Oxygen and Pet Health
Does my companion animal need oxygen?
Decisions regarding the health of your pet should always be advised by your veterinarian. On this page, we’ll review some common conditions and situations in which oxygen therapy may be able to help. Questions specific to your pet should be taken up with your veterinarian.
Communicating with your veterinarian
We make it easy for you to discuss Pawprint Oxygen with your veterinarian. Download the information below and send it to your veterinarian, giving them everything they need to write and send a prescription.
Determining Oxygen Flow Rate
The appropriate oxygen flow rate will be determined by the presiding veterinarian. The chart on the right represents guidelines for oxygen dosage and flow rate.
While we provide recommended dosages, we always defer to the attendng veterinarian and require that dosage and flow rate is decided by the veterinarian. The oxygen regulator will be set to the flow rate that the veterinarian prescribes.
Pet Oxygen Mask Sizing
Pet Oxygen Masks come in three sizes: Small, Medium, and Large.
Small masks are recommended for cats and “pocket pets.”
Medium masks are recommended for small dogs with short snouts.
Large Masks are recommended for dogs over 20 lbs or dogs with larger snouts.
Provide the next level of care to your respiratory distressed patients. Pawprint Oxygen can help manage congestive heart failure, laryngeal paralysis, collapsing trachea, feline asthma, respiratory distress in brachycephlic breeds, and other conditions where respiratory embarrasment is common.
Use Pawprint Oxygen to transport oxygen dependent patients between primary care, referral hospitals, and home. Designed with pet owners in mind, Pawprint Oxygen is easy to use, with no more costly equipment or complicated returns.
Use Pawprint Oxygen for triage and as a back-up for existing oxygen systems. Our portable canisters have a two year shelf life, making them perfect for quick and reliable oxygen relief in any situation.
