4 Benefits of PEMF for Dogs

Pulse PEMF - Benefits for Dogs

Dog owners are always looking for new ways to keep their companions in shape and allow them to live longer, healthier lives. With different wellness modalities available, choosing the best option can take time. PEMF is gaining popularity among biohackers and wellness enthusiasts alike, not just for human bodies but also for our furry friends.

What is PEMF?

PEMF is a holistic approach to wellness that uses pulsing magnetic fields to provide energy that supports the body on the cellular level.

Science has shown that the cells in the body function more effectively with natural energy. On the cellular level, the energy provided can support the body in other ways:

  • Providing natural energy for the body
  • Supporting the natural function of the joints
  • Assisting with muscle discomfort, particularly after exercising
  • Supporting general wellness 
  • and more!


The effects of PEMF are broad and, given the body’s holistic nature, virtually limitless! But how do these benefits help our canine companions? Let’s break down each of the  benefits to show how adding a PEMF device to your dog’s wellness regimen will help.

Benefit #1: Natural Energy

Energy, put simply, is the ability to do work. Dogs need energy for running, jumping, playing, and of course chewing up our shoes. PEMF uses an electromagnetic field to give energy directly to the cells so that they can operate more efficiently.[1,6,7]

The energy transforms into Adenosine triphosphate or ATP, and it releases that energy for the cell to function better. Your dog will also experience muscle contractions, which you can feel and sometimes see during a session.

However, it’s not just energy to fuel the body’s activity. It also fuels its rest and recovery.[4,5] Rest helps the body recover from the draining activities of the day – whether from a long walk or a day at the park.
Science shows that sleep helps your brain and your body. In fact, most of the body’s recovery occurs during rest. So fueling proper rest can improve your dog’s overall wellness.

Benefit #2: Joint Support

The stability of the joints in a dog’s body is key to a healthy and active lifestyle. The joints provide fluidity in their movements, from getting up and down to walking and running. Over time, the cartilage that supports the joints begins to deteriorate, leading to inflammation and stiffness. Because of this, as a dog gets older, veterinarians typically recommend joint supplements.
Another way of supporting the joint is by incorporating PEMF into their wellness routine. A study concluded that PEMF helped release cytokines, which reduced inflammation and helped with cartilage formation.[9] When cartilage weakens, we can support the natural shape and function of the joints. PEMF can help aging animals produce these crucial nutrients their bodies need to thrive.

Benefit #3: Assistance with Muscle Fatigue and Discomfort

Muscle fatigue and discomfort are typical side effects of exercise. During exercise, the muscles contract and release consistently. Over time, those muscles get small tears.

These microtears usually heal, allowing the muscles to grow and become stronger. However, they’re also why your dog will experience soreness or discomfort after a long day of play or a competitive event.


Adding PEMF can help soothe muscle discomfort and fatigue after training or competitions, even helping to improve the natural recovery process.[3] This can extend the quality of their athletic careers or just their enjoyment of life. PEMF is excellent as a standalone wellness modality, but it also complements therapies such as chiropractics, acupuncture, laser, and aquatic therapy.

Adding PEMF is an excellent way to help your dog relax and recharge. Ensuring that our dogs feel their best, no matter their lifestyle, should be the goal of any dog owner.

Benefit #4: Support General Wellness

As dog owners, one of our primary responsibilities is to have our pets checked regularly. Annual vet appointments for vaccines, tests, and bloodwork to survey their health and prevent common diseases are essential.
When looking to add some support between visits, PEMF is an innovative yet natural approach to support their bodies. With the cells performing at peak capacity, any issue that occurs in the body will be handled more efficiently.
Consult your vet before starting PEMF, and check out our PEMF machines and accessories focused on canine companions. If you have questions about how PEMF can enhance your dog’s life, contact our Customer Support Team, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET.
