Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for the Veterinary Industry

What is HBOT?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has assumed an ever-expanding role in modern medical practices – for both human and animal patients. In veterinary medicine hyperbaric oxygen therapy offers numerous advantages to veterinarians and patients.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy greatly increases the amount of oxygen delivered to body tissues by the patients’ blood. It is important to note that the benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy result from an oxygen-enriched bloodstream and not from oxygen’s direct contact with wounds. This is why wound dressings can be left in place during treatment.

Treatment can provide one or more of the following effects:

  • Enhanced wound healing
  • Increased oxygen delivery to injured tissue
  • Improved infection control
  • Greater blood vessel formation
  • Preservation of damaged tissues
  • Elimination and reduced effects of toxic substances
  • Reduction or elimination of gas-bubble obstructions

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can be of great help to veterinary patients by speeding up the healing process and may reduce or eliminate the need for more invasive procedures such as surgery.
