Color therapy: New hope in the treatment of degenerative diseases in dogs
What is color therapy for animals?
Color therapy for animals, also known as chromotherapy, is a form of alternative medicine that uses colors to support healing processes in patients' bodies. Different colors have unique properties and influence our life energy, emotional state and physical well-being.
Can color therapy for animals actually help treat and alleviate these diseases in our pets?
Maintaining the health and well-being of our beloved dogs is a priority for every owner. Unfortunately, some dog breeds are more susceptible to degenerative diseases, such as osteoarthritis or joint dysplasia. In the search for new, holistic treatments, color therapy for animals is entering the scene as a promising option. Can it actually help treat and alleviate these diseases in our pets? Let's get acquainted with this fascinating field of alternative medicine.
Color therapy for animals and dogs
What's fascinating is that dogs can also benefit from color therapy. Dogs have the ability to perceive color, although their color vision is more limited than that of humans. Still, colors can influence their mood and behavior. (see article: How dogs see colors).
Color therapy for animals and degenerative diseases
How can color therapy help with degenerative diseases in dogs? Here are some ways this technique can be used:
- Pain Management: Certain colors are associated with relieving pain and reducing muscle tension. By using appropriate colors in therapy, you can help dogs reduce the pain associated with joint diseases.
- Reducing Inflammation: This method can also help reduce inflammation that often accompanies degenerative diseases. Some colors are considered soothing and anti-inflammatory.
- Supporting Regenerative Processes: Colors influence regenerative processes in organisms. By improving blood circulation and influencing metabolism, you can accelerate the regeneration of joint tissues in dogs.
- Mood Improvement: This method can help improve your dog's mood and reduce stress, which is important for the dog's overall well-being and healing process.
What is worth highlighting is the fact that treatment with colors helps to alleviate the symptoms, but what is very important, the colors reduce the source of the problem.
Well, a specific length of light - in other words a specific color - is assigned to a specific chakra. And so, if a dog is very fearful or has previously been traumatized, it was given away by its previous owner. Most likely, the functioning of the first chakra will be impaired - which is responsible for the sense of security and belonging, but also this energy center, responsible for, among others, the functioning of the skeletal system.
So - there was a stimulus - the dog was traumatized. The work of His first chakra was blocked. Consequently, if in his further life, the next guardian does not work with him on this blockage, he will not rebuild the dog's sense of security, love and self-confidence. There is a risk that he will be exposed to bone problems in the following years. Osteoporosis, degenerative joint diseases and fractures.
By choosing the right length of light, i.e. color - we help the dog compensate for energy deficiencies in selected centers.
Feeling selected energies and colors also affects the functioning of the brain, stimulates specific centers responsible for the production of specific hormones, responsible for raising or lowering blood pressure, or accelerating or lowering the number and depth of breathing - which also affects the healing process.
Green and blue will calm us down and relax us. Red mobilizes us to action, courage and increases blood pressure.
RA in dogs is a serious disease that is currently considered incurable by veterinary medicine and conventional medicine, both in humans and pets. Which, in turn, leads to long-term administration of painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs to the dog - which, as we know, has its consequences.

Giving your dog long-term anti-inflammatory medications can lead to a variety of symptoms and side effects. Remember that each dog may react differently, and the effects of long-term use of anti-inflammatory drugs depend on many factors, such as breed, age, health condition and dose of the drug administered.

At Puppy Charms - we do not encourage you to give up conventional treatment methods!!!!!!
but if we can reduce the pain, not only with NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) but also with the use of color, why not try it?
Maybe thanks to this combination we will be able to administer lower doses, or we will calm down our friend enough for him to endure the difficult therapy more calmly.
Or maybe it is worth considering the achievements of total medicine, Eastern medicine and working with color energy to reduce the lack or excess of energy in a specific chakra?
Can putting a specific color of sweatshirt on your dog and turning on a colored light harm it? No, but you can gain a lot.

Color therapy for animals is a fascinating field of alternative medicine that can be used to treat and alleviate degenerative diseases in dogs. However, it is worth remembering that this is still a relatively new field that requires further research and exploration. Before you decide to undergo color therapy for your dog, always consult your veterinarian to make sure it is a safe and effective treatment option.
It is important to emphasize that at Puppy Charms we do not seek to replace traditional veterinary care.
