Veterinary hyperbaric oxygen therapy (or VHBOT) has already proven effective as a modern method of care for animal patients of all kinds, with evidence that has shown that it can heal conditions such as canine pancreatitis, tooth root abscess, thermal burns, and much more. However, the rapid healing powers of HBOT can also be majorly effective in cases of trauma-related cases in animals.
Interested in offering hyperbaric oxygen therapy at your veterinarian clinic?
Here, we’re going to take a closer look at VHBOT (Veterinary Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy) and how the holistic oxygen therapy products available from Sechrist Veterinary Health could help you offer an effective and safe care option to the pet owners who come to you for help.
What is veterinary hyperbaric oxygen therapy?
Veterinary HBOT is a medical treatment that utilizes the healing properties of oxygen that primarily involves using a hyperbaric (pressurized) chamber. When the pet is inside this chamber, they are gaining much more oxygen with every breath to the point that they are respiring 100% oxygen. Oxygen distribution around the body, which plays a key role in recovery from all manner of conditions, is increased through the bloodstream.
Ways that this increased supply of oxygen can help is by stimulating growth factors and stem cells, with oxygen serving as a fuel with which the body can heal itself. HBOT has already been approved by the FDA for a wide range of applications, including for gas poisoning to tooth rooting.
Aside from having proven effective for a wide range of uses, VHBOT (Veterinary Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy) has become popular as an additional treatment to aid pets’ recovery in a non-invasive way. Furthermore, Veterinary HBOT will help your practice grow, as well, due to the growing interest it has amongst pet owners.
How can Veterinary HBOT for animals help with trauma related cases?
As mentioned, one of the primary benefits of placing a pet in a hyperbaric chamber, increasing their oxygen intake, is that the quicker flow of oxygen through the bloodstream can aid in the expression of a range of healing modulators.
One case study we have published looks at the use of veterinary HBOT for animals suffering from severe treatment. In this case, we provided sessions of HBOT of approximately one hour, with 40 minutes spent at pressure. This helped speed clinical recovery, allowing the patient to be discharged 48 hours after severe shock and head trauma. This is in part due to the increased expression of modulators important to the healing process. HBOT can also reduce acute inflammatory responses, which can reduce brain damage caused by TBI (traumatic brain injury.)
Furthermore, other studies have shown the effect on hyperbaric oxygen treatment on the incorporation of bone grafts, to the point that HBOT may even be able to aid with things like the recovery and growth of the backbone following surgical treatments. In this way, it can potentially aid severe and delayed recovery periods, improving the effectiveness of other forms of treatment.

Here are two of the models we offer most frequently to veterinary clinics:
Model sv250 Sechrist Hyperbaric Veterinary Chamber
A highly popular and feature-complete hyperbaric chamber model, coming with a Class C chamber that is specifically designed to be used in veterinary settings, with screening functionality and dimensions suitable for a wide range of pets.
Furthermore, the vet operating and controlling the equipment can soothe and calm the patient inside the model thanks to an intercom system that allows you to speak. The pet’s owner can also use this system, offering comfort to help the patient feel safe in what might be an unfamiliar environment.
Furthermore, the Model sv260’s dual-mode allows it a range of further versatility. This is thanks to its ability to both provide the regular VHBOT experience, or to instead deliver enhanced oxygen, which can aid the patient in different ways.
Model sv500 Sechrist Hyperbaric Veterinary Chamber
Another Class C chamber model, this device also uses specialized engineering that is designed to be easy to operate for the vet, as well as comfortable for the patient inside. Much like the sv250, it includes a dual-mode that allows for both the use of HBOT and enhanced oxygen, separately or at the same time. It also includes the intercom system that can allow vets to calm the patient inside.
The primary difference between the sv250 and sv500 model is the size, with the sv500 allowing vets to offer HBOT to larger companion animals. This includes a range of large dog breeds that are common patients of vets. As such, it could be a more versatile option.
