THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT ;-)
Disclosure of Dept Information (sponsors faq)
We do NOT need a full shipping address. For warranty purposes we just need the dept name, city and state.
Because of the nature of this initiative, the warranty follows the masks, not necessarily the person or organization placing the order. In order to be applicable, the warranty needs to be registered at the time of purchase or shortly thereafter. Additionally, we need to have the department's information in our database should they contact us for any follow up customer service requests (eFile requests etc) and/or warranty inquiries. It helps us help them. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in providing that information.
Can we ship kits directly to you, the sponsor(s)?
YES. Please add kits to cart and enter your shipping information on the checkout page.
Only restriction is that we do NOT ship to PO Boxes.

What is the difference between a pet oxygen mask and an anesthesia mask?
Pet Oxygen Mask Anesthesia Mask
Both pet oxygen masks (aka oxygen recovery masks) and anesthesia masks are designed for in office veterinary care.
Pet oxygen masks have now widely been used in the animal rescue field.
In the veterinary field, PET OXYGEN MASKS are most commonly used on animals that are breathing on their own but need oxygen supplementation.
The two green vents are there to allow for CO2 to vent out AND to ensure steady O2 flow level distribution.
Remember, the animal is generally breathing on its own but needs assistance.
The black diaphragm is present with both masks.
On the O2 mask it is there to prevent O2 leaking out and ensuring the prescribed amount of O2 is delivered to the patient.
Without it, users are providing no more than blow by oxygen, which in a rescue environment is less than ideal.
On the anesthesia mask it is designed to specifically limit leaks and should remain ON to limit loss of anesthetic (and impact the humans breathing that in) during the medical procedure.**
Both the cone shaped masks were designed to be clear/see through for the staff to maintain a visual on the animal's breathing and potential bleeding (internal or trauma) during the procedure.
Oxygen is prescription medication Fire and EMS departments generally carry for human consumption and cannot afford to waste it.
We are grateful for every department willing to use their inventory to help save animals. They are not mandated by law of protocol to do so.
When using a pet oxygen mask when performing non mouth to snout resuscitation (CPR), users are directed to manually cover the vents while using the BVM hook up.
ANESTHESIA MASKS do NOT include the two CO2 exhalation vents because this equipment is primarily used to administer and maintain the animal under anesthesia during a medical procedure.
Anesthesia masks are a direct extension of the anesthesia machine to the patient. The main difference is with the top connections from the mask to the breathing circuits.
The breathing circuits direct the O2 and anesthetic supply during surgery. There is far less risk of CO2 rebreathing while the animal is on monitored medicated anesthesia.
** Removing the black diaphragm is NEVER recommended in the emergency field and/or in the veterinary setting.
Difficulty breathing is a life threatening condition that far supersedes the ever so slight discomfort the soft and bendable rubber diaphragm may cause to an animal following smoke inhalation from a fire.
In the rescue field, the intended use is 'animals that have inhaled toxic chemicals', so much so, it impairs their lung function and puts them at immediate risk of losing their lives.
Wasting the O2 and potentially adding CO2 inhalation to the list of issues is NOT appropriate for field rescue use.
Pet parents choosing to remove the diaphragm for in home O2 supplemental use on stable patients, do so at their own risk and expense.
The Wag'N O2 Fur Life® Kit includes:
Pet owners may not always be on scene when the rescue is made, may be overwhelmed or themselves be injured. Many scenarios will require the rescued pets and owners to be separated after the initial rescue. In most cases, following the initial application of oxygen, the animal will need transport to a veterinarian (just like humans generally take a ride to the hospital after being rescued from a fire).
The 3-part AIR Form lets responding units record animal rescue information such as: number of extricated animals, on scene procedures, estimated time to exposure, name and address of facility animal being taken to and more. The receiving veterinarian will then have valuable documented information of the on-scene treatment to better follow-up on animal care. In addition, the pet owners will have written documentation of what happened to their animals and where they have been taken to.
Two free AIR forms are included in each kit for First Responders. Additional forms can be ordered online in packs of 25 and 50. Click HERE to order additional AIR Forms now.
