What is the PiezoWave² Vet System?

The PiezoWave² Vet system uses shockwave, acoustic compression therapy to decrease pain and increase mobility in cats, dogs, and even horses. It generates acoustic waves that stimulate deep tissues exactly where the vet tech targets them. Repeated or routine treatments have been shown to reduce pain, increase mobility, and stimulate a pet’s natural self-healing processes.

The PiezoWave² Vet system is primarily used to treat or alleviate the symptoms of:

  • Shoulder diseases
  • Elbow diseases
  • Carpal tunnel and tarsal diseases
  • Knee diseases
  • Hip (coxofemoral) diseases
  • Back or disc diseases
  • Myofascial complications
  • Slow-healing wounds

Is Mobility Therapy Comfortable?

The acoustic-based treatments of the PiezoWave² Vet system might feel unusual, but they should not feel painful. Most dogs and cats will react to the sensation, and they might get confused or slightly agitated when it targets a particularly sensitive injury. However, most pets do not need any sedation and only light restraints while undergoing a mobility therapy session due to the mildness of the acoustic sensation.

Our vets are trained to pay close attention to how a pet reacts to acoustic treatments using the PiezoWave² Vet system. Typically, a dog or cat will show signs of slight discomfort as the treatment device is placed closer to or on top of the injury we intend to treat. Using their natural reactions, we can make sure that the treatment is targeted and effective.

Again, the treatments can feel strange, but your pet should not feel any concerning levels of pain. It might feel similar to what you might feel after a rigorous but therapeutic deep-tissue massage. For this reason, we recommend that your pet stay in a quiet, comfortable environment for up to 72 hours after a treatment. Play or exercise should be kept at a minimum and closely monitored.

How Long Do Mobility Treatments Last?

PiezoWave² Vet treatments for mobility issues and related diseases are known for their efficiency. You might be surprised at how quickly treatments can help your pet start to feel better.

Important notes about mobility treatments using the PiezoWave² Vet system:

  • Most treatments take between 10 to 30 minutes.
  • Most pets will require two treatments a week, but some might only need one weekly treatment.
  • Signs of improvement usually start to show between three and six treatments.
  • Alleviation from mobility issues can last longer when the PiezoWave² Vet system is used as part of a full treatment plan using other options.
