Copper Therapy for Animal Health
Copper as healthcare for animals
Copper jewellery-type products have been used as a treatment for easing joint inflammation and pain for thousands of years. Copper is known to have been used in Ancient Egypt as is recorded in a medical book from 1550BC (The Ebers Papyrus).
Animals may wear copper neck chains or pastern straps to provide symptomatic relief from a range of health conditions.
As with all therapies not all animals may benefit however, many people will know of a human who wears a copper bracelet who finds relief, so it could be worth trying for your animal.
If your animal does have a health problem, always seek advice from your Veterinary Surgeon before trying copper products (or any complementary therapy).
