Does your pet have constant skin problems, allergies, itching or hair loss? If you answered yes, then your pet may benefit from Tender Paw Day Spa's Skin Ozone (O3) and Hydro Massage Therapies.
What is Ozone?
Ozone (O3) is an energized form of oxygen (O2) with extra electrons. Ozone is a naturally occurring component of fresh air. It can be produced by the ultra- violet rays of the sun reacting with the Earth's upper atmosphere, which creates a protective ozone layer, or it can be created artificially with an ozone generator. At Tender Paw Day Spa we have a special Hydro-Massage machine that has the ability to generate O3 while the pet is getting a skin therapy. The difference between oxygen and ozone is that the ozone molecule contains three oxygen atoms whereas the oxygen molecule contains only two. Ozone is the most powerful and rapid acting oxidizer man can produce, and will oxidize all bacteria, mold and yeast spores, organic material and viruses.
Ozone is not only a very powerful oxidizing agent but also a very powerful non- chemical disinfectant. It has the unique feature of decomposing to a harmless nontoxic environmentally safe material, namely oxygen. In Europe, ozone is used for many purposes: color removal, taste and odor removal, turbidity reduction, organics removal, micro flocculation, iron and manganese oxidation, and most commonly, bacterial disinfection and viral inactivation.
Hydro Massage and Skin Ozone Therapies
Understanding that Hydro-massage & Skin Ozone Therapies are not a drug or a magic bullet, Tender Paw Day Spa always treats patients under the direct supervision of the veterinarian. Hydro-massage and pet skin ozone therapies are therapeutic tools which can aid the groomer in regaining the health of the skin. In the end, the immune system has to do the work of healing the body and skin ozone therapy is best performed along with other treatment modalities in order to achieve the best results.
The number and frequency of treatments will vary with the condition being treated. A treatment plan is determined on an individual basis depending on the patient's specific skin issues.
