On The Go with Pawprint Oxygen Canisters!
Pawprint Oxygen Canisters are a safe and easy way to provide oxygen therapy to your pet during transport! Canisters can be quickly utilized to assist in transporting a pet who is experiencing respiratory distress. Having oxygen on hand can help to ensure that your pet is comfortable and able to be safely transported back to your veterinarian’s practice during a respiratory emergency.
Tips for Using Pawprint Oxygen Canisters On The Go:
1. Make sure you have more than enough Canisters to provide your pet with oxygen for the full duration of the trip. For example, if your pet has been prescribed a 1.0 LPM flow rate by your veterinarian, each canister will last about 10 minutes. If the ER is 30 minutes away, you need at least 3 Canisters to make the trip! We recommend having a few extra on hand in case of traffic or wait times at the ER.
3. Remove the black rubber diaphragm from the Pet Oxygen Mask. We recommend this for nearly all use cases. This will help give your pet greater visibility and make them more accepting of the mask.
4. Bring a friend or family member on the trip with you. This way one of you can drive while the other makes sure your pet is comfortable. The passenger is also responsible for replacing the canisters when one runs out of oxygen.
