I own 2 A9s and am considering using 1 on my cat with kidney disease after seeing the study/article (in Josam) re: treating one cat with kidney disease and seeing very positive results.
I realize you can make no clinical recommendations so my following questions are general and technical in nature.
According to this case study the treatment regimen was 2-3x weekly for no more than an hour per session on the medium setting. While I understand that you generally consider the A9 a “low” power device, at least compared to the full body mats, I’ve been researching other devices and seeing a few with what looks like “ULTRA-low” power outputs – especially when it comes to devices made specifically for PET use.
The rationale seems to be the “less is more” approach, with a goal of constant daily treatment. Especially in the case of the Assisi Pet Loop (the lowest at only .04 gauss), which can be used under a pet bed on a 24 hr auto cycle of 15 min every 2 hrs. Perhaps they feel that this very low dose is safer for constant 24/7 use in small animals?
In your opinion, do these ultra-low power devices have a chance of being as effective, at least with a cat? And could there be an advantage (in general) to treating at ultra low powers for extended daily periods vs higher power for shorter and less often (as per your case study)?
- ICES A9, Low setting: 7000 microT=70 G
- Oska Wellness: 1000 microT=10 G
- Vasindux Pet Mat: 50 micro tesla=.5 G
And the absolute lowest:
4. Assisi Pet Loop: .04 G
I get that more is not necessarily better but these ultra-lows seem extreme.
Thanks in advance for any feedback.
