Whether you are an experienced user of ozonated water, or new to the product, this timely article is intended to educate the consumer on the benefits of adding ozone to water, and to provide a helpful how-to for the consumer to begin ozonating water for veterinary applications.
As explained in previous articles on the topic, ozone (O3) is the triatomic form of oxygen, meaning it is a molecule composed of three oxygen atoms. In contrast, O2 (the oxygen that we breathe) is diatomic, in that it is a molecule composed of two bonded oxygen atoms. Compared to the very stable O2 form of oxygen, the additional oxygen atom that comprises ozone creates a highly reactive and short-lived atomic arrangement. However, if ozone is bonded with water, the life of the additional oxygen atom is briefly extended, allowing sufficient time for the benefits of ozone to be harnessed and applied.
