What IF Hollywood Writers Included Pet Oxygen Masks in Scripts?

Did you watch Walt Disney's movie "Bolt"? It's a cartoon about a dog named Bolt.
Bolt is a movie star who thinks his life as a super hero is real...humans insist on making him believe that. The illusion comes to a screeching halt when he is shipped to NY by mistake. He then needs to make his way back to CA as a real dog.

Without being a party pooper, there is a scene at the end where Bolt & his human "Penny" are trapped in a burning structure. Penny is saved by Bolt, of course, but she has suffered from smoke inhalation and once the ambulance takes her away she is given O2 via a non-rebreather mask (NRB) and Bolt is placed in the ambulance, on her stretcher, but with NO O2 oxygen therapy.

In the script you see Bolt affected by the smoke. The camera zooms in Penny's NRB...

The premise of the movie is that Bolt is a real dog. And real dogs can be heros! Yet we can't extent them the courtesy of a pet oxygen mask.

What if Hollywood writers got the point?
What if we stopped making it cool to let a dog of any size ride shotgun?
What if it was cool to buckle up the pet?
What if all K9 officers where issued super cool ballistic vests?
What if any super hero pet who rescues humans from fires could be given O2 on the scene with pet oxygen masks?

You say...with IFs...we could make cheese talk...Walt Disney CAN!
So we just need to make that IF a Hollywood option.

Guinea Pigs can be be in under water spy suits...a dog can get O2 thru a pet oxygen mask, NO? The option wasn't there for Lassie...but it is available this decade...lets make it happen!

What's crazier?
A Pet oxygen mask to help a super hero dog or a guinea pig night vision goggle and blow torch?
If you have any ideas, thoughts, suggestions as to how to make that happen please do share.
Wag it Out!
