Does your canine need an extra boost? Is she dragging her paws around the house? Perhaps they just need a breath of fresh air — or a burst of oxygen.
The Air Press, which has more than 20 oxygen bars across Japan, has opened its first oxygen bar specifically for dogs in Tokyo.
The dogs are placed in an air-tight cylinder and oxygen is pumped in the unit. A 30 minute oxygen treatment costs $18.
The owner of the dog oxygen bar said: “If you do not live in a city, you can let your dogs run around a huge place like in the highlands, freely. But in the Tokyo area, home space is very limited while dog walks are only occasional. So it will be very difficult for dogs to stay in good condition without this extra health support.”
Pet owners said their dogs enjoy the experience and they see a change in their dog’s attitude and energy level after a treatment at the oxygen bar. They said their dogs are enthusiastic and “barking with vigor.”
