Cats are masters at hiding pain. By the time a cat guardian recognizes that a cat is in pain, 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.
The Loop’s most famous feline customer
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.
More Loop success stories
In April, we featured 14-year-old Nala suffers from degenerative arthritis in her knees and the base of her spine. She also has inflammatory bowel disease and a sensitive stomach. Her guardian Keely F was looking for an effective alternative to drugs to help ease the pain in Nala’s joints. After giving Nala three Assisi Loop treatments a day for a month, Keely noticed that Nala was more mobile. “She’s willing to play more often, and not as stiff as she was prior to starting,” says Keely. “She doesn’t mind the Loop and will sleep through most of the short treatments. I love it and will continue to use it on her!”
We also featured 11-year-old Buggy, who belongs to feline veterinarian Andrea Tasi, VMD of Just Cats Naturally. Buggy has torn both his ACL (anterior cranial cruciate) ligaments in the past, and as a result, has a tendency to get achy knees. “He limps and is much less active when his knees bother him,” says Dr. Tasi. During a flare up of his discomfort this winter, Dr. Tasi used the Assisi Loop daily, and Buggy responded positively. “I was rarely able to use the loop twice daily, as they advised,” says Dr. Tasi, “but even with once daily use, he was noticeably more mobile within a week.” Dr. Tasi continues to use the Loop several times a week as “maintenance” now. “On his worst flare up days, I did use some NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) pain relief as well,” adds Dr. Tasi, “but the combination of the Loop and the medication gave better relief than I saw from the medication alone.”
Last week, we featured 11-year-old Josh, a rescue cat with a multitude of health issues: chronic renal failure, severe dental disease with resorptive lesions, a heart murmur, muscle atrophy related to his kidney disease, FIV, and weakness and lameness, especially on his left front leg, which slid out from under him when he was walking. “Josh was noticeably stronger and brighter after seven weeks of Assisi Loop treatments,” says Samantha Bell, Josh’s foster mom. Josh groomed himself for the first time after his first Assisi Loop treatment (“it was amazing,” says Samantha,) and continues to groom his legs after treatments. Josh now walks faster and with less difficulty. He can now jump on the sofa and the bed on his own with no issues. Josh has even started running and chasing his foster brothers!
