Snake bites are more than just poisonous punctures – they often cause large wounds that spread out from the bite itself, often necrotic and always painful. Lucy, a dog in Alabama, was bitten by a snake. When her regular veterinarian wanted to add some extra “oomph” to her healing, they consulted Dr. Eric Lewis at Bell Road Animal Medical Center. Dr. Lewis has experienced success with the Loop and wound healing before (read Petey’s story here), so he immediately reached for tPEMF therapy.


“Initially we discussed laser therapy,” Dr. Lewis writes Assisi. “But in my opinion, when Lucy presented to us, she already had good granulation tissue going, and minimal infection. We just wanted to get the tissue to speed healing up. I felt the Loop would be effective, more cost-efficient, and easier for the owners to give treatments at home rather than make trips to the office every 48 hours for weeks on end.”


This picture shows Lucy’s wounds about 30 days after the snake bite, on Jan 8, 2015. Dr. Lewis says, “The area over the back of the elbow is the area we expect to have the most difficulty getting to heal because of its constant motion.”

“Here are Lucy’s wounds just 21 days later, with two treatments per day with the Assisi Loop. The wound is approximately 50% of its previous size, and looks healthier.”




Thanks to Dr. Eric Lewis for sharing Lucy’s remarkable healing with us! If you have a pet you think may benefit from the Assisi Loop, please contact our office at 866-830-7342 or email
