Oxygen therapy

In some cases, animals that come to the emergency centre are not able to breathe very well on their own. We are on-standby to provide emergency treatment, which may include oxygen therapy. Oxygen can be given to animals via a face mask (shown), nasal prongs that sit in the nostrils, nasal catheter (tube in the nostril), or a dedicated oxygen cage. In severe cases, were are able to offer assisted ventilation (IPPV). This is a type of life-support, whereby a machine breathes for the animal. This is sometimes needed in cases of tick paralysis or snake bite. Other causes of breathing difficulty in animals include trauma (e.g. motor vehicle accident), severe pneumonia, lung cancer, viral infection or upper airway blockage.
