Pet Oxygen Masks
After responding to house fires and volunteering to help the animal victims, Dr. Jo Ann Daniels has made it her mission to obtain Pet Oxygen Masks for Pasco County fire rescue first responders. These special masks can be fitted to human oxygen supplies to help pets affected by smoke inhalation to save lives.
Just as important as the proper equipment is the training of its use. Understanding how to administer oxygen therapy to animals and how to interact with a stressed pet will help first responders react to distressed pets quickly and safely. Dr. Daniels has taught 10 classes so far, and is working toward training additional first responders.
Pasco County Fire Rescue has several sets of Pet Oxygen Masks that Dr. Daniels donated, and several from a rescue group. However, it is essential to obtain a set of masks for every fire truck and we need your help.
Please email our hospital for further information and to learn how to order a set of Pet Oxygen Masks for your local firehouse.
Dr. Daniels responded to a house fire in Land O' Lakes. A neighbor entered the house and rescued a pet. Pasco County Fire Rescue first responders and Pasco County Sheriff Deputies assisted Dr. Daniels with oxygen therapy via a Pet Oxygen Mask which saved this pets life......
Does your local fire station have a set of Pet Oxygen Masks?

Pasco County Fire Rescue responded to a house fire today. Fire fighters pulled a family cat from the fire and used the Pet Oxygen Masks that we donated to save his life. They moved him to an air conditioned area, administered oxygen via the specially fitting Pet Oxygen Mask and continued to stabilize him. Chief R. Luter called Dr. Jo Ann Daniels from Central Pasco Veterinary Care to the scene, where she assessed the cat and arranged admission to Tampa Bay Veterinary Emergency Services where he was further treated for his smoke inhalation. After the fire was contained, one of fire fighters helping stabilize the cat came up to Dr. Daniels to let her know that how he used the special fitting cat mask, and remembered the training from the class Dr. Daniels taught.
A special thanks to ALL the first responders, fire fighters, paramedics, and incident commanders that cared so much about saving Pepe the cat. They worked tirelessly in rough conditions to ensure a successful outcome.
Also a special thanks to everyone that has supported our fund raising programs - ie) Pet Pictures with Santa Day - that gave the first responders the equipment they needed today !!!!
