Cryotherapy for Skin Conditions
It is a method of destroying unwanted skin lesions by rapidly freezing tissue. A precise application tube sprays nitrous oxide gas at a rate of 40 meters per second onto the diseased tissue. Normal healthy tissue is unaffected. Cryotherapy has been used in veterinary practices for over 80 years with great success. What is essentially done is a very precise application of nitrous oxide to the pet’s problem area. Within a few days, the tissue will scab (or ‘crust’) over and fall off, and within 14 days, it will fall off completely.
Cryotherapy for Injuries
Cold therapy can significantly reduce swelling and inflammation (also known as irritation) in your pet. It relieves pain by reducing muscle damage following an injury, surgery, or strenuous exercise. Cold therapy also reduces muscle spasms and speeds up the healing process.
