According to the American Pet Products Association, 68 percent of American households owned a pet in 2016; 90 million of those pets were dogs. Dogs are faithful, loyal, and they bring great joy to their owners throughout their lifetime. Generally speaking, one human year equals seven dog years (although it’s a little more complicated that that). This just means that your dog ages much faster than you do. PEMF therapy can help old dogs deal with the normal symptoms of aging.
Common health problems for older dogs
Dogs age at different rates. Things like size, breed, activity level, environment, and care all influence a dog’s lifespan. While some dogs age faster than others, and different dogs have different health issues, there are some health problems that are relatively common among older dogs:
- Hearing loss
- Loss of vision
- Joint problems such as osteoarthritis
- Gum disease and tooth loss
- Cognitive impairment
- Cardiovascular problems
- Pain, swelling, and inflammation
- Loss of mobility
How PEMF therapy helps old dogs
Treating health problems for older dogs often relies on drugs and medication. Many pet owners do not want to subject their pets to the side effects of daily medication, however. Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy provides a safe and effective alternative to drugs for many different health issues.
PEMF therapy works by improving cell health and function on a molecular level. Regular PEMF treatments can help relieve symptoms of aging, and prevent some health issues from occurring altogether.
Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy offers several health benefits for older dogs:
- Relieve pain
- Reduce swelling
- Reduce inflammation
- Improve mobility
- Increase range of motion
- Increase energy levels
- Help dogs stay healthy and active
- Improve mood
- Treat depression and anxiety
- Increase bone density
- Improve nutrient absorption
- Improve circulation and cardiovascular health
- Relieve, halt, or prevent the symptoms of osteoarthritis
While PEMF therapy can help dogs with many of the health issues that come with old age, it won’t make a blind dog see or a deaf dog hear. Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy is a remarkable treatment, but it doesn’t work miracles. However, starting regular PEMF therapy treatments when your dog is young can keep cells and tissues in the body healthy and help prevent degenerative health problems — such as blindness, deafness, and heart disease — later in life.
Introducing your dog to PEMF therapy at a young age ensures that he lives his longest, healthiest, and happiest life.
