Enlarged prostate treatment going to the dogs?

dogsA new treatment for enlarged prostates in dogs may actually help their human masters.

A small study successfully treated 20 dogs having an enlarged prostate with a non-surgical treatment. Treatment was pulsed, electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF) given through a medical device held above the skin where the prostate is located. Therapy was given twice a day for three weeks. Each session lasted about five minutes.

On average, the dogs’ prostate reduced in size by 57 percent during the three-week treatment span with no side effects such as a reduced libido or testosterone levels. The study was published in the journal,  The Prostate.

PEMF produced both an electrical and magnetic field. It’s considered a complementary therapy — not mainstream medicine.
