The Assisi Loop: Effective Pain Relief for Cats – Enter to Win

Assisi_Loop_Lil_BUB

Cats are masters at hiding pain. By the time a cat guardian recognizes that a cat is painful, chronic pain may already have a considerable impact on the cat’s quality of life. This can be especially true when it comes to arthritis, a degenerative joint disease that affects as many as 3 in 10 cats. Only 7% of cats with arthritis receive treatment for this often debilitating condition.

While there are conventional pain medications that can help control feline pain, most come with considerable risk and negative side effects. The Assisi Loop provides safe and effective pain relief without adverse effects.

How does the Assisi Loop work?

The Assisi Loop features targeted pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (tPEMF™). This modality was first studied in the 1970s and is FDA-cleared for use in humans. It uses low-level pulses of electromagnetic energy to stimulate the body’s own healing mechanisms to help relieve pain and swelling. For a detailed explanation of the technology, please visit the Assisi Animal Health website.

Assisi Animal Health found that this technology works especially well on feline arthritis. It is a non-pharmaceutical, non-invasive treatment. Cats tolerate it much better than many medications. Not only that, but a lot of cats really enjoy receiving Loop treatments. Because the Loop stimulates the body’s own healing process, rather than introducing a new substance (like a medication), even a sensitive cat body can handle it easily.

Treatment couldn’t be easier: simply place the Loop on or near your cat while she is resting! As Shakespurr in the photo above demonstrates, Loop time is relaxation time! Shakespurr is being treated for nerve pain.

Happy Assisi Loop customers

The Loop’s most famous feline customer is Lil BUB, who has a rare condition called osteopetrosis. It causes her bones to become overly brittle and dense, prone to pain and breakage.BUB had already achieved internet stardom when she began to lose mobility and soon was hardly able to walk. Her “dude,” Mike Bridavsky, was worried that she might have to be euthanized. Thankfully, a fan came forward and told Mike about the Loop. He began using the Loop and was shocked by the improvement in BUB. Now, after two years (as of this writing), BUB has gone from being practically immobile to playing, running, jumping, and climbing the stairs with ease.

As cats age, they often develop arthritis, but it can be hard to tell when they are in pain. Thankfully, 18-year-old Maine Coon Autumn’s guardian Ellen was very tuned-in to her cat’s needs, and was able to tell that Autumn needed some help. Ellen took her to the vet, where she was diagnosed with osteoarthritis. After using the Loop, Ellen could see a difference in the way Autumn was walking. She improved quickly, and while she still gets physical therapy and pain medication, she is much more comfortable with the Loop than she would be without it.

Pixie was 15 1/2 years old with a number of problems including an ongoing upper respiratory condition. Her vet initially prescribed the Loop for an anal gland abscess because of the Loop’s effect on wound healing and reduction of inflammation. Since Pixie’s guardians reported that her ability to jump had been greatly reduced for over a year, her vet took radiographs. They showed significant bilateral hip arthritis and lumbosacral spondylosis which can cause pain and reduced mobility of the lumbar spine. Pixie’s vet prescribed the Loop to be used for 15 minutes every 8 hours to help with wound healing. After a few days, her appetite improved, and after two weeks, the abscess had healed. She was also more active than she had been long before the anal gland abscess. Pixie’s guardian continues to use the Loop as part of her regular pain management.

    I founded Happy Tails Pet Sanctuary, a no-kill sanctuary for abandoned, abused and homeless cats and dogs. One of their cats came to live with us when he was just a kitten. Now he is 17 years old and has severe arthritis all along his backbone and tail. This would help him tremendously. After he passes, I would donate it to happy Tails.

    My ZuZu had her eye removed due to a cancerous tumor. She has healed but she also has arthritis. This would be a god send. Or a cat send?!

    I first heard about the Assisi Loop from Lil Bub. I mentioned the device to my in-laws for a dog they had that had many symptoms related to old age. I suggested they try to get this and they finally convinced the vet to give them a script. It helped him stay more relaxed.

    I have a cat who has arthritis and is overweight. The extra weight makes exercising painful and I’d love to have an Assisi Loop to help reduce the inflammation from the arthritis (he does get Cosequin but it only does so much for cats).

    I’m surprised more vets aren’t using this – seems like there are a lot of animals in need that could be helped. This might be helpful for an older lame cat I know with arthritis also. People should tell their vets about this.

    My oldest cat, Willow has been suffering with arthritis for a while now. At age 11, she could still have a long, healthy life if her pain wasn’t affecting her the way it is now. This would help her live out the rest of her years pain-free enough to keep chasing her younger sister around the house! 😉

    My 2-yr-old kitty, Spencer, was hit by a car recently. 1 of his hind legs was dislocated. By the time we realized what happened it was too late to put the leg back into the socket due to scar tissue that had formed inside the socket. He is going thru surgery now to create a “new” connection for his leg joint for better mobility. I know it will be a fairly long recovery for him so I would love to have the Assisi Loop to help him feel better during the healing process.

    I have 13 rescued kitties. Three have only three legs and arthritis. Two have Stomatitis. Winning an Assist Loop would allow us to provide them with much needed pain relief without vet visits and drugs. This would be a miracle for us.

    My cat, Persephone suffers from flare ups of FLUTD, and it’s hard to tell just how much pain she is in until she can no longer urinate without crying out. I’d love to know I am doing all I can to help with her pain, without resorting to pain management meds!

    I have an older kitty that has arthritis and I think this would help him. Thanks for the chance.
