NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The Nashville Pet Emergency Clinic donated 25 pet oxygen masks to the Nashville Fire Department on Friday.

Nashville Mayor Megan Barry was on hand to help accept the donation of masks, which can be used on dogs and cats of all sizes.

“Dogs and cats are beloved members of our families who should be given life-saving care when needed,” said Mayor Barry.

The masks are designed to fit over an animals face and mouth to administer oxygen following smoke inhalation.

The Nashville Pet Emergency Clinic has provided after-hours emergency care for the greater Nashville and surrounding areas since 1977. They have three facilities in Goodlettsville, Nashville and Murfreesboro.
