Overview

Did you know that 30% of puppies die before weaning? The majority of those deaths are due to insufficient heat from an inconsistent heat source. Puppies cannot retain their own body temperature for the first week to 10 days of their lives. Since their ideal body temperature should be 96 to 100 degrees F, obviously supplemental heat is necessary. Now there are quite a number of heating aids on the market, but none that can maintain a constant, even temperature no matter what the surrounding environment. The Whelping Nest has an electronic heat sensor that constantly gauges the temperature and adjusts it accordingly. This maintained temperature, next to eating, is the most important element in a young puppy's life. You'll be surprised at the increased rate of gain and how much more healthy and vigorous your puppies will be. The dish shaped nest simulates a natural nest and serves the important function of keeping the pups all together in one area, making the female's job much less stressful.

This maintained temperature, next to eating, is the most important element in a young puppy's life. You'll be surprised at the increased rate of gain and how much more healthy and vigorous your puppies will be. The dish shaped nest simulates a natural nest and serves the important function of keeping the pups all together in one area, making the female's job much less stressful. You don't use newspapers or blankets with the whelping nest. The plastic surface of the dish and a finished floor are much easier for the female to keep clean, and you'll find she does a better job. Believe me, once you've used the whelping nest you'll never raise another litter without it.

WHELPING NEST FEATURES

  • Maintains a constant surface temperature.
  • Adjustable from 85 to 100 degrees fahrenheit.
  • Comes preset at 95 degrees (best for whelping) but can be set lower for heat pad or higher for stress pad.
  • Tough ABS plastic construction.
  • Remote LED status indicator.
  • 150 watt power consumption.
  • Recessed circular design meets the natural instincts of the mother and newborns.
  • 23" outside diameter.
  • Sealed to protect against moisture/urine.
  • When installed correctly there is no exposed wires or edges, this eliminates the chances of shock due to the dogs chewing on them.

The bottom line is that this product reduces the mortality rate of newborn pups and produces healthier more vigorous offspring which plays an important part in reducing stress on the mother.  If you save only one pup you have paid for the whelping nest.
