First Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber for Pets in the Bay Area has been called Life Changing Miracle Treatment
Oakland, Calif, March 7, 2013 – The award-winning Holistic Veterinary Care in Oakland, California is pleased to announce it is adding to its cutting-edge medical treatments for pets by offering Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT). Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a safe, painless and often life-changing treatment used for pets recovering from surgery and wounds in addition to other illnesses. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is the practice of treating patients with pressurized 100% pure oxygen. The immediate effect of the treatment is to increase blood oxygen levels by more than 400%.
Increased oxygen levels lead to improved tissue healing and the mobilization of stem cells that further encourage healing. There is a very long list of treatment indication for HBOT including wound healing, arthritis, bone infection, spinal cord compression, trauma, stroke, sepsis, etc.
“At Holistic Veterinary Care, we are dedicated to offering alternatives for pets with chronic pain and diseases that do not respond well to conventional treatment,” said Dr. Gary Richter, MS, DVM. “Our team of holistic professionals is thrilled to offer effective solutions to help the pets in our community to stay healthy. Hyperbaric oxygen provides the opportunity to improve the quality and quantity of life. Just a few years ago, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and Stem Cell Therapy seemed like science fiction and now it is useful in helping to create effective treatments to increase rates of healing and to decrease pain and soreness.”
Treatments generally last one hour. During treatment, pets remain in the pressurized chamber while breathing 100% oxygen. HBOT is proven to stimulate stem cell production up to eight times, which enhances the healing process and allows the body to heal itself.
