Guinea pig rescued from a house fire and given oxygen to help him pull through. Nice to see the fire service taking the lives of our little squeakers so seriously smile

Aww , poor Rodney shock

Hopefully he got the oxygen quick enough and no smoke damage. Poor soul.

Aww bless him! I had a horrible nightmare about this once and slightly ridiculously I've kept a pet carrier in the conservatory ever since in case of emergency evacuation.

I know, bless! Its really nice to see the lengths they went to - first to get him, then to give him oxygen with the little mask. I'd never thought about pet masks before but it's a great idea to have them for more animals than just dogs.

I had a pet evacuation plan of who would hold the gpig in their pocket! Not sure it would work in rl though

I read a story a while ago about a firefighter giving a hamster oxygen after being rescued from a burning building.

Now that's what I call dedication smile
