Used for over 100 years, it is a proven fact that ozone therapy is a treatment that brings balance back to the cells of aging and/or diseased patients so they can utilize oxygen more efficiently. There is LITERALLY no disease process that will not benefit from the stimulation of the increase of oxygen utilization. What veterinarian doesn’t want to benefit their patients by boosting their immune systems and healing their bodies to achieve optimal health? This can be accomplished by using ozone therapy in your veterinary clinic!! Go ahead—explore some of the fantastic methods of administrating ozone therapy.
VETERINARY OZONE ADMINISTRATION METHODS
Major Autohemotherapy (MAHT) is the withdrawal of a small amount of blood, which is then mixed with ozone and reintroduced back into the vein. This type of ozone therapy is used as a complement to cancer treatment and to treat arterial circulatory conditions, viral/bacterial conditions and immune deficiency.
Minor Autohemotherapy (mAHT) is the removal of a miniscule amount of blood, which is then mixed with ozone and injected intramuscularly. This method of ozone therapy is used for dermatitis and allergies and can be injected around tumors.
Administering ozone therapy via rectal insufflation involves the infusion of ozone gas into the colon via a catheter. It is used to treat colitis, proctitis and anal fistulae or fissures.
Subcutaneous saline ozone therapy is the use of ozonated saline, which is injected between the layer of skin and tissue around tumors. It is also used as a precursor to acupuncture.
O3UV involves drawing blood that is then mixed with ozone and channeled past UV light before being injected back into a patient’s vein. This method of ozone therapy is an excellent treatment for viral, bacterial and autoimmune conditions.
Administering ozone therapy by means of ozonated fluids is for lavaging wounds, treating local infections and flushing eyes or cavities.
Prolozone® is the injection of procaine, dextrose, saline, vitamins and ozone into joints to treat pain, arthritis and other degenerative conditions.
Ear Insufflation is the infusion of ozone gas into the ears. This type of ozone therapy treats infections, sinusitis and circulatory conditions of the head and neck.
Ozone therapy by means of limb bagging treats external wounds by pumping ozone into a bag that gets sealed around the area. Limb bagging is the method of choice for treating deep topical infections, surgical scars and more.
As outlined in the preceding paragraphs, ozone therapy is such a versatile modality that veterinarians can use in so many amazing ways to treat most any condition. Once you’ve tried some (or all) of these administration methods, you will know just how valuable ozone therapy is and realize the countless ways that it will improve your veterinary practice!!
