1 & 2) All puppies are trained to this potty area. They do great with it! It makes potty training so much faster & cleaner. Just place a disposable potty pad in the pan & toss out when dirty. 4) We recommend 256 disinfectant. We keep a litter box pan with a soaked towel of it at our door. Any time we come back in the house we step in the pan, on the soaked towel to sanitize our shoes. There are so many virus & germs that can harm puppies. This help to eliminate those risk & helps keep them healthy & safe. 4) Our pups leave here eating Purina Pro Plan Lamb & Rice puppy food. 5) These probiotics are great to help with the stress of the puppies' transition to their new home & great for anytime of an upset stomach. 6) We recommend using a 30 or 36in kennel to house your pup. 7) Playpens are great to let the little one run around safely. 8) Potty pads you can't have too many of these with pups. 9) Hypoallergic puppy shampoo is a great choice to keep those pups clean & smelling great. 10) NuVet Plus is an amazing product that gives your new puppy a boost to create a strong healthy immune system. We recommend the powder for puppies. The Wafers are a bit large for puppies.
1) We recommend starting females on folate once breed & give until pups are born. 2 & 3) We recommend giving a prenatal once bred & given until pups are born. Most do well with the gummy, but others like the meaty treat type. 4 & 5) An ultrasound can be done 30days after last breeding to confirm pregnancy. You will need ultrasound gel to get a good view.
1) Car adapter, so you can plug in a heating pad on the way home from c-section at the vet. 2) We strongly recommend an incubator. It’s a safe way to keep them warm & not have to worry. This brand is great, you can adjust temp & humidity to spot the puppies needs. You can also easily add oxygen. We keep our puppies in this for the first 2 weeks. We place puppies with mom to nurse every feeding. 3) Oxygen concentrato, we use this for the first week of life. We start at 3L then gradually work down to off over a week. It’s also a must have when treating pneumonia in puppies. 4) Whelping boxes are great to allow a special space just for mom & babies. 5) Once puppies are ready to leave the incubator we place them in a 36in kennel. Always must have a heating pad under their bedding. 6) If you do not have the space for a Whelping box. A 48in kennel is a great alternative. Still gives mom & babies the space. But you can put the incubator & puppy kennel on top. Just add a sturdy piece of wood on top of moms kennel. 7) Once puppies are walking well they are moved to a playpen. 8) We always recommend covering or wrapping the kennels. It keeps the gust of air out & keeps the warmth in. 9) You will need lots & lots of blankets. 10) Washable pee pads are a must have, be sure to get plenty. 11 & 12) We use this potty are & puppies do great. 13) These are the smaller potty pads that we use for the potty area. 14) Large potty pads. 15) Foam is great to add under the puppy bedding to prevent flat chest. 16) This electric nasal sucker is great, it has very small tips that fit in pups nostrils. 17) bulb sucker is great for the nose, but even more so to clear out the throat. 18) nasal saline it great if you have a congested pup or to help clear out milk from nose. Just add a few drops to the nose then suction. 19 & 20) Thermometer & lube are must haves, to insure your pups are staying warm. 21) A scale it needed to watch daily weight of pups. 22) Baby Wipes, to stimulate pups to potty & to keep them clean. 23, 24, & 25) Puppy support, nursemate, & nutrical are all necessities to give puppies the best support, immune system, calories, & sugars. 26, 27, & 28) Heating pads are great to place under bedding. Heat lamps are easy to attach to kennel or whelping box. Snuggle safe heat disk are microwaveable. They stay warm for many hours. It’s always best to have one as a back up. 29, 30, 31, & 32) Nebulizer is needed for congested or pneumonia puppies. I recommend a nebulizer box, it cuts down on the stress of holding a mask to the puppies face. This box is also great to bring home your newborns from the vet & it comes with a heating pad. It’s always best to change out nebulizer parts between litters. Saline is the recommended solution to nebulize with. 33) This elastic ribbon is great for neck bands, safe & cut to fit. 34 & 35) Puppy- Bac is a great formula. I love Esbilac Goat for puppies with sensitive stomachs. 36 & 37) Bottles that hold 15 & 60mls, perfect for puppies. 38) I found that puppies like the latex nipples the best. 39 & 40) Syringe feeding with nipples is a great way to hand feed. 41 & 42) It’s always good to have a tube feeding kit. For puppies not nursing or cleft pups. I like the 5fr for frenchies & 8fr for english. 43) Milk stations are amazing, great if mom does not have enough milk to feed all her pups or orphaned litters. 44) Puppy feeding saucers are great. 45) Gripe water & Gas relief are must haves. Helps with gas, upset stomach, & colic. 46 & 47) A&D creams are great to help with irritated bottom, which they commonly get. 48 &49) Dewormers 50 & 51) Anti Diarrhea paste & liquid. 52) We recommeme all puppies be microchipped. 53) Vetasan is great for all skin issues. 54) It’s great to have an assortment of sized syringes. 55, 56, & 57) Cal-Sorb is a quick way to get in calcium to your mom dog. It’s best to continue with calcium tablets for those moms in need. We also recommend moms be on a multi momma vitamin while nursing. 58 & 59) We love hypoallergenic shampoo for our pups & nail trims are a must every week. 60) Vinyl gloves 61) New skin is great if momma gets a small opening in her incision or if the pups umbilical cord comes off early & is bleeding. 62 & 63) 256 disinfectant & non toxic cleaner are must haves. 256 kills all germs & viruses. We use thus to clean floors, kennels, whelping boxes, & equipment. We use the non toxic cleaner around puppies & moms.
