Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy or “HBOT” is most often used as an “adjunctive treatment.” This means that is employed in conjunction with other forms of pet health care and is a part of the total medical treatment package or care regime. Oxygen, provided at optimal levels can have profound anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and tissue healing benefits. It can accelerate healing dramatically and assist in conditions where there is an oxygen deficit.

Conditions which HBOT has shown a good success rate:
• Severe skin and tissue damage
• Fracture healing
• Major systemic or local infections
• Intervertebral disc herniation
• Inflammatory conditions such as pancreatitis
• Nerve damage
• Post-surgical swelling and recovery
• Acute ischemic conditions
• Infectious conditions such as severe wound infection
• Some aspects of neurological degeneration
• Problem wound such as burns, ulcers, gangrene and necrosis
• Stimulating new bone cell activity
• Brain/nerve damage
• Arthritis
