East End Veterinary Center offers a wide variety of emergency and specialty services that provide support to your pet when he or she needs it most.


Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

East End Veterinary Center is the only facility in Suffolk County that offers Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), an innovative medical treatment that aids in recovery by reducing swelling, controlling inflammation and stimulating new blood vessel formation in healing tissues.

To perform this therapy, your pet is placed in a large, specialized chamber with a pressurized flow of pure oxygen, allowing more oxygen into the bloodstream to speed up the healing process. Inside the chamber, pets lie on a soft blanket and rest or sleep while the oxygen goes to work on wounds, swelling, burns, and other injuries or illnesses. Your pet will be comfortable and relaxed during these extremely beneficial treatments with the total treatment time ranging from 1 to 2 hours, usually repeated twice daily. When your pet begins to use the affected limb or otherwise regains strength and function, the treatments are discontinued and your pet will be feeling more like him or herself!

Our veterinarian-administered HBOT treatment can be used to treat:

  • Post operative swelling
  • Snake bites
  • Serious wounds and burns, especially those that are not healing
  • Head or spinal trauma
  • Near-drowning or asphyxiation
  • Smoke inhalation
