You may have heard the term “rectal ozone” or “rectal ozone insufflation” and wondered, “Now how does that work!?”  I’m here to tell you that although it may not sound all that wonderful, rectal ozone insufflation is a fantastic and simple way to do ozone therapy.  There are at least seven different ways that a doctor or veterinarian can treat a patient with ozone therapy.  Major Autohemotherapy, Vaginal insufflation, Rectal insufflation and ozonated saline account for the primary ways in which a health provider will treat many chronic and acute conditions.  Some of the other methods are used in specific conditions but we’re not going to focus on them now.Hummingbird rectal ozone therapy kit

If you have heard about ozone therapy and all of its health benefits it may interest you to know that you can perform either vaginal or rectal ozone insufflation on your pets in the comfort of your home!  That’s right, you don’t even have to visit the vet.  Rectal insufflation in particular has been used for many years as the primary form of ozone therapy administration used in Cuba.  Because the government pays for all healthcare in Cuba, they searched for reliable and inexpensive treatment options and rectal ozone insufflation is one of those!

So what types of illnesses are treated with rectal ozone insufflation?  You can treat almost anything that ozone therapy is used to treat using this method.

In fact, you can purchase a rectal ozone insufflation kit that has everything included to get going with ozone therapy for under $800!  So why wait?  Get going now and experience the power of zone!  Have questions? Write to us at for more information.

Ozone therapy has been in use in the United States since 2009. It is based on a discovery by the Dutch physicist Martinus Van Marum and was later synthesized to treat a variety of illnesses in both humans and animals. Many animal lovers and veterinarians alike seek alternative treatments to ailments ranging from gangrenous lesions to urinary tract obstructions to cancer. Holistic treatments such as Ozone Therapy can and should be explored as a safe and effective way to care for the animals that we love. Many ozone treatment options should be done under the care of a knowledgeable veterinarian. However, some ozone treatment options can be performed at home, like Ozone Rectal Insufflation.

What is Ozone Rectal insufflation?

In the 1930s, Payr and Aubourg, European physicians, were the first to introduce rectal insufflation as an Ozone application method. Ozone Rectal Insufflation is one of the safest methods of ozone application, making it an ideal holistic treatment option for many types of diseases afflicting animals. Side effects are virtually non-existent and little to no pain and discomfort is experienced.

In this method of application, ozone is applied to the animal inside the rectum. After being applied to the rectum, the ozone is absorbed into the intestine. Administration is very easy, and many people can treat their animals in their own home in a loving and friendly environment.

What materials are needed to get started?

The O3 Vets Ozone Administration Kit contains the ozone resistant insufflation bag, catheter, and syringes. You will also need:

What do I need to know to get started?

If you’re new to holistic therapies, it’s very normal and expected to be nervous about it. Rectal insufflation is practiced around the world and is very easy and safe.

Concentration: 35 μg/ ml
Total ml to administer: 1 ml per lb
Frequency: 2 times per week
# of Treatments 10-20

You will need to set your machine to produce the proper concentration of ozone. Afterwards, connect your insufflation bag to the device and produce the ozone. Once the bag is filled, disconnect the bag from the ozone generator and connect the catheter. Use a lubricant such as olive oil to lubricate the catheter. Insert the catheter into the rectum and slowly apply the ozone. Check out the following links or contact us for more information!

Animal Therapy : Ozone and Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation 101

Are you considering adding ozone and ultraviolet blood irradiation to your veterinary services but don’t know where to begin? Well here are a few basics about what it is, how it works and tips for choosing the right machine for your needs.

The protocol simply combines two individual treatments – Major or Minor Auto Hemo Therapy (MAHT or mAHT respectively) and ultraviolet blood irradiation, both of which offer significant benefits on their own. Together, however, they have proven to be safe, effective and a valuable asset, especially when conventional treatments fail.

Specifically, ozone and ultraviolet blood irradiation combined involves extracting blood from the patient, diluting the blood with saline in a bag, infusing the mixture with ozone created in an ozone generator, pumping the mixture through cuvette tubing into a ultraviolet light machine and back into the blood bag, and finally, re-injecting the treated blood into the patient.

In daily practice, veterinarians nationwide are seeing excellent results using the combined therapies to treat a broad range of conditions, diseases and injuries because it works to stimulate the immune system, detoxify the body, provide antioxidant protection, and improve oxygen uptake. Like any therapy, protocols must be followed (here’s a good example and the number of therapy sessions will be determined by factors like the patient’s overall health and whether the condition is chronic or acute. Acute illnesses can often be remedied with 1-3 treatments while chronic illnesses may require as many as 10-12 sessions, with a response from most illnesses seen within 4-5 treatments. If no response is seen by that point, the clinician should evaluate whether ozone and ultraviolet blood irradiation will be an effective method of treatment for the animal, illness or condition.

According to O3UV pioneer Dr. Frank Shallenberger,

“O3UV stimulates and stabilizes rather than suppressing biological functions… [O3UV] itself does not produce the healing effect. Instead, it induces the body’s innate healing mechanisms to create the healing effect. Thus, unlike medications and herbs, it can be successfully used in essentially every medical condition regardless of the diagnosis.”

When deciding which machines to purchase for generating ozone and providing ultraviolet blood irradiation, there a few things to keep in mind. First, when it comes to ozone, you will want a machine that can be used to ozonate water/saline and oils as well as for infusing blood. Other attributes to consider are whether it can measure the ozone concentration in real time in both gas and water.

Regarding ultraviolet machines, the ideal machine utilizes light energy across the entire spectrum including UVA, UVC and blue light energy. To maximize photonic benefits, a 360° interface is preferable, allowing the blood to receive the highest possible level of exposure. At the same time, a machine that requires minimal maintenance is also a strong point, and users should never have to do anything except change lamps and fuses over the life of the machine. Also helpful is an ultraviolet light irradiation machine with an hour counter to track lamp usage. One more thing to think about before purchasing is whether the machine is available in the correct voltage for your country – either 110v or 230v.
