tPEMF therapy is a safe option when it comes to anxiety in animals.
As veterinary professionals, we are constantly looking for the best ways to improve the health and wellbeing of our patients, especially when it comes to calming companion animals. There are several methods available for calming animals, but mostly traditional pharmaceuticals are used. However, targeted Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (tPEMF) therapy is a very effective and safe alternative.
Side effects of pharmaceuticals
Traditional pharmaceuticals, such as benzodiazepines and anti-anxiety drugs, have been used for years to treat anxiety in animals. These drugs work by altering the neurotransmitters in the brain and creating a sedative effect. While these drugs can be effective in the short term, they come with a number of negative side effects, such as liver damage, kidney damage, and respiratory depression. In addition, extended use of these drugs can make it difficult for animals to function without them, resulting in drug dependence.
tPEMF is safe
On the other hand, tPEMF therapy is a non-invasive, drug free method of calming animals. tPEMF therapy works by exposing the animal to low-frequency electromagnetic fields, which has been shown to have a calming effect on the brain and nervous system. This therapy has been shown to improve anxiety, reduce stress, and promote relaxation without the negative side effects associated with traditional pharmaceuticals.
One of the biggest advantages of tPEMF therapy is that it is completely safe and non-invasive. Unlike traditional pharmaceuticals, tPEMF therapy does not cause any adverse side effects or interactions with other medications. This makes it a great option for animals with pre-existing health conditions or those taking other medications. In addition, tPEMF therapy is easy to administer and does not require any special training or equipment, making it a good option for veterinary professionals to recommend.
Another advantage of tPEMF therapy is that it can be used to treat a variety of conditions, not just anxiety. tPEMF therapy can also be used to treat depression, insomnia, and other behavioral issues in animals.
