing chronic pain. Laser therapy does not require IV or sedation. The use of the laser heals through increased blood flow and the production of serotonin and endorphins, which reduces inflammation and encourages your pet's body to heal naturally.

Laser therapy does not interfere with other methods of healing, and is frequently used in conjunction with other therapies, such as the Assisi Loop. Laser therapy and the Loop work together to stimulate the body's natural healing processes and accelerate the healing process. If you are already treating your pet with laser therapy, talk to your vet about how the Assisi Loop will help amplify the healing.

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.
