We have a fully equipped Hospital and Surgical room to accommodate a wide range of procedures. A sterile environment, advanced monitoring, and a thermal heating system provide the optimal health and safety needs of your pet during surgical procedures. Our hospital has a hyperbaric chamber on-site. Hyperbaric therapy uses improved blood flow to aid in the healing process for certain injuries and illnesses. For the health of all of our patients we are able to ward those with contagious diseases in our own Isolation Facility.

At Atascadero Pet Hospital & Emergency Center we utilize an on-site hyperbaric chamber to help our animal companions improve blood flow to damaged areas, thus improving healing from certain injuries and/or illness. With hyperbaric therapy, a patient is placed in the chamber and inhales 100% oxygen at pressures greater than sea level. This procedure is painless and most patients actually fall asleep during the procedure.
Hyperbaric Therapy can benefit the following conditions:
- Severe Trauma or Crush Injury
- Snake Bite
- Acute Neurologic Damage (such as Disc Herniation, Spinal & Head Trauma)
- Slow Healing Wounds
- Gangrene or Ischemic/Vascular Injury
- Severe Infection
