HBOT stands for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. A Hyperbaric chamber is a machine in which veterinarians place your pet when they are suffering from a range of illnesses. It is also useful when they require some post-surgical holistic treatment. The holistic part means that when an animal is suffering, there is so much more going on than the obvious illness they present with. Obviously, an animal cannot tell you what is wrong. So, the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy machine takes the whole animal into it, effectively treating the entire animal. The machine enables us to treat the patient much more quickly, as the machine is far more efficient at getting that much-needed oxygen to your patient’s vital organs and tissues. It can offer patients who present with shortness of breath, for example, almost instant relief. Due to the fact that the machine works under pressure, more oxygen is dissolved in the plasma of the blood more quickly. Oxygen is clearly needed to keep living things alive. However, it also plays a significant role in healing wounds and injuries. This means that those unseen problems in your patient’s body will get the oxygen they need to begin healing. The HBOT machine is far more effective than the old style oxygen cages, giving the patient more oxygen.

What Exactly Is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) was initially used as a treatment for humans (predominantly divers), but the benefits have since transcended this arena to become a useful type of treatment for cats, dogs, rabbits, and other pets of varying sizes. Veterinarians can offer hyperbaric medicine for pets through the installation of a modern hyperbaric chamber.

While the actual HBOT process can be seen as scientifically advanced the basic premise is that the patient is guided into the chamber where they are treated with a combination of high oxygen concentration and increased air pressure. This is designed to make oxygen diffuse into the tissues at a far quicker rate.

What is a Veterinary Hyperbaric Chamber for pets?

Veterinarian hyperbaric treatment harnesses the healing and restorative power of oxygen. Oxygen is an integral component of the cellular processes of all living things. Treatment with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has been used in human medicine for many decades to treat a range of conditions including burns, crush injuries and other forms of trauma as well as decompression sickness or “the bends”.

However, the last 30 or 40 years have seen a steady increase in the integration of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for pets. The technology works in the exact same way to treat all kinds of domestic animals and help pets to recover from illnesses and injuries.

How do pets benefit from Veterinarian Hyperbaric Treatment?

Hyperbaric medicine has a great deal to offer pets and their owners. One of the most appealing aspects of Hyperbaric medicine is its versatility. Veterinary Hyperbaric chambers have been utilized to treat a range of illnesses and injuries by veterinary practices the world over. They have been used to aid a pets’ recovery from many different ailments including cuts, crush injuries, burns, septic peritonitis, snake bites and even food aspiration associated problems.

There’s no pet too small or too big (within reason) for Hyperbaric Chamber Treatment. It has been applied successfully to all creatures great and small from large dogs to smaller animals like rabbits, guinea pigs and ferrets.

Oxygen therapy is extremely beneficial for pets and their owners because of its safe, gentle and relatively risk-free nature. It works by accelerating the natural bodies’ own healing processes and is not dependent on either invasive surgery or pharmaceuticals. There is no chance of an allergic reaction and only a marginal risk of complication, when proper training is implemented.

Being able to offer this gentle and low-risk treatment can make your practice even more appealing to new and existing clients.

How does the HBOT for pets treatment work?

Hyperbaric Animal Chambers are a sealed environment in which pressurized pure oxygen is flooded into the chamber. Provided that proper precautions are taken this is a safe and stress-free procedure for the patient.

Some preparation needs to take place before treatment begins. The patient’s body temperature needs to be tested to ensure that it is normal temperature. Increases in temperature can result in an excess of oxygen in the chamber and too much oxygen can in fact have a toxic effect on the patient. The pet must also be freed of any metal items like dog tags, bells or collars as these can present a risk of static shock when they are placed in the chamber wet.

Once in a chamber, the patient just breathes normally. With each breath, a higher concentration of oxygen is delivered into their bloodstream. As more oxygen is delivered to damaged or diseased tissues, the patient’s natural healing process is given a drug-free boost.

How will investing in a Veterinary Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Chamber benefit my practice?

Pets and their owners aren’t the only ones that benefit from Hyperbaric Animal Chambers. Veterinary practices can also benefit in a number of ways from their presence. A high quality Veterinary Hyperbaric Chamber is a great way to build value in your practice, promote trust in your clientele and even increase operational efficiency.

Depending on the size of the chamber and animal/s, multiple pets can theoretically be treated simultaneously, making for more efficient operations and allowing you to administer faster and more responsive care.

What’s more, a Veterinary Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Chamber in your practice will demonstrate just how seriously you are prepared to invest in a holistic approach to the health and wellbeing of your patients.

Practices have a range of financing options to facilitate easy cash flow and prevent the chokehold that new capital investments can place on practices. If you’re concerned about overheads, there are different options that can be discussed. For example, many practices finance their chambers by giving a portion of the proceeds from each treatment to the company that sold them the chamber.

What kinds of conditions can Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) for pets treat?

Case studies have demonstrated that HBOT for pets can prove effective in the treatment of a number of conditions including, but not limited to;

Will I receive training to administer Hyperbaric Medicine safely?

