Testimonials

  • “Csonka is a 9 year old Rottie that was pretty crippled even on NSAID’s, Gabapentin, Adequan and Tramadol.  The owners have a house in the mountains on a lake, and he used to love to swim and play but hasn’t been able to do it for a while.  Within 2 months of using the PEMF Dog Bed,  he is off everything but a half dose of NSAIDs on occasion.

    I received from Csonka’s owner after she started in November:

    First treatment he stretched out and stayed on the bed for about 20 minutes. Second treatment before bed, he stretched out and fell asleep and hasn’t moved. Even stayed asleep with snack bags being opened in the kitchen and the fridge door being opened (this is unheard of for Csonk :)!!!! He seemed peppier this evening too.

    And then another email four days later:
    He is like a different dog. Grabbing toys and chasing us, chewing on his bone. He doesn’t let out that huge grunt when he goes to lie down each time.”

  • “Nimitz had a very bad weekend when he could not walk for hours and was very shaky after that. Used hot water bottle and cold gel packs to bring down his inflammation which thankfully worked and he started walking better over Sunday and Monday. We were close to letting him go, he was in so much pain and frustration. I guess his vertebrae are fusing with the arthritis in the spine and hips.

    So the PEMF Bed arrived yesterday afternoon and Nimitz went on it last night for his first treatment. Within 5 minutes he was asleep and in 10 he was snoring. Usually he sleeps light and moves around and paces every 10 minutes trying to get comfortable. He slept for 3 hours straight. He has not done that in a year. He went outside had some water and went back on the bed for the rest of the night sleeping soundly and relaxed. I could not believe it. I am so grateful for your kindness and help to support my retired Guide Dog. He is everything to me after taking me everywhere for 11 years and at 13 he deserves to be comfortable and pain free.”   Heather, June 2016

  • To perform at the top level my horses get the top care. That’s why I choose Respond Blanket for pre and post muscle therapy. The blanket is excellent and so easy to use. Our horses fall asleep when it’s on they love the therapy!

  • We have been using Respond Systems therapy blankets and lasers since 1996. The whole crew from Respond Systems is fantastic to work with. The therapy blankets get tuned up every fall and come back good as new. People ask me if I have ever worked with other magnetic products or lasers, and I have always said that I have no need to. Respond Systems answers all the questions they should. It’s a product that you wouldn’t know you needed it until you have had one. In driving with the marathon carriage being 600 kilos and the horses having to work well over their back, Respond Systems is a big help.

  • We use the Sentry Blanket before and after every competition, to loosen stiff muscles and aid in recovery.

  • I ask for maximum performance from my horses over three tough days of competition, so I need maximum therapeutic support.  I use the Respond Sentry blanket before and after competition and see immediate positive results.

  • The Respond Systems Iron Foot Pad has become a mainstay in our horse management program. Our event horses feet are arguably the most important body part related to their soundness and every upper level horse in the barn stands on the iron foot for 25 min daily while they are getting tacked up or groomed. It maximizes circulation in their feet, naturally alleviating pain, bruising, or soreness, and has significantly improved their performance as a result! We love it and our horses love it!

  • I’ve been dealing with Respond Systems since the mid-1990s and have found them to be of the highest caliber, completely professional and truly caring. I appreciate their products, and on the rare occasion that we’ve needed service  turnaround has been rapid and the cost reasonable.  I am writing this to thank Respond and their staff for decades of service to our profession and to give Respond Systems my highest recommendation.

  • The Bio-Pulse bed can be used very effectively on older animals with orthopedic and constitutional diseases. My 16 year old Jack Russel terrier, in spite of his advanced stage of congestive heart failure, was able to sleep after using the bed, for the first time in many weeks. I also found that cats with congenital kidney disease and arthritis would actually seek out the bed when it was on, providing them comfort, as well.

  • Baxter’s hips were in such bad shape at 9 years old that three different vets told me that if he didn’t have hip replacement or stem cell surgery he would not be walking within six months.  Hip replacement surgery wasn’t an option because his front elbow was also deteriorated so he could withstand the weight of having his hips done.  I was determined to find a solution to keep him walking (we spent at least 2 hours a day walking and playing together) and that is when we found a vet who recommended laser therapy.  I was willing to try anything (non-invasive)…..after 14 days and six laser treatment I HAD A NEW DOG!!! He was running and jumping like a puppy again! Seriously, it was nothing short of miraculous!! In addition, he LOVED his laser treatments.  We jokingly called them his “massage sessions.” We continued to get laser therapy for the remaining two and a half years of his (pain free) life.
