Animal oxygen masks

Fire Department will have the means to revive pets that are suffering from smoke inhalation or carbon monoxide poisoning.Animal-Oxygen-Mask

Losing a pet in a fire can add to the trauma of a family already having to deal with the fallout of the damage caused by a fire. While rescue personnel have oxygen masks meant for humans, these masks do not work well on animals because they do not fit well on their faces.

The cone-shaped masks, which are available in three sizes, can be fitted snugly on the animal's snouts, and have been found to be very effective in resuscitating pets suffering from inhaling smoke. Because of the various sizes they come in they can be used on different types and sizes of pet animals such as cats, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, and even birds. These special oxygen masks are equipped with a rubber ring, which creates an effective seal, thus allowing pure oxygen to be pumped into the noses of the animal. The masks are simple to use as they only need to be placed over the snout of the animal, then hooked to an oxygen tank which forces oxygen into the animal. As long as the animal is breathing, these masks can be very effective.
