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!

!!!!! URGENT PRAYERS NEEDED !!!!!

Yesterday Firefighter Matt Logsdon, Engine 8, 1st plt, was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. He has cancer in his lungs, liver, spine, and skull. They have not been able to determine an origin for where the cancer started. He is not a smoker and has no family history of cancer. He will be flying to Chicago today for a second opinion from the doctors at the Cancer treatment Center of America. Matt is in good sprits, as good as can be expected. This will be a long hard fight and he will need all the support that we can give him. Matt is married with three young children.
A fund is being set up to help the family with Medical expenses, (more info on that as it becomes available)
