We are now offering Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy!
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been widely utilized in human medicine for years to treat may conditions. Its use in veterinary medicine is relatively new, with only a handful of veterinary hospitals nationwide utilizing it. During hyperbaric oxygen therapy, your pet is placed safely and comfortably in a chamber with 100% oxygen and an atmospheric pressure up to three times that of normal to deliver more oxygen to the tissues throughout their body. This results in a reduction of pressure caused by head and spinal cord injuries, reduced swelling, improved wound healing, stimulation of new blood vessel formation and improved infection control.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is an excellent option for pets because it speeds up the healing process and can potentially reduce or eliminate the need for more invasive procedures. Some of the conditions that hyperbaric oxygen therapy can be used for are:
During veterinary hyperbaric oxygen therapy, the patient is placed safely and comfortably in a large chamber with 100% oxygen at pressure 1.5 to 3 times that of normal atmospheric pressure. Most patients appear calm and relaxed during hyperbaric oxygen therapy (many even fall asleep!) The total number of treatments necessary varies according to the type of treatment and the patient’s response.
