Firefighters Deploy New Tech to Save Pet Lives

17th September, 2014
When a fire breaks out in your home, firefighters have a bevy of tools for dealing with the blaze and ensuring you get out safe. And now they’re expanding their response protocols to include the rescue and recovery of pets in addition to humans. Fire units across the nation are investing in special pet rescue equipment that makes it easier for firefighters to provide lifesaving treatment to pets they rescue from residential blazes. One common investment? Pet-friendly oxygen masks. These masks attach to a regular oxygen treatment unit, but fit the snout of a cat or dog rather than a human. If the animal isn’t breathing, a re-breather can be used to inflate the animal’s lungs in further effort to save its life. Firefighters note that an increase in synthetic material in homes make toxic gases far more intense in modern blazes, thus emphasizing the requirement for oxygen treatment immediately after being removed from the fire. According to research, roughly 62 percent of Americans have a dog or cat in their homes. In other words, investing in lifesaving pet technology makes sense for fire departments, as they are very likely to encounter a pet at the majority of their emergency calls. Pet oxygen kits cost about $75 and can be donated to your local fire department if you’d like to contribute to their efforts to protect pets in your area.     About the Author: Craig Davis is VP of Vet Organics, a company which produces effective and safe natural remedies for dogs and cats.

Thank you for the peace of mind that my dog is not in discomfort anymore, thank you for this product being organic and good for our dog's ears, and seriously thank you for giving us an option to help our old pup with a product we can afford.
Melissa Block Demant
I used this product for my Boston last summer. Worked awesome. In 2 days, I've seen a improvement. Within 4 days, the infection was gone. My pit bull started having an issue with his right ear. It was bad. It was so infected. I used EcoEars twice a day and again it worked like magic!! 4 days have passed and you can't even tell he had an ear issue!! I will never use anything else. This stuff is fantastic!! Thank you Vet Organics for such an amazing product!!
Tina Neupauer
EcoEars is a great product! I used it in my Lacey's ears and we haven't had any problems since.
