Essex county animals to breathe easier after house fires
Pets 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:
Even a hamster, gerbil or a guinea pig, you may even be able to fit them entirely inside of it.
Essex County is located just south of Detroit, Michigan, at the southernmost tip of Ontario, between Lake Erie and Lake Saint Clair.
