FORT COLLINS, Colo., Jan. 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Fort Collins Veterinary Emergency & Rehabilitation Hospital located in Fort Collins, Colorado, is the second veterinary hospital to install a small animal hyperbaric oxygen chamber in the state.
Fort Collins Veterinary Emergency Hospital opened their doors in 2003 providing quality care nights, weekends and holidays only. In 2008 they begin 24/7/365 operation adding rehabilitation to their services provided, and now hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). "Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has been helping humans for many years, and most recently has now become available for pets with the manufacture of smaller chambers. Many conditions, including smoke inhalation, rattlesnake envenomation, head trauma, radiation therapy necrosis, non-healing wounds, blood clots, disc disease and severe infections can all be treated with HBOT, " says Dr. Jon Geller, director of the HBOT program. "Surprisingly, most dogs and cats tolerate being in the chamber quite well, without any form of sedation necessary," he adds.
HBOT is a safe, painless and often life-changing treatment used for pets. It is the pressure of the chamber that allows for the increased absorption of the oxygen provided ― more than 4 times the normal amount of oxygen your pet breathes accelerating healing dramatically and assisting in conditions where there is an oxygen deficit.
