Today’s Veterinary Business Staff
Sechrist Veterinary Health has formed a four-person advisory board to spread the word about hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
“The Clinical Advisory Board for Veterinary Medical Affairs will consist of independent thought leaders in the veterinary medical community with a shared passion for advancing hyperbaric oxygen therapy as a clinically proven modality,” Sechrist reported. “One of the first items on the agenda will be to lead the development of clinical research in specific applications, such as traumatic wounds and pancreatitis, where it can help with the reduction of inflammation and decrease the potential for hypoxia.”
Sechrist Veterinary Health, launched in 2017, is part of Anaheim, California-based Sechrist Industries Inc.
The Clinical Advisory Board members are:
- Diane Levitan, VMD, DACVIM (SAIM): Associate professor at the Long Island University College of Veterinary Medicine, founder of both the Center for Specialized Veterinary Care and The Compassionate Care Center, and founder of the nonprofit group HelpingPAW (Promote Animal Welfare).
- Mark Hitt, DVM, MS, DACVIM (SAIM): Founder of Atlantic Veterinary Internal Medicine and Oncology and co-founder of Chesapeake Veterinary Referral Centers.
- Ronald Lyman, DVM, DACVIM: Founder of the Animal Emergency and Referral Center.
- Dennis Geiser, DVM, CHT-V, DABVP (Equine): Assistant dean for organizational development and outreach at the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine and supervisor of the Large Animal Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy program.
