The theory on the way magnetic therapy works on your dogs is quite simple. Magnetism increases blood circulation on the areas where pain occurs, hence forcing blood to flow through a magnetic field. The heat produced from this process would increase the flow of oxygen to the affected area which helps to speed up the healing process.
Realizing the therapeutic benefits of magnetism, many dog bed manufacturers are incorporating magnetic pads into their beds. Magnetic beds have the potential to speed up the recovery of sore backs, bruises, swells and muscle damages. These beds are also ideal for dogs who are suffering from arthritis and hip dysplasia.
Over at www.petco.com, you will be able to find the Orthopedic Magnetic pet beds that increase the dog’s melatonin production. The release of this hormone will help reduce the dogs’ pain if he or she is suffering from any injuries.
Check out websites like www.petcarecentral.com, , www.sitstay.com or www.orivs.com to view the different magnetic dog beds available in the market. Amarillo and Magna-Mat do offer a good range of magnetic beds that help reduce pain of dogs suffering from arthritis.
In terms of the design of magnetic beds, they are pretty much the same. Magnetic buttons are sandwiched between layers of foams. Such magnetic buttons are positioneed strategically to enable the user to enjoy the maximum benefits from magnetic therapy.
Many dog owners may assume that magnetic dog beds are heavy and therefore be somewhat difficult to move around. This is not entirely true as magnetic beds are usually pads, which can be placed on the floor, in crates, on your couch or even on the car seat.
Before buying a magnetic bed, it would be wise to check out the gauss rating of the magnets inserted into the beds. Higher gauss ratings indicate deeper magnetic penetration into your dog’s body. For higher gauss rated magnetic beds, you can try the Polar Power dog beds, each of which contains biomagnets measuring 3,950 gauss each. Also, the number of biomagnets varies according to the size of the bed. For example, the smaller beds are fitted with around 20 biomagnets, while large ones come with 40 biomagnets. With the additional biomagnets in larger beds, even large dogs are able to experience the benefits of magnetic therapy.
