British firefighters give pets miniature oxygen masks

Pets as small as hamsters, snakes and rabbits are being given a lifeline by British firefighters as new miniature oxygen masks are installed at fire stations across the UK.

The life-saving devices come in three sizes, the largest for dogs, a medium version for cats and little dogs and the smallest for pets like rabbits, guinea pigs and hamsters.

The masks, which are ordered in from America at a cost of £90 a set, have even been used in the US on tortoises and snakes.

So far 16 fire stations have received the sets, which are entirely funded by charitable donations to the organisation Smokey Paws.
