Can Magna Wave PEMF be used on Pregnant Mares? Is it safe?
Magna Wave PEMF CEO Pat Ziemer was recently posed the question, “Can Magna Wave PEMF be used on pregnant mares?” Before answering, he clarified that when you ask about a pregnant mare the same rules would apply to pregnant dogs, pregnant small animals, and of course pregnant women.
Most doctors and any veterinarian would most likely tell you that it’s contraindicated to do most anything around a pregnant mare, pregnant dog, pregnant small animal or pregnant woman. We don’t want to do anything to disturb the foal, or the fetus, and potentially have any issues come up. Therefore, as a general rule, we don’t treat pregnant mares, dogs, small animals or people with Magna Wave PEMF.
When can Magna Wave PEMF be used on Pregnant Mares?
With doctor approval only. There have been occasions when we’ve received a call, or the doctor has had a situation, where a mare was going to founder. They needed to help her feet and help things be healthier and stay healthy. Practically speaking, if you lose your mare you lose your foal anyway, so there’s always that to consider. When we have a doctor’s specific request, clear permission, that’s really the only time Magna Wave PEMF can be used on pregnant mares, small animals, or pregnant women.
