Ozone is one of the most amazing adjunct therapies we can offer animals. The procedure adds oxygen to tissue, which promotes microcirculation. If we can bring more oxygen into the body, especially into areas that are inflamed, we can alleviate that inflammation. We can also reduce cancer cells, because cancer doesn't like oxygen and doesn't thrive in an oxygenated environment.
Ozone therapy is also wonderful for infections as well as swelling, bruising and trauma. If you can use oxygen to kill bacteria, why use antibiotics? Especially with MRSA on the rise and the general overuse of antibiotics in human and veterinary medicine. The drugs aren't working as well as they once did, so why not use something as simple and supportive as oxygenated fluids and ozone within those fluids to help resolve infections?
Ozone (O3) is an energized form of oxygen (O2) with extra electrons. Ozone is a naturally occurring component of fresh air.
At Holistic Pets Center, we have the Hydro-Massage machine that can generate O3 while the pet is getting a skin therapy. The difference between oxygen and ozone is that the ozone molecule contains three oxygen atoms whereas the oxygen molecule contains only two. Ozone is the most powerful and rapid-acting oxidizer man can produce, and will oxidize all bacteria, mold and yeast spores, organic material and viruses.
Ozone is not only a very powerful oxidizing agent but also a very powerful non-chemical disinfectant. It has the unique feature of decomposing to a harmless nontoxic environmentally safe material, namely oxygen. In Europe, ozone is used for many purposes. It is also used for color removal, taste and odor removal, turbidity reduction, organics removal, micro flocculation, iron, and manganese oxidation, and most commonly, bacterial disinfection and viral inactivation.
Understanding that Hydro-massage & Skin Ozone: Therapies are not a drug or a magic bullet. Hydro-massage therapy and pet skin ozone therapies are therapeutic tools, which can aid in regaining the health of the skin. In the end, the immune system has to do the work of healing the body and skin ozone therapy is best performed along with other treatment modalities to achieve the best results.
The number and frequency of treatments will vary with the condition being treated. A treatment plan is determined on an individual basis depending on the patient's specific skin issues.
