Pulsed magnetic therapy is a form of Canine Rehabilitation offered at Valley Veterinary Hospital and Squibnocket Animal Center in CT. Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields influence cell behavior by inducing electrical changes around and within the cell. Improved blood supply increases the oxygen pressure, activating and regenerating cells. Improved calcium transport increases absorption of calcium in bones and improves the quality of cartilage in joints, decreasing pain dramatically. Acute and even chronic pain -also caused by osteoporosis- may disappear completely. It is used for treatment of arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and other injuries. It has no side effects and is used extensively in Europe on humas as well as animals. There are many scientific studies on the degree of effectiveness of Pulsed Magnetic Field Therapy. It was found that disturbances in blood circulation and in metabolism play a key role in the development of diseases.
This form of therapy helps to return the regenerative capabilities by repairing any disturnbances. It allows an increase of proteoglycans and collagen to aid damaged cartilage. Application of pulsed electro magnetic energy is based on more than 30 years of worldwide research carried out by renowned scientists. The treatment protocol is 9 consecutive treatments, each lasting for thrity minutes. Improvement with this type of therapy lasts for several weeks.

Q: What happens when my pet receives PST-Vet treatment?
Your pet will receive nine, consecutive,30 minute treatments. Treatments are administered daily and can be given as frequently as 8 hours apart. It is very important that treatments be given consecutively. After four or five treatments you can skip for a period of no more than 48 hours, then treatments must resume. The joint or body area is positioned in the Pulsed Signal Therapy device, which emits the pulsed signal. Pulsed signalt herapy is administered under the supervision of a trained Veterinarian, with the goal to reach short and long term reduction of pain while improving the pet's quality of life.
Q: What should I expect after my pet receives the PST-Vet treatment?
The process of rebuilding the bone and cartilage takes some time. Although many veterinarians and pet owners report immediate results, you should expect to see a continuing improvement in the degree of your pet's pain and stiffness over a period of 8-16 weeks post treatment.
Q: Will my pet need to be retreated with PST-Vet?
Some pets may never need to be treated again for the rest of their lives, while others may need retreatment over a period of six months to two or three years.
