How do I make sure it stays in place?

Keeping your pet in your lap or in a contained area can be helpful in ensuring the full treatment is completed. If you feel you may not have the time or availability to supervise your pet, consider purchasing the Assisi LOOP-AID®, an accessory for the Assisi Loop that was designed to assist with compliance of veterinary instructions, provide convenience for the pet owner, and enhance mobility for the pet during treatment. Learn more about the LOOP-AID here.

Please note that if you plan to use a metal crate for treatment, the metal can diminish the impact of the treatment. While it is not dangerous, it will reduce the dose received.  A crate that has a wide wire mesh will not reduce dosing significantly, but a solid metal piece could. Arranging the treatment in the crate so the Loop is on top of the pet, rather than against the crate and pet will reduce any interference.  You may want to add an additional session to compensate for any reduced efficacy. Similarly, using the Loop over a metal implant, in a bed with metal coils, or metal brace will not cause any harm, although it may reduce the dose the pet receives.

If possible, position the Loop so that it is at a 45° angle from the metallic implant or If in a metal crate, 4-5 inches from the metal, as possible.  You may choose to place a thick pad in the kennel or on the bed to allow for this distance.
