Magnetic Collar

Has anyone tried a magnetic collar that improves the overall well being of their dog including preventing unwanted seizures?
It should help with Tia's arthritis and hind leg weakness. I don't know why I didn't think about it before! It might be a bit far fetched but it is worth a try.
Maybe it could help Alice too?

I'm a skeptic, but would be interested in hearing results.

One week update...
Don't tell anyone because I don't want to jinx things but...
Tia seems brighter and I have only noticed one tremor!
She is definitely more interested in what's going on and is therefore more engaged allowing her personality to shine through
Thumbs up for the magnetic collar so far! .. touch wood!

I am so glad that you can see some positive outcome for using it. Thanks for sharing and please keep us updated.

I work in retail and often see older people wearing bracelets of different metals or that are magnetized, for arthritis or other problems, they swear they help! Certainly no harm in trying it out on your Tia, and it can't hurt! Fingers crossed she continues to show improvement!

I tried a magnetic collar and a copper collar with Fred for his arthritis and like you I was amazed how well he looked like he was doing, but I think it was just my imagination or my need to see an improvement I don't know. I thought about trying the magnetic collar with Tom but read somewhere not to because of his condition and medication. Now I will never know

There is no plausible mechanism through which a magnet in a dog collar or human bracelet could do what the manufacturers claim. It's snake oil.

However, it's totally harmless, so more power to anybody who's using one and feels like their dog has improved.

Doug, how is it going with the collar? Any more positive changes?

I just ordered a couple of collars for both my senior dogs. Those collars were reasonable priced, I did not want to buy the most expensive ones, if it turns out that they don't help much.
That company also has good prices for magnetic pet beds/pads.

When we bought the collar we saw an improvement she seemed more willing to play. This is still the case. We also bought the dog mat and the water bowl magnet after seeing her brighten up.

It has not cured her of all her troubles but I definitely regret not buying this earlier.

I hope that you see great results with your pups Be careful what you wish for it may bring back their more playful and interactive side:P
