A middle-aged canine was referred for a non-healing wound just below the left eye. Radiographs revealed a tooth root abscess. Adjunctive HBOT was given along with the antibiotics prescribed by the referring veterinarian. Wound healing occurred rapidly over 4 days. The patient was referred back to the primary care doctor for tooth extraction.
