Thanks! I like the positive review. I am glad Tia is doing better with the collar, bed and water bowl.

Oh, my seniors are still playful,lol. But Toby is limited with his arthritis, even though he wants to play with his two brothers sooo bad.
He is already on all supplements, Adequan injections and Rimadyl, Tramadol. I figured this is worth a try.

I wonder if that would help Ky with all of her aches and pains, something to think about as I would try anything to get her some relief

Definitely worth a try - it probably won't cure all her aches and pains but to have an extra sparkle in or two in her eye is worth it IMHO.

GOOD luck!!

I volunteered for The Arthritis Foundation for years as a self-help coordinator. Magnets have been around forever...due to the natural wax and wane of symptoms in nearly all diseases...it is really easy to believe there is a direct 'cause and effect'. We used to see people spend their grocery or fuel oil budget on unproven remedies for pain relief or a 'cure'...it was sad. Having said that, as long as the experimental treatment is harmless and not pulling resources from other critical parts of the budget...then I see no harm.

Got the magnetic collars in the mail yesterday afternoon. I put one on Toby.
I will post if there is anything to report.

It is good to here from you. I was wondering how you went.

It is amazing to discover how many people use magnetic products and the way that they mention that they really feel the difference when they take it for granted and stop using it.

Well, Toby is barely limping, so I am cautiously optimistic.
But, I am wondering, I forgot that Toby had TPLO surgery a year ago and has a plate and screw in his leg...... could that interfere?

Just for precaution, I took the collar off and e-mailed the surgeon that did Toby's surgeries, since I am still in contact with him.

Maybe a dumb question, but it is on my mind, lol.

After a Google search I found this
"Metal plates or pins usually have no magnetic properties and therefore are not effected by therapeutic magnets"

But it is wise to double check.

My friend has a plate in his leg. He also has a magnetic underlay and continues to use it.

its interesting to know that these magnetic collars make a noticable improvement my little Poppy is only 3 3/4 and has arthritis in her back leg (born with it) and will be something to know for the future when it starts getting worse and giving her more jip.

Thanks, Doug. I appreciate it.

I also just had an e-mail reply from the surgeon and he told me that it won't interfere with plate and screws. He also said a magnetic collar is a great idea.

I just put the collar back on Toby, put one on Thunder as well.

Thanks again! Hugs to Tia and have a great day.
