Magnetotherapy is used in veterinary practice and in households, especially for animals such as dogs and cats. It’s also widespread among horse breeders. Just like humans, pulsed magnetic therapy can be used in animals for rehabilitation, regeneration and treatment of a variety of health issues.
Our four-legged pets often suffer from diseases similar to their two-legged owners. Whether it’s age-related joint or back pain, vascular and heart diseases, kidneys or other internal organs, diabetes, hip dysplasia in some
breeds, various injuries or bites, low-frequency pulsed magnetic therapy can help with all of these issues.
Animals are very sensitive to the magnetic field and it’s not uncommon for them to instinctively seek out the company of their owners and snuggle with them when they are using their magnetotherapy device. Its application then causes the same regeneration, pain-killing and anti-inflammatory effects as in humans. Usage patterns and frequencies are the same; application time may be shorter. The easiest way is to put a suitable applicator directly on the pet’s bed, cover it with a thin blanket or pad and the therapy can successfully initiate. The same contraindications as for humans apply to the use of magnetotherapy in animals. In case of doubt, please consult a veterinarian and a specialist on this treatment method.
