Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy is a great non-invasive pain management tool for animals. It is used widely in veterinary care and in people’s homes.
PEMF therapy devices use electromagnetic fields to promote faster healing in animals. The therapy penetrates through the animal’s fur and skin and reaches the joints and muscles. Some devices can enable you to treat the entire animal, such as a coat or mat, depending on the size of the animal. The Biomag Lumina Vet Pro comes with different applicators that can allow whole-body therapy sessions. The treatments are pain-free, drug-free, and easy to use.
There are several studies available about PEMF therapy, and evidence supports treatment for pain, wounds, and other indications. PEMF therapy treatments can also be combined with other therapies.
There are several PEMF therapy devices available for animals and they come in different styles. Some varieties of PEMF devices come in mats that animals can lie or sit on, such as the ePAD friends PEMF device, which comes with an automatic switch on when the animal goes onto the mat, enabling the animal to start the therapy themselves at any time.
Some PEMF devices come in the form of coats or wraps for specific parts of the body such as a horse’s leg. The Curavet is an example of this PEMF style.
