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.

Tulsa house fire is the largest pet rescue in recent history

In Uncategorized on May 7, 2015 at 10:12 AM

Repost of Fox 23 Tulsa, OK. Story Posted: 10:46 p.m. Monday, May 4, 2015 HERE
(O2 Fur Life Comment: Fox23 video on the subject after Chicken ad)

Story By Rick Maranon
Quick Facts:

* More than 20 pets were living in the house
* Eight cats and four dogs are still alive
* Tulsa Fire Department has been giving CPR to pets for more than 10 years
* TFD has three different sizes of oxygen masks for the different types of animal snouts

The Tulsa Fire Department tells FOX23 a house fire Friday, near Highway 169 and East 28th Street, was the largest pet rescue in the department’s recent history.

The fire is still under investigation, but fire crews said they brought out more than twenty pets that were living in the home with two people.

“It was daunting because of the amount of resuscitations that were going on,” District Chief Glenn Brigan said. “Because as each animal is coming out, we’re trying to work on them. I would say we had one if not two companies working just on that.”

Brigan said half of the firemen responding to the fire were working on putting out the blaze, and the other half were administering CPR and fresh oxygen to the animals being pulled out of the house.

Brigan said in addition to multiple dogs and cats, firemen also rescued many animals living in glass containers.
“We brought out eleven cats, five dogs, five or six spotted frogs, and a couple of aquariums that had mice or gerbils or something like that,” he said.

He told FOX23 that when it came to the dogs and cats, even the ones who were in the house the longest and didn’t look like they were going to make it, fire crews still attempted CPR on the animals and assumed none were deceased until they proved they could not be revived.

Brigan said TFD has been carrying oxygen masks and CPR equipment for pets for more than 10 years, and it is now standard training for fire crews to know CPR techniques for humans and pets.

“Humans as well as animals we are looking for when we are searching, and if we find an animal, we are going to bring it out,” he said.

He went on to tell FOX23 that humans and pets have equal priority when initial and secondary searches are being made in a burning house or apartment.

The trucks chiefs drive to supervise fire scenes has three pet oxygen masks in them varying in size to deal with small to large snouts.

Brigan said TFD got the equipment because the department realizes how important pets are to their owners. Fire crews are required to attempt CPR on a pet if it is pulled from a burning building and not assume that if a pet is unconscious that it must be dead.

“Some people believe that their pets are their children. So it’s important to work them as best as we can,” he said.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but crews believe it started in the garage and reached very hot temperatures because of household chemical being stored in the garage.
