1/3/2013 – Cola the Dog Saved in Lima, OH
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5U16UQHMDaY&feature=youtu.be
The article link was disabled. Here is the text we were able to recover.
[In Lima, Ohio, a house fire broke out the morning of January 3, 2013. An adult occupant escaped from an upstairs room, but the family dog Cola hid in the basement. Nearly fifteen minutes after firefighters started attacking the fire in the freezing cold, they discover the dog-apparently lifeless-and bring her upstairs and out onto the snow. Luckily, the Lima Fire Department had been the recipient of a gift: pet oxygen masks, made to fit the long snouts of dogs and other pets. Firefighters worked on Cola for nearly five minutes, giving her oxygen, until she started breathing again. Her emotional owner, anxiously watching nearby, cried tears of relief and gratitude.
The house fire was caught on video; toward the end, near the 16:00 minute mark, you can see the firefighters bringing Cola out of the house and laying her on the snow to start resuscitation efforts. Unfortunately the video does not extend to her successful recovery.
http://youtu.be/5U16UQHMDaY
DAH partnered with the Ohio Veterinary Medical Association to purchase pet oxygen mask kits for 4 local fire departments – Delphos, Lima, American Township, and Spencerville. The kits were acquired through the Wag’N O2 Fur Life Program in September and 2 more were acquired just a few days ago.

Saving Nalah – An Easter Miracle

In Uncategorized on April 28, 2017 at 11:45 AM

And this ladies and gentlemen is why we do what we do. It is nearly impossible to put into words the gratitude and utter relief a pet parent can feel when their best friend is saved against all odds. This short video portrays the greatness of the human spirit in its ability and willingness to come through for another living being in distress. So we want to take this opportunity to thank EVERY sponsor who saw the need for this equipment and EVERY first responder who put their lives on the line every day and can make miracles like this happen by simply agreeing to carry this pet life saving equipment and use it when needed. We are very grateful to Erik Swanson from York City Department of Fire/Rescue Services and Animal Emergency and Referral Center of York for saving Nalah’s life. We also want to send specials wags out those involved in creating this video for truly capturing the message we strive to convey with our initiative. THANK YOU ALL FOR MAKING THIS MIRACLE HAPPEN. 

Semper Wag’N. The O2 Fur Life Team (Ines, Gypsy, Mayday & Che)

Pet Oxygen Mask – Pet Parent Update on Oxygen Delivery System – LifeFlo

In Uncategorized on September 27, 2016 at 1:12 PM

A new emergency oxygen delivery system solution has been brought to our attention…a solution that does NOT require a prescription!!! Wag this out:
LifeFlo (www.lifeflooxygen.com ) Over The Counter (OTC) Emergency Oxygen Provides 15 to 20 minutes of 99% pure oxygen while awaiting the arrival of emergency services and/or while transporting your pet to the emergency veterinarian. This OTC option is approved by the FDA and does NOT require a prescription! Pricing per unit starts at $89.99
To visit the LifeFlo Store click HERE

Although we do NOT currently sell this equipment, the oxygen mask tubing included with your pet oxygen mask will fit the LifeFlo unit.

We have added this new option in our response to last FAQ


** Please note that if your veterinarian prescribes daily long term oxygen therapy, we recommend getting the prescription and the oxygen tank as it will most certainly be more cost efficient. This solution can be helpful whilst waiting to find the provider and/or should you get any issues/delays in acquiring that equipment.
