Rescue Dog Story
Cutie Pie the rescue dog recently suffered complications when his animal shelter held a routine spay. When it was the dog’s time to undergo the procedure, the dog “died” on the surgical table. The veterinarians, though, was quick to revive the pooch. Although they restored Cutie Pie’s vital signs, the animal doctors feared the long-term effect of the procedure on the dog.
One of the effects of the procedure could be uncontrollable seizures, the veterinarians said. This left them with no choice but to put Cutie Pie inside a hyperbaric oxygen chamber. This new technology is only available at the Scottsdale Veterinary clinic, so the veterinarians had to transport the pooch in that clinic.
The hyperbaric oxygen chamber is equipment rarely seen in veterinary clinics. Good thing, there was a nearby animal hospital that has this technology, so the veterinarian brought Cutie Pie there.
Five days after he was put inside the machine, Cutie Pie showed signs of healing and progress. Inside the device, the cute pooch can be seen walking and scampering as if he is enjoying life.
According to Dr. Bill Langhofer, Cutie Pie was lucky enough to get this kind of treatment. Dr. Bill is one of the veterinarians who looked after the progress of Cutie Pie. The doctor added that he is happy that the pooch was very receptive during the entire procedure.
Dr. Bill added that the hyperbaric oxygen chamber has not only saved Cutie Pie from apparent death but also improved the quality of life of the pooch. In the end, the technology made the pooch 100% well and ready for new adventures.
The treatment, which costs around $3,000 to $4,000 per session, is also used to human patients, Dr. Bill added. They tried it to Cutie Pie because it was useful to humans. Dr. Bill and his team’s experimentation paid off because the pooch fully recovered from his previous illness.
