Q&A’s on our magnetic horse rugs and boots

1. Are your boots suitable for turnout?

They are designed for stable use only with the exception of the Equine Magnetix Ankle Boots. These boots can be used in both the stable and field.

2. Can I exercise my horse in the Equine Magnetix magnetic boots?

Our magnetic boots are designed to be used in the stable and should not be used during exercise.

3. Can I travel my horse in the magnetic rug?

Yes, this is one of the best times to use the Equine Magnetix Rug.

4. How do I wash your products?

The magnetic rug can be washed at 30 degrees and the magnetic boots and wraps can be hand washed. If you wish to put the magnetic boots or wraps in the washing machine, please protect in a wash bag and place on a hand wash setting.

5. Can I use your products for prolonged periods of time?

Yes, a good time to use our products is overnight, whilst your horse is travelling or standing in the stable. If you have not used Magnetic Therapy on your horse before then you need to build them up slowly before using it for longer periods of time.

7. What type of magnets do you use?

In all our rugs and boots we use neodymium (rare earth) magnets, unipolar north facing at 2,000 gauss each.

8. How long will the magnets last?

Equine Magnetix uses neodymium magnets which are one of the strongest magnets available on the market. Their magnetic strength will last approximately 15 years.

9. What's the difference between the magnetic ankle boots and bell boots?

The magnetic bell boots are used to cover the hoof and the magnetic ankle boots can be used either above or below the fetlock joint. As they are covering a similar area, customers choose either type of boot to treat conditions such as navicular and laminitis.

10. Do I have to cover the exact area?

Not necessarily, however as close as possible is best. For example, you can use the magnetic stable boots to help with conditions associated with the knee.

Q&A’s on our magnetic dog coats and collars

1. How does Magnetic Therapy Work?

Magnetic Therapy works by applying magnetic fields to the body. The magnetic field is absorbed relaxing capillary walls, muscle and soft tissue. This creates the environment for improved blood flow and oxygen necessary to accelerate healing. Magnetic fields can block pain receptors and release endorphins, which is the body’s natural way of dealing with pain relief.

2. How can a Magnetic Dog Collar help with Arthritis?

For dogs with arthritis a magnetic dog collar can work in two ways. Firstly, it improves blood flow and oxygen which helps to reduce stiffness. And secondly, a magnetic dog collar helps to stimulate the release of natural endorphins which gives natural pain relieve to your dog.

3. My dog has been diagnosed with Hip/Elbow Dysplasia. Can a Magnetic Dog collar help?

Yes, a magnetic dog collar can help ease the discomfort of these conditions. A full diagnosis from your vet and treatment recommendation is important. Your dog may require surgery and/or medication. Read Ella’s story. She has elbow dysplasia and had arthroscopy surgery 4 years ago. She doesn’t require any medication and her magnetic dog collar has definitely improved her mobility.
