We offer ozone treatment at Love Pet Hospital. To determine if Ozone is recommended for your dog or cat, contact us to schedule a consultation with either Dr. Wisbrock or Dr. Davenport.
What is Ozone?
Simply, oxygen. Three atoms of nature’s oxygen. It exists in a very active form for about 30 minutes before breaking down into two atoms of regular oxygen – by giving up one atom of singlet oxygen. Ozone comes from Nature. In the region of the ozone layer, our rising oxygen is bombarded by the sun’s photochemical energy in the form of ultraviolet (UV Rays). The UV energy bombardment changes the oxygen for O2 – two atoms of stable oxygen, into O3 – three atoms of unstable active oxygen. We call this pure form of oxygen “ozone.” The using up of the UV rays to create ozone is how the ozone layer shields us from their harmful effects. The ozone falls to earth and is all around us purifying our water and air, decomposing bacteria, molds, and fungi.
Ozone is a relatively unstable molecule, once ozone has been generated for medical application, it must be used rather quickly. It can not be stored and used later. Ozone is made by passing pure oxygen gas through a tube through which energy is directed. The energy breaks apart the molecules as described above, and what emerges from the other side is a mixture of oxygen and ozone. With the exception of ozone generators that are strictly used for air or water purification, in no case should ozone destined to be used for medical reasons ever be made from room air! The reason is that room air contains 20% nitrogen oxide and nitric oxide, both of which are highly toxic. Ozone is not toxic to the body – hundreds of peer-reviewed published articles not only confirm this, but attest to the medical benefits of ozone. It is the contaminants that ozone react within the case of industrial ozone that are dangerous if breathed in through the lungs.
From the Author of Oxygen Deficiency: A Concomitant to All Degenerative Illness
“In all serious disease states we find a concomitant low oxygen state… Low oxygen in the body tissues is a sure indicator for disease… Hypoxia, or lack of oxygen in the tissues, is the fundamental cause for all degenerative disease.” Medical Ozone is made when Medical Grade Oxygen is electrically activated (using an Ozone Generator) to form Ozone. Ozone is germicidal, bactericidal, and fungicidal. Ozone was discovered by Fridereich Schonbein and was described in a letter written in 1826 (R. Viebahn Haensler “The Use of Ozone in Medicine” 3rd English Edition, pg. 22).
It has been used in medical and naturopathic medicine since the 1870’s. Ozone is a naturopathic treatment designed to de-toxify the body rather than treat diseases as such, ozone has been shown to activate the immune system by stimulation production of cytokines. Cytokines are “messenger cells” such as interferons and interleukins, which “set off cascade reaction of positive changes throughout the immune system.” (R. Viebahn Haensler – “The Use of Ozone in Medicine” 3rd English Edition pg 132). Medical ozone also has “highly pronounced bactericidal, fungicidal, and virostatic properties. Ozone therapy is safe – though detoxification symptoms do occur in some cases as the body throws off disease. These symptoms should be welcomed for what they are – as a positive sign that the body is healing and throwing off substances that do not belong there.
Cancer cells cannot live in ozone. Cancer is an anaerobic disease, which means it cannot live in oxygen. Ozone is super oxygen. We recommend bi-weekly ozone treatments for cancer for 3 – 4 weeks followed by weekly treatments, for aggressive cancers. Treatments may be spaced for more if cancer is not severe.
The treatment modes include:
- Subcutaneous fluid ozone therapy
- Rectal ozone insufflation
- Inhaled ozone, passed through olive oil first
- IV ozone therapy
- Otic Ozone therapy
- Bagging a wound or body treatment
Benefits of Ozone Therapy
- Ozone therapy stimulates the production of white blood cells, which fight infection.
- Ozone therapy kills every type of virus on contact. When ozone comes in contact, even with the
strongest virus, the virus is ripped apart and destroyed every single time. Ozone is a perfect virucidal. For over 100 years it has converted sewage into drinking water. Imagine what it can do inside your body.
- Ozone increases the body’s natural production of interferon and tumor necrosis factor, whichthe body uses to fight infections and cancers.
- Ozone therapy speeds the healing/regeneration process.
- Ozone therapy speeds the recuperation and rejuvenation process.
- Ozone speeds the body’s natural detoxification process.
- Ozone is a great purifier of the blood.
Ozone has been found to be extremely safe medical therapy, free from side effects. In a 1980 study done by German Medical Society for Ozone Therapy, 644 therapists were polled regarding their 384,775 patients, comprising a total of 5,579,238 ozone treatments administered. There were only 40 cases of side effects noted out of this number which represents the incredibly low rate of .00007%, and only four fatalities. Ozone has thus proven to be the safest medical therapy ever devised.
Ozone is not considered traditional western veterinary medicine.
