The Oxygen Concentrator
What is an Oxygen Concentrator?
An Oxygen Concentrator is a device that filters oxygen from the surrounding air to deliver high purity oxygen (>90%). Our Oxygen Concentrator plugs into a standard wall outlet and delivers oxygen at continuous flow rates up to 5 Liters Per Minute.
Administering Oxygen Therapy
The Oxygen Concentrator can be connected to an Oxygen Cage or a Pet Oxygen Mask. The flow rate may be adjusted between 1-5 Liters Per Minute. Your veterinarian will determine the appropriate flow rate based on your pet’s needs and the delivery method.
Directions for Use
- Remove the Oxygen Concentrator from the package and plug the power cord into a 120V wall outlet. Make sure the device is at least 6 inches from the nearest wall.
- Press the power switch to turn the device ON. Oxygen will start flowing immediately.
- Adjust the flow rate using the knob on the front of the device.
- Connect one end of the oxygen tubing to the green oxygen outlet port on the device.
- Connect the other end of the oxygen tubing to an Oxygen Cage or Pet Oxygen Mask.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need a prescription for an Oxygen Concentrator?
Yes, we require a prescription for any oxygen source. This includes Pawprint Oxygen Canisters and Oxygen Concentrators.
Prescriptions can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or faxed to 855-699-3366. You can download our RX Form and send it to your veterinarian, giving them everything they need to send us a prescription.
We require a prescription to ensure that your animal is getting the best care possible. If your veterinarian does not currently offer Pawprint Oxygen, we are happy to contact them and discuss the benefits of adding it to their clinic.
Are there different types of Oxygen Concentrators?
There are several types of Oxygen Concentrators, however, not all Oxygen Concentrators are effective for administering oxygen to your pet.
If you are using an Oxygen Cage, your Oxygen Concentrator needs to be able to produce at least 5 liters per minute (LPM) of continuous flow medical grade oxygen to support a safe environment for your pet. Non-FDA approved concentrators as well as Portable Oxygen Concentrators will not be able to produce 5 liters per minute of high purity oxygen.
Non-FDA Approved oxygen devices can be misleading and/or ineffective. Many of them fail to provide adequate oxygen purity at higher flow rates, which can be potentially dangerous for your pet. A prescription is required for all FDA-approved oxygen concentrators, so if you find a device from a seller that does not require a prescription, it is either not FDA approved or the seller is operating illegally.
Portable Oxygen Concentrators (POCs) are a type of Oxygen Concentrator that typically weigh less than 10 lbs and operate on a battery power source. Generally, POCs CANNOT be used for pets because they use “pulse dose” instead of “continuous flow” to deliver medical grade oxygen to patients. Pulse Dose is not capable of producing enough oxygen to fill the space of an Oxygen Cage or a Pet Oxygen Mask.
What size Oxygen Cage is best for my pet?
Our most popular size is the Medium Buster ICU Cage. If your pet is on the border between sizes, we recommend getting the next size up. Oxygen Cages are non-returnable once opened so it is important to get the correct size the first time.
We support and carry all three Buster ICU sizes. The dimensions can be found here:
Small: 18” x 13” x 13” Best for pets under 5lbs
Medium: 24” x 18’ x 18” Best for pets under 30lbs
Large: 44’ x 26’ x 26” Best for pets under 80lbs
How long do I keep my pet in the Oxygen Cage?
This will depend on your pet and their medical condition. Your veteriniarian can provide initial recommendations to address your pet’s individual needs.
Be sure to check on your pet frequently to make sure that they are comfortable. You should never place your pet inside the Oxygen Cage without supervision.