Absolutely! While Hyperbaric Chamber Treatment for pets is a potentially beneficial technology it needs to be properly and carefully administered by a fully trained professional to mitigate risks.

Fortunately, we can provide that training for you as part of the installation process. When an order is placed, we send a dedicated technician to oversee installation and ensure that all clinical staff know how to use their new Hyperbaric Chamber safely and effectively.

Hyperbaric chamber treatment has proven itself useful as a treatment used in helping ailing pets recover from both illness and injury. Hyperbaric chambers were initially used in human medicine, in the treatment of divers with decompression sickness (“the bends”), burns and trauma. However, they are now being used more and more as a treatment for pets and other animals. The treatment has been applied for a wide range of ailments, from injuries received through car accidents to rattlesnake bites, thermal burns and septic peritonitis.

A veterinary hyperbaric chamber for sale provides an environment that uses pure oxygen and high pressure, which helps to promote healing. A higher concentration of oxygen in the bloodstream delivers more oxygen to damaged tissues, improving the wound’s ability to heal. Although hyperbaric chambers have been used in human medicine for many years, it is only in the last few years that more research has been specifically conducted on its use in pets. However, one thing to note is that much of the research previously conducted to investigate the use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy on humans was carried out using small mammals such as rats and rabbits.

Veterinarians in the US have been making use of hyperbaric chambers for a number of years and, in 2016, Fitzpatrick Referrals (which was featured on TV show The Supervet) became the first veterinary clinic in the UK to begin using a hyperbaric chamber. Recent studies have been testing both the effect of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for pets and the safety of it, including any side effects that it might produce.

Sechrist offers a selection of case studies that demonstrate some of the possible uses of hyperbaric veterinary medicine for pets.

Some of the ways that the treatment has been used include but are not limited to:

Hyperbaric treatment in humans has been in use for years and is regularly covered by insurance companies, who are reluctant to pay for anything that might be unproven. Uses in human medicine have included crush injuries and carbon monoxide poisoning, as well as a variety of other injuries and ailments.

Pet owners are also increasingly requesting hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) for their pets. Many pet owners are dedicated when it comes to finding the best treatment for their beloved pets, and will carry out their own independent research. Even if hyperbaric chamber treatment isn’t suggested to them, they may read about it themselves and request treatment or a referral if they think that it could be an option for their pet. Pet owners are more informed than ever about treatment options for their pets, thanks to the internet, veterinary TV shows, and other media that helps them to independently learn about new treatments.

Sechrist has pet oxygen chambers for sale that offer a choice of sizes. The two chamber sizes we currently sell are, the SV250 and SV500, which are suitable for smaller and larger animals respectively, with the possibility of treating multiple patients simultaneously. We began as experts in human hyperbaric chambers more than 40 years ago and have taken our expertise into the veterinary space. Our industry experience has allowed us to design safe, easy to use equipment and to provide maintenance and servicing from our trained technicians. Our products are engineered to meet the needs of veterinarians and their patients and are used in clinical settings in more than 120 countries.

Many veterinary clinics explore their options for financing a hyperbaric chamber. Rather than buy them outright, they often finance the purchase by giving a cut of the cost of each treatment to the company that sells the chamber to them. This helps to make it more affordable and ensures the chamber is beneficial to the veterinary clinic and its patients and clients.

One of the most important things for veterinarians just starting out in hyperbarics is receiving the correct chamber training for themselves and their team. This is something that Sechrist can help with by offering a choice of training options. Sechrist provides online education that covers the fundamentals of veterinary hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which is provided before the installation of a new chamber. After installation, a half-day of in-service equipment training takes place, followed by a two-day hands-on training program to teach the safe operation of the chamber and key competencies. We also have on-site training in the application of HBOT, training in hyperbaric medicine in San Antonio, Texas, and multiple phase on-site training in hyperbaric medicine safety.

Safety is essential to consider when operating a hyperbaric chamber, which is why training in both safety and usage is necessary. Accidents are possible if the correct care isn’t taken when using the chamber, which could lead to injuries to both pets and veterinary staff. Some experts believe that veterinarian hyperbaric treatment should be a last resort for pets, but others disagree. While it can be a useful treatment when there is no other alternative and other avenues have been exhausted, it isn’t necessarily essential to try all other possible treatments first. Veterinarians can offer hyperbaric medicine for pets as a treatment when they predict that healing might be difficult.

There are many benefits of injury recovery with hyperbarics for pets. You can view our case studies to find out about how our chambers have been used to treat pets with a variety of ailments, including the story of Alex the Golden Retriever and how HBOT for pets helped to treat acute paresis in his pelvic limbs. The use of hyperbaric chamber treatment is helping pets of all shapes and sizes, offering a treatment option to address a wide range of injuries and illnesses. Our hyperbaric chambers are helping veterinarians to offer their patients another treatment option and stay up to date with advancements in veterinary medicine.
