Giveaway: Safe and Effective Pain Control for Cats with the Assisi Loop

This giveaway is sponsored by Assisi Animal Health

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.

Proven science with positive results

A two-year double blind clinical trial on dogs recovering from spinal surgery at NC State College of Veterinary Medicine showed that the Loop not only reduces pain, but also helps the injured nerve tissue recover faster. This enables the pet to return more quickly to normal function.”

The Assisi Loop Helps Shade with Stomatitis

assisi-loop-stomatitis

Treatment of stomatitis can be very frustrating. The goal is to control the inflammatory response. Typically, a cat will need to have a thorough cleaning of teeth to remove all plaque and tartar accumulation both above and below the gum line. Cats may be given antibiotics and anti-inflammatory steroids; however, they usually only offer short term relief. Eventually, most cats will require extraction of all of their teeth.

Shade never had any dental work done, she was treated with the Assisi Loop.

“His entire demeanor has changed,” said Stephanie. “He has become more friendly and social. He rarely meowed or cried for attention and now he is constantly meowing at us to feed or pet him. His GI issues have virtually disappeared, his gums aren’t as inflamed and his breath barely smells.”

The Assisi Loop Helps Cleo with Chronic Bladder Inflammation

The time between flare ups of Cleo’s chronic bladder issues has increased after Cleo’s guardian started using the Loop. Cleo used to need weekly laser treatments for three weeks at least every month or every six week. “Now we can sometimes go 3 to 4 months between laser sessions,” says Angela.

Mews and Nips: Freddie Mercury’s Cats Made Bohemian Rhapsody Even Better

Freddie-Mercury-cats

I went to see Bohemian Rhapsody, and the movie was everything I had hoped for and then some. I loved everything about it: the wonderful portrayal of Freddie Mercury, perfect casting and phenomenal acting, and of course, the music. The movie had me spellbound and that’s something that rarely happens for me. And the cats! I knew Freddie Mercury was a cat lover, but I had no idea just how much he loved cats. And even though they’re not in the movie, he had two torties, and he even wrote a song for one of them! For more about Freddie Mercury’s cats, visit The Washington Post.

I love when publishers or authors send me children’s books. I wouldn’t think to look at them in a bookstore, but I’m finding that for a few minutes, they bring back a sense of fun and a lightness of being that tends to be in short supply in our “serious” adult lives. Continue reading…

How to Perform a Home Health Check for Your Cat

cat_holding_hand

Cats are masters at hiding signs of illness or pain. By the time they show symptoms, they’re often really sick. By learning what is normal for your cat, and keeping an eye on even subtle changes, you can get your cat to a veterinarian before problems become serious.

Cats are creatures of habit, and even subtle changes from their normal behavior and routine may be cause for concern. Changes in appetite, drinking habits, litter box routine, grooming and even the sound of your cat’s voice can all be signs that something is wrong.

In addition to watching for subtle changes, one of the best ways to monitor your cat’s health at home is to perform periodic health checks on your cat. Continue reading…
