Magnetic Therapy and Pets
Animals are prone to many of the same diseases and conditions that human
beings are, such as arthritis and other joint problems, spinal issues,
kidney failure, heart conditions, endocrine and immune disorders. Many
of the conventional treatments used on animals are very similar to those
used in human medicine. A number of health practitioners are combining
western medicine with a host of alternative methods. Those include among
others: Acupuncture, chiropractics, herbal therapy, homeopathy and
naturopathy. Some practitioners incorporate magnetic treatments that
offer relief to the animal without the side effects, often associated
with drug therapy.
Studies have shown that magnetic therapy is just as effective on animals
as they are on humans. In fact, health practitioners theorize that
magnetic therapy for pets is especially successful because dogs and cats
have a much more rapid circulation than humans and therefore the
magnetic energy is more readily absorbed into the body.
Magnetic therapy is often used for musculoskeletal issues affecting pets
such arthritis affecting joints such as elbows, knees and hips as well
as back problems. However, it is also utilized to improve the energy
level and aiding in fracture healing as well as other traumatic injuries
such as strains and sprains. Veterinarians who have incorporated
magnetic therapy in their practice have noted a significant reduction in
the healing period. In addition, some veterinarians have noted that a
common problem seen in fractures that is non-union is lessened or
nonexistent with the use of magnets. Non union of the fracture means
that there incomplete healing of a fracture.
Aside from cats and dogs, many veterinarians utilize magnetic therapy to
treat horses as well. The focus of most equine magnetic therapy is
injury rehabilitation. The goal of treatment of most injuries sustained
by horses is to enhance the healing process by improving circulation to
the affected area. Veterinarians treat many equine injuries including:
tendonitis, bowed tendons, muscular sprains and strains, bucked shins
and others that affect the musculoskeletal system, incorporating
magnetic therapy into their treatment plan.
The method of utilizing magnets in animals differs according to the
location of the injury as well as its severity. Special animal magnetic
devices are geared toward treating the animal in the most advantageous
and comfortable and least restrictive method possible. There are a
number of ways that can be done. Some good solutions employed by
practitioners as well as animal owners are: magnetic beds or rugs that
the dog or cat can lie on, or a blanket that covers them. Some utilize
magnetic collars which offer a quick way to introduce magnetic energy
into a major blood vessel the carotid artery. For horses, it is
beneficial to use magnetic strips that wrap around a particular joint.
The strength and number of magnets present in the equipment or devices
used in caring for animals varies according to the size of the animal.
The smaller the animal the less strength and number of magnets are
needed to achieve the healing. In addition, when calculating the correct
number and strength needed for a certain ailment, the health care
practitioner must take into account the severity of the illness. The
lowest gauss (strength measurement) that is required to penetrate into
the blood stream is 800 gauss, with the strength needing to be increased
as the severity of the illness is greater. Though a pet owner can
acquire magnets without a prescription, it is recommended that a
veterinarian be consulted for an accurate diagnosis and a specific
