Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) can accelerate healing, help fight infection, and reduce stress and pain in pets.

WestVet’s state-of-the-art HBOT chamber was specifically designed for use in a small animal hospital. This cutting edge, pain-free therapy is often an invigorating experience for sick or injured animals.

Upon pressurization at 100% oxygen, the HBOT chamber enables patients to absorb up to four times the amount of oxygen as compared to normal air — enhancing the natural healing process.

Patients frequently experience the following results:

  • Larger quantities of oxygen absorption in blood, plasma, and other body fluids
  • Increased oxygen levels throughout the body
  • Stimulation of the bodies’ immune response
  • Expedited healing process
  • Inhibited growth of some bacteria, including anaerobic organisms

HBOT is an adjunctive treatment provided with other forms of veterinary specialty medicine. Typically HBOT care is administered in multiple treatments; your pet’s care regime will be outlined by your specialist.
