Suzanne F My dog was diagnosed with a ruptured cruciate ligament in his hind leg. After numerous visits to the vet, x-rays, and a canine joint specialist, I was told he needed TPLO surgery – especially before more damage occurred. Hesitant to do this because he’s relatively young, a conservative route was chosen – minimal activity, anti-inflammatory meds, glucosamine & chondrotin. That helped but he still wouldn’t put much pressure on his hind leg and it seemed to be healing very slowly.
I wrapped his knee with an EyeOn patch nightly and each day he shows progress with increased flexibility and weight bearing. I won’t need to give him his meds soon & certainly won’t be putting him through any surgery!
Andrea R. My two year old Italian Greyhound developed a Histiocytoma on the inside of his lower front leg. A Histiocytoma is a benign abnormal growth of skin cells resembling a tumor, most common in young dogs. The growth appeared almost overnight and resembled a red, raised, circular skin growth about 1" in diameter. After a visit to the vet and a aspiration biopsy to rule out cancer, the vet recommended surgical removal. He did mention that most histiocytomas regress on their own after 2-3 months, but seemed set on doing the surgery. I was very hesitant to take the surgical route because the IG competes in lure course racing.
The vet explained that because of the location of the growth and the normally tight skin in that area, that healing would be difficult and his racing days would probably be over.
IG's leg was wrapped with an EyeOn patch but he continued to disturb it by removing everything. The next plan of action was to wrap it only when he could be monitored. This worked well. That seemed to work well, and within 2 weeks, the red, ulcerated tumor had totally disappeared!
The histiocytoma probably would have gone away in 2-3 months like they usually do, but the EyeOn patch definitely hastened the healing process.
Maggi T A nine year old Great Dane was out in the woods chasing chipmunks and landed in such a way that badly damaged the ligaments in his leg. He limped so badly he barely made it to the car. He was unable to climb the stairs, jump up on his sofa nor jump onto my bed. He required pain pills to make it through the day. Every time he began to improve he would play too much and the ligament was re-damaged and then he was worse off than before.
The veterinarian stated that surgery was the only way it could be dealt with. Instead, the owner tried an EyeOn patch. The patch was held on the area of the damaged ligament for about 20 minutes at a time. After about 3-4 applications he showed so much improvement that he no longer limped. After a few weeks with occasional EyeOn patch applications (20 mins. every 3 or 4 days) he has regained full function. He is now back to his normal self. He can climb stairs, jump up on his sofa and on my bed.
Shirley F Her corgi was hit by a car at five years of age that resulted in a fractured hip and leg that were treated and healed. A few yeas later arthritis began to set in that was quite noticeable. An EyeOn ped bed insert in her pet bed and a tremendous difference could be seen the next day. One interesting note to add, every single one of her corgis ( three or four) passed away during their eleventh year of age except for this one that slept on EyeOn. It may be possible the Nitric oxide increase caused by far infrared may have contributed to an increased lifespan.
