Oxygen Flow Rate
Each Pawprint Oxygen Canister provides 10 liters of Oxygen USP which will provide 5-20 minutes of therapy depending on the flow rate of the Regulator.
Your veterinarian is responsible for determining the oxygen flow rate based on the animal’s weight and the oxygen delivery method (i.e. nasal cannula, hood, face mask). Guidelines based on animal weight are provided on the Oxygen Canister.

For transportation purposes, Pawprint Oxygen Canisters should be treated like any other aerosol-style product (hair-spray, disinfectant, etc).
