Pillow Pets for Pet Oxygen Masks

USFRA Pet Oxygen Mask Program

Pet oxygen masks are oxygen masks specifically designed coned shaped to fit the muzzles and snouts of dogs, cats and other household pets. They have a large rubber seal at the base of each mask allowing them a snug fit on any size household pet while keeping the jowls closed. This is an important feature of Pet CPR. In pet CPR we close the mouth and deliver breathes directly into the nostrils, the pet oxygen masks simulate that action. Offering a continuous accurately directed flow of health oxygen. Making recovery much more efficient and effect.

Funds generated from the Pillow Pets will go towards Pet Oxygen Mask Program!
