We previously featured 18-year-old Daisy, who belongs to Pam Wheelock and her family. Pam is the founder of Purrfectplay. Five years ago, Daisy started having difficulty urinating and defecating. She was diagnosed with severe hip arthritis and spinal stenosis (a narrowing of the open spaces within the spine, which can put pressure on the spinal cord and the nerves that travel through the spine.) Daisy’s spinal nerve impingement causes her to retain urine and bowel material. When there is a big enough volume, the “stretch reflex” allows her to empty her bladder/bowel. “Daisy had no idea when this might happen,” says Pam. “It used to happen even when she was sleeping.”Continue Reading

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.Continue Reading

11-year-oid Josh was rescued from a city shelter, where he was brought by a good samaritan, by Best Friends LA. He most likely lived his entire life on the streets, as he was in extremely poor health. His fur was filthy and matted due to lack of grooming, and he was underweight. Josh had a multitude of health issues: chronic renal failure, severe dental disease with resorptive lesions, a heart murmur, muscle atrophy related to his kidney disease, and weakness and lameness, especially on his left front leg, which slid out from under him when he was walking. Josh is FIV positive. Continue Reading

When your cat is sick or in pain, there’s probably nothing you wouldn’t try to get him or her to stop hurting. Unfortunately, treating pain in cats is often challenging. For starters, cats are masters at masking pain. Then, once pain is diagnosed, there are very few medications that are approved for long-term use in cats that don’t also carry some serious risks.

As an alternative to pharmaceuticals, many cat owners have turned to non-drug modalities like Reiki and acupuncture.  Another therapy that is garnering more widespread use is targeted pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (tPEMF™). This therapy can benefits cats with pain associated with arthritis, pancreatitis, wounds, or post-surgical swelling as well as many inflammatory conditions.Continue Reading
