Ozone Therapy for Dogs with Cancer

December 23, 2021

When you think of ozone, you probably think of the "ozone alerts" you see when you're driving on a smoggy highway.

Ozone often gets a bad rap because of its association with air pollution. However, there's a big difference between atmospheric ozone and medical ozone.

Ozone therapy has powerful healing properties and no toxic side effects. It helps to eliminate pain and inflammation and heal damaged tissues. At Animal Care Center of Castle Pines, we offer ozone therapy for dogs with cancer and other diseases as one of our holistic treatment options.

What is ozone therapy?

Ozone is an activated form of oxygen with three oxygen atoms. As a pro-oxidant, it can neutralize viruses and kill bacteria, yeast, fungi, and protozoa. Ozone therapy eliminates pain and inflammation by providing more oxygen to damaged tissues.

Damaged tissues that have swelling, inflammation, infection, and bruising contain elevated amounts of CO2 and lactic acid, which is what causes pain. Ozone displaces the CO2 and improves tissue oxygenation to reverse these conditions and stimulate the healing process.

What conditions can ozone therapy treat?

Ozone helps oxygenate the cells to ensure healthy mitochondrial function and help prevent many chronic, degenerative diseases. Ozone activates the immune system by getting the body to produce antioxidant enzymes. At Animal Care Center, we use ozone therapy to treat the following conditions:

  • Parasites
  • Dysbiosis
  • Skin Infections
  • Autoimmune Disorders
  • Cancer

Ozone Therapy for Dogs with Cancer

Studies prove that ozone therapy induces the production of important immune cells like white blood cells and cytokines. One of the cytokines produced is called Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF) which makes ozone an indispensable treatment for auto-immune and cancer cases. Because cancer is an inflammatory disease, the anti-inflammatory benefits of ozone therapy make it an extremely effective treatment.
