So this is happening—and why not? Piper, an 8-year-old Sheltie, sustained penetrating wounds when she was mauled by another dog a month ago. Now she is being treated with hyperbaric oxygen by Dr. Andrew Turkell at the Calusa Veterinary Center in Boca Raton, Florida. Turkell estimates there are fewer than half a dozen facilities in the US offering HBOT for small animals. Here's the adorable video that could multiply that number and open up a whole new wing in the HyperbaricLink treatment center directory.
