Ozone Therapy for Beloved Animals
Dr. Margo Roman, DVM, of MASH Main St. Animal Services of Hopkinton, in Massachusetts, who has been studying, using and teaching medical ozone therapy for 30-plus years, provides it for animals to help with viral, bacterial, fungal and biofilm dental infections. It is delivered through both major and minor autohemotherapy via subcutaneous ozonated saline; directly as a gas intravenously done on horses; flushed as a fluid into wound and abdominal cavities or through other areas like eyes, ears, skin and bladders; and rectally and vaginally as a gas.
“It’s crucial for good dental hygiene and wound management,” says Roman, also a CVA, COT, CPT, FAAO. “Using it with prolotherapy in a procedure called Prolozone can avoid surgical procedures like [for] anterior cruciate injury. By enhancing the healing of tissue with the floods of oxygen, there’s more chance to actually repair the tissue.”
There are now thousands of veterinarians worldwide using ozone for infectious diseases, pain management, wound healing, cancer, Lyme and other tick-borne diseases and other issues. With its ability to cut through biofilm, it’s so valuable when doing MicroBiome Restorative Therapy.”
She adds it’s rare when it’s inappropriate for a pet, the pet is conscious during the procedure except if during surgery and the number of treatments is based on its condition.
Roman recently used ozone and ultraviolet blood homeopathy therapy plus acupuncture to successfully treat a cat that had a major pyometra infection that was resistant to antibiotics.
