Modern, efficient and protected, ozone remedy is being utilized in veterinary drugs for every part from ear infections to most cancers.
Ozone remedy may sound like one thing new, but it surely has been round for over a century, at the very least with regards to human healthcare. Extra lately, nevertheless, it was additionally launched to the veterinary world, the place it’s being efficiently used to assist deal with a variety of circumstances in canine and cats.

Ozone remedy 101
This distinctive modality has been confirmed efficient for treating viruses, fungi and micro organism, in addition to irritation and broken tissues, and basic well being points. Ozone remedy and hyperbaric therapies convey simply soluble oxygen to affected areas of the physique – for instance, you will have examine NFL gamers utilizing these therapies to heal their accidents sooner.
To create ozone, pure medical grade oxygen is flowed by way of a glass tube, the place a low voltage electrical present is utilized. (Odd air can’t be used as a result of it’s 20% nitrogen.) This briefly splits the oxygen molecule (O2), creating O1 atoms. These atoms type triplets – O3 or ozone. As soon as within the physique, O3 molecules break again down into O2 and O1, each of which supply quite a lot of therapeutic results. Ozone could be very unstable and final about half-hour, so it have to be made recent each time; it can’t be saved and used later.
Ozone remedy is protected and acts in a number of methods:
- It decreases irritation.
- It prompts the immune system by stimulating cytokine manufacturing. Cytokines reminiscent of interleukin and interferons create constructive immune stimulation.
- Ozone inactivates micro organism, fungi, viruses and yeast. Wholesome cells are surrounded by an enzyme coating, which ozone doesn’t penetrate. However micro organism and viruses haven’t any such coating, thus the O1 molecule penetrates and kills the invaders. Take into account continual otitis (ear infections), which frequently have a number of micro organism, yeast and typically fungus — the efficacy of ozone remedy in these instances is superb.
How is ozone administered?
There are a number of methods to make use of ozone in each people and animals, making it simple so as to add to conventional therapies, or to be used in acute or continual instances. Listed below are just a few examples:

- It may be injected straight right into a tumor.
- Injecting ozone straight into the bloodstream as a fuel is controversial, however I personally know physicians and veterinarians who do it. Ozone dissolves so rapidly into O1 and O2 that no fuel emboli are shaped.

Ozone remedy in motion
Folks usually report that they see elevated vitality of their companion animals following an ozone remedy remedy. At my observe, we regularly make ozone water for purchasers to take dwelling to allow them to soak their animals’ contaminated toes with it, and/or have their canine or cats drink it. We routinely flush ears with ozonated saline, and I ship the animal dwelling with ozonated olive oil to be put within the ears as a follow-up.
