Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Treatment (pEMF)
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Treatment (pEMF) is a great option for daily, non-surgical, non-pharmacologic pain-relief. pEMF treatment uses tiny electromagnetic waveforms (about one-one-thousandth the strength of a cell phone). This upregulates the body’s anti-inflammatory pathways resulting in increased cellular calcium and nitric oxide. This causes increased blood flow and decreases inflammation. At Sea Legs, all patients rest on a pEMF field during their pain-spa treatments. Dr. Coble’s own dog rests on his pEMF bed for most of the day. There are also options for dental pain and calming loops.
Is your pet suffering from dental pain? Signs of dental pain include decreased appetite, lethargy, or refusing to eat hard food. The best treatment for these signs is often a complete dental cleaning and x-rays. However, for various reasons, often times owners are hesitant to put their older pets under anesthesia. At Sea Legs, we can discuss these concerns with you and come up with a safe anesthesia plan for your pet. If you are still hesitant, but want some relief for your pet, the Assisi Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (pEMF) dental loop is a great option! This loop can be used at home to provide surgery-free, anesthesia free, pain relief in your pet.
