A comprehensive whelping kit for the more competent breeder – This kit contains all the items we consider essential to have when preparing for whelping. All instruments are medical grade and when stated sterile are sealed in clean packaging and supplied in date. We have not included many items that we would call ‘standard household items’ as this would only increase shipping costs.
All items supplied have been used by ourselves in whelping and over the years we have used everything supplied below (not always in one whelping but it’s better to have some of these things and not need them rather than not have them). We strongly recommend that feeding tubes are used under the guidance of a veterinary professional or other suitable competent person. We have raised puppies on bottles and by tube feeding in the past and have found tube feeding (when done correctly) to be a far safer method of feeding infant puppies.

5 x Cord Clamps – Clamping the cord if you get a bleeder with another puppy/kitten on route (much quicker and easier than trying to tie them off) We have used these a few times on our own puppies we remove as soon as we feel cord has stopped bleeding which from our own experience is usually within 30 mins – If you are unsure if bleeding will have stopped when clamp is removed but you now have time between puppies/kittens tie the cord with dental floss/Cotton just below clamp then remove.
