Dog owners are dog lovers
(the same of course goes for cats and all other animals!)
“It is the nature of animal lovers to do everything they can, especially if the animal is any sort of in pain.”

That is why you are here. You have a dog with a painful joint condition, arthritis, osteoarthritis hip dysplasia or similar condition.

One day recently, I opened this e-mail from a client:- “my retired racing greyhound, is unfortunately suffering from old racing injuries that we think are causing arthritis. After only one week of use of the therapy, we have noticed a very positive difference in him. I am a member of the Retired Greyhound Trust and when we next meet I will be promoting this for you, I will forward you any results of the meeting.” GH 8th Jan 2008.

So, is this some new wonder drug? No. what GH is talking about is using a magnetic dog collar to treat the symptoms of arthritis in his dog

Whoa! Some of you may think this is a bit “new age” and quirky, am I right? Well, you need not worry. Many modern veterinary surgeons recognise the benefits that alternative therapies can bring to our pets. I am particularly keen you understand that we have animals too and have practiced the application of alternative remedies on all of them.

Now, this is NOT another anti-vet tirade. Our local practice, here in the New Forest is totally excellent. However, there are times when the use of drugs alone is not the best choice. Sometimes we may want a better quality of life for our animals. We feel we owe them more. They have given us friendship and companionship over the years and now they are having problems we want to do as much as we can to ensure their well-being. So will you give this therapy your consideration? Let me see if I can help you make that choice.

Read what a vet has to say about using magnets for treating animals. “In canine medicine, magnets are often used to aid in fracture healing and in the treatment of many other ailments including arthritis, hip dysplasia, osteochondritis, epilepsy, pain relief, chronic organ disorders and vertebral disorders. Sprains and strains and other traumatic disorders may also benefit from magnetic therapy.”

“Magnets appear to heal the body removing inflammation and restoring circulation. By increasing blood flow to a diseased site on the body, increased nutrients become available to speed the healing process.”

These quotations come directly from *Dr. Shawn Messonnier, DVM.
Dr. Messonnier, is a 1987 graduate of Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine. He opened Paws & Claws Animal Hospital in 1991. Many thousands of pet owners have now tried magnetic therapy and have found their pets have responded positively in less than a week.

The one time cost is very reasonable (when compared to the scale of professional fees today); a typical magnetic collar will cost on average 20 - 25 ($35 - $50) and magnetic pet beds are available from about 30 ($60).

This can be very cost effective as from experience it seems to be the larger dogs; German Shepherd, Labrador, Golden Retrievers and similar that are most prone to joint problems. However, arthritis is not confined to large dogs. Many owners of small dogs and cats are using magnetic therapy too.

The mention of magnetic pet beds (pads), throws up a question. Which is the best form of treatment to use for arthritic conditions?

Generally, it is better to use both, a magnetic collar during the active periods and a magnetic pad for sleeping on. However, if only one is to be used, then younger more active pets would benefit from the use of a collar where older, more sedentary pets would benefit from a magnetic pad or bed.
