Seal of Essex CountyPets and their owners can breathe easier in the city of Windsor, and county of Essex, Ontario, as the Essex County Veterinary Association donated ten animal-friendly oxygen mask sets to the various fire departments in Windsor and the county on March 21.

The sets (which contain three pet masks, three sets of tubes, and a bag to carry them in) cost around CA$150 each.

Essex County Veterinary Association President Kim Quinn said the masks could accommodate many different animals:

Essex County is located just south of Detroit, Michigan, at the southernmost tip of Ontario, between Lake Erie and Lake Saint Clair.
