- Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy – A medical treatment useful in a variety of clinical situations. The patient is placed safely and comfortably in a large chamber. 100% oxygen flows into the chamber under pressures 1.5 to 3 times that of normal atmospheric pressure. Treatments may last from 1 to 2 hours and are given 1 to 3 times daily, with at least 4 hours between sessions. Most patients require no sedation and appear calm and relaxed during HBOT treatment sessions. The total number of HBOT treatments necessary will vary according to the type of disease and/or patient response.

- Humane Pet Euthanasia – Saying goodbye to our furry loved ones is one of the hardest parts of being a pet parent, and we will do everything we can to help you through this process. Relieving our dog, cat, or exotic pet from pain and suffering is the most common reason that most owners elect to euthanize a beloved friend. Pain and suffering could be related to chronic, incurable diseases like cancer, renal disease and heart failure. It is normal for owners to elect to make the choice that they feel is kindest for their terminally ill pets. Euthanasia is performed by a veterinarian, and done for reasons such as humane relief of suffering. The decision to put your pet down is typically made when the animal is starting to suffer as a result of the condition and when drugs can no longer bring enough pain relief, or due to owner’s financial limitations to provide care for life threatening illnesses that may cause suffering. Excessive vomiting, diarrhea, intestinal pain, severe arthritis, tumors or cancer can all lead to these painful symptoms and complete body failure. In these cases, it is much kinder to put the pet to sleep and end their pain. During the euthanasia process, your pet would be injected with a chemical that when it enters the blood stream it stops the function of both the heart and the brain, which causes instant loss of consciousness and pain sensations. This is where the term “put to sleep” comes from as the animal falls into a deep sleep and the heart stops beating, allowing the pet to pass without experiencing pain. We offer communal cremation where your pet’s remains would be spread on a farm up north, or we also have an individual cremation option for you to have your pet’s ashes returned to you in a cedar wood urn.
