Oxygen Therapy

NAEC has a large Snyder Oxygen Cage which is able to administer around the clock oxygen therapy in an air tight temperature controlled environment. A desired oxygen concentration range is set by the veterinarian and maintained automatically. An oxygen enrichment is often indicated for post-op situations, shocks, head injury, neurologic disease, tissue hypoxia, respiratory illness, severe anemia, and numerous other symptoms and situations.
