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!

AMEN to that Doc!

Comment by Stephen Hawkins on October 7, 2012 at 9:29pm

Softened the comment up a bit. No one buy myself to file off those edges.

Worst thing most folks said to me was I was a political tool which I fully agree. They hired the mechanics and I had a great time tightening the screws on the bad guys.

Comment by Stephen Hawkins on October 7, 2012 at 9:24pm

I'm glad we have so many resources for Vets to return to civilian life.

I was lucky I was old when I deployed so I did not buy into any of the politics and the only difference between FF and War was War was real time and most of FF was a few minutes after the trauma. Outside of people trying to kill you it's much the same.

Kudos to our Vietnam Bros. They got the opposite of help. They were my greatest Generation.

Comment by Fyre Walker on October 7, 2012 at 9:21pm

Hey Doc, where's your comment? LOL!

You're correct about that Harold. I'm glad there are programs to help too. If there's anything you'd like to know in particular, please feel free to ask.

Comment by Harold Middleton on October 7, 2012 at 2:42pm

We have come a long way from when I returned from Southeast Asia 40 years ago. No one at that time seemed to think about us reintegrating into society or the psychological damage we may have sustained. Glad there are programs to help.

Thanks for the invite, the video was good also

Excellent video on Combat Stress - kudos for posting it. I've forwarded a link to this site to one of my battle buddies who works for the VA.
