15-year-old Larry was about 10 months old when Mary brought him  home from the shelter, together with another 6-month-old tabby named Jack. Larry and Jack have been a bonded pair for the past 14 years. Larry also shares his home with four-year-old Frito Bandito.

Pancreatitis, diabetes and arthritis

“Larry is a big boy who usually weighed in at 20 pounds or more,” said Mary. “He has long legs and a long torso and does not look heavy when walking around.”  Four years ago, Larry developed pancreatitis and almost died. Thanks to great vet care, he recovered, only to have a second round of pancreatitis six months later. He also became diabetic and has since lost weight to improve his health. Mary has been giving him insulin injections every 12 hours for the last four  years, and he is doing well.

“At 15, he has very painful arthritis,” said Mary. She was excited when she won our giveaway in March. “I started using the Assisi Loop the minute it arrived,” said Mary. She had no problem getting Larry to accept it. “He seemed to not even notice.” Mary saw improvements almost immediately. “He enjoyed his twice daily sessions with the Assisi Loop and seemed to be in much less pain after just one week!”


Larry’s blood sugar numbers have stabilized since Mary started using the Loop, and his overall  quality of life has improved considerably. “He moves with the appearance of less pain” said Mary. “He is no longer hiding in his bed all day. He is able to easily get up in his favorite chairs to be near us. It is so nice to have him once again be a part of the family!”


How the Assisi Loop Works

The Assisi Loop, created by Assisi Animal Health, is a non-pharmaceutical, non-invasive device provides targeted pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (tPEMF™). tPEMF, which was first studied in the 1970s and is FDA-cleared for use in humans, uses low-level pulses of electromagnetic energy to stimulate the body’s own healing mechanisms to help relieve pain and swelling. This therapy can benefits cats with pain associated with arthritis, pancreatitis, wounds, or post-surgical swelling as well as many inflammatory conditions. The Loop is well tolerated by most cats. In fact, many 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.

Backed by scientific research

A two-year double blind study at the NC State College of Veterinary Medicine looked at using the Loop as part of pre-to-post-operative treatment to reduce pain and accelerate recovery in dogs undergoing spinal surgery. The results of this study undeniably show the Loop’s ability not only to reduce pain, but also to help the injured nerve tissue recover faster.
