This was my first use of ozone and ultraviolet on a patient. I have utilized ozone on lots of patients as a sole oxidative therapy but this one needed a power home run!! (Thus the decision to add the ultraviolet application in conjunction with ozone.) A 16 month old, intact female Sheltie, Blue Merle patient presented to her traditional veterinarian at 12 months of age with an acute severe auto-immune polyarthritis/myositis (multiple joint pain and muscle pain to the point that she did not move and was constipated and dehydrated). She had a heat cycle the month before (11 months of age).
