Veterinary Hyperbaric Treatable Conditions

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been used in veterinary medicine to treat a variety of medical conditions in animals. Some of the veterinary illnesses that could potentially be treated with HBOT include:


Trauma: HBOT can be used to treat animals with traumatic injuries such as fractures, spinal cord injuries, and head trauma.

  1. Infections: HBOT can help treat bacterial infections, including deep tissue infections and abscesses.

  2. Near-drowning: Animals that have nearly drowned may benefit from HBOT to reduce the risk of brain damage and other complications.

  3. Smoke inhalation: HBOT can be used to treat animals that have suffered from smoke inhalation, particularly those with lung damage.

  4. Poisoning: HBOT can be used to treat animals that have been poisoned by carbon monoxide or other toxins.

  5. Burns: HBOT can help accelerate the healing of burns in animals, particularly in cases where extensive skin grafts are required.

Wound healing: HBOT can accelerate the healing of wounds in animals, particularly in cases where traditional wound care methods have failed.

  1. Trauma: HBOT can be used to treat animals with traumatic injuries such as fractures, spinal cord injuries, and head trauma.

  2. Infections: HBOT can help treat bacterial infections, including deep tissue infections and abscesses.

  3. Near-drowning: Animals that have nearly drowned may benefit from HBOT to reduce the risk of brain damage and other complications.

  4. Smoke inhalation: HBOT can be used to treat animals that have suffered from smoke inhalation, particularly those with lung damage.

  5. Poisoning: HBOT can be used to treat animals that have been poisoned by carbon monoxide or other toxins.

  6. Burns: HBOT can help accelerate the healing of burns in animals, particularly in cases where extensive skin grafts are required.

It's worth noting that while HBOT has been used to treat these conditions in animals, the evidence for its effectiveness in veterinary medicine is still limited, and it may not be appropriate for every animal or every case. Veterinary care providers should carefully evaluate each case and determine if HBOT is an appropriate treatment option.
