Giveaway: Win an Assisi Loop to Help Relieve Your Cat’s Pain

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 Loop’s most famous feline customer

Lil BUB was born with several genetic mutations, including a shorter lower jaw and no teeth. She also has dwarfism, which means she will stay kitten-sized for her entire life, and she is the only cat in recorded history born with a rare bone condition called “osteopetrosis”. When BUB began to lose mobility and soon was hardly able to walk, her “dude,” Mike Bridavsky, was worried that she might have to be euthanized. Mike heard about the Loop from a fan, and was shocked by the improvement in BUB after he began using it for only a few months. Mike has been using the Loop for five years, and BUB continues to get two treatments a day. Watch the video below for more on BUB’s remarkable recovery:

AAFP’s Feline Anesthesia Guidelines Aim to Make Anesthesia Safer for Feline Patients

feline-anesthesia-guidelines

Every cat parent I know worries when a cat  has to go under anesthesia, including me. Even though I’ve assisted with all sorts of anesthetic procedures and surgeries in my years working in veterinary clinics, and even though I understand how it all works and what constitutes safe anesthetic practice, it still doesn’t completely take the worry out of it. Knowing what to expect when your cat has to undergo anesthesia, and knowing the right questions to ask at your veterinary clinic prior to the procedure so that you can be sure that  your cat’s anesthesia will be done in the safest possible way, can help ease the worry factor.

Mews and Nips: A Follow Up on Accidental Cat Dad

paris-zarcilla-cat-kittens

Last month, we told you about Paris Zarcilla, a film maker based in London, who went upstairs to get a sweater out from under his bed. He found a tuxedo cat and her four kittens where the sweater should have been. And she wasn’t his cat. Zarcilla is documenting his find, and subsequent experience of falling in love with the little family, on Twitter in a series of adorable and funny tweets accompanied by precious photos and videos.On his GoFundMe page, he writes “Their purity, their majesty. It’s magic. Frankly, they’ve pulled me from a dark place and into their light. The daily lessons I learn from them are illuminating, infinite and far reaching. And these lessons are not just about cat fatherhood but also aspects about myself. I’m going to love and protect them until they need me no more and that’s the least I can give them.” I find myself visiting Zarcilla’s Twitter feed whenever I feel I need a little lift in my day.

If you missed any of the stories featured on the Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: Continue reading…
