Online Catalogue | Plastic Whelping box (Reuseable) step by step guide | STEP C Select a Pet Heat Pad
In their early days of life a newborn puppy is totally dependant on warmth being provided for it. One common cause for premature deaths is hypothermia. There are a number of forms of heating available but we recommend using a heat pad as these are low wattage and so low cost to run and provide warmth where it is needed (under the pups) rather than heating the atmosphere. We have three sizes available and all are listed complete with a fleece cover. We suggest these are used on top of vet fleece, not under it. No more than half of the box floor should be heated. These are vinyl pads and so not suitable for pets that chew, if you would prefer metal pads then please follow this Link Spare covers are available in the "Pet heat Pads" section of the shopPlease select a size from the drop down menu below.
