We have similar arrangements in France and I believe some Paris couturiers do made-to-measure CPAP carrying cases, made out of the skin of your pet's choice.

So does one's pet need to have a sleep study, or do you just get the machine and use it when your pet has a RUFF night? LOL

I will ask my veterinarian for an Rx. I worry when the Saint Bernard snores. This should help.

Don't forget that, starting this year, you can also count some pets as dependents on your income tax. Dogs get full credit, but cats only count as 3/5 of a dependent.

Get the free SleepyHead software here.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.

Ouch, good one... (Can't show this one to my wife unit)
I hope they include chickens in this, I had a couple roosters I need to get around to eating, but until then it would help with all the racket in the mornings to have a mask on them.

Most people don't realize that roosters crow because of sleep apnea. It's the bird equivalent of snoring in humans.
