Even though recognizing signs of pain in our pets isn’t always easy, as responsible pet owners, it is up to us to understand this pain and act accordingly. One of the many benefits of veterinary acupuncture is the ability to treat your pet from the comfort of its own home. In conjunction with veterinary acupuncture, your vet may suggest the Assisi Loop for pain management in your pet. You may have even seen Dr. Kho use it during acupuncture treatments on her patients!
What Is the Assisi Loop?
The Assisi LOOP®, created by Assisi Animal Health, is a veterinary technology that is advancing the science of healing with a family of products created for in-clinic and at-home use.
Who Is Assisi Animal Health?
Assisi Animal Health is working toward improving animal health through time-tested, transformative therapy. Assisi Animal Health provides veterinarians and consumers with devices that can help replace drugs (in some instances) that can help with:
Reducing canine separation anxiety
Decreasing pain and inflammation
How Does the Assisi Loop Work?
The Assisi Loop works by using targeted pulsed electromagnetic field (tPEMF™) therapy. But, to understand how the loop works in veterinary medicine today, it’s important to go back further to learn about PEMF.
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy
As far back as the 1970s, FDA-cleared devices using Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy have been around in the form of bone growth stimulators. In non-healing fractures, these devices use PEMF signals to increase healing by targeting bones.
Targeted Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (tPEMF™) Therapy
Triggering an animal’s own natural anti-inflammatory process, Targeted Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (tPEMF™) therapy delivers a micro-current to damaged tissue. By upregulating the body’s own production of endogenous nitric oxide (NO), the electromagnetic signal, which is one-one-thousandth the strength of a cell phone, stimulates cellular repair without the patient feeling a thing.
