Whelping service

We are pleased to now offer a whelping service for newborn puppies.  We are in Derby. The care in the first few weeks of a puppies life is crucial and is a 24 hour around the clock commitment. Some people either feel too inexperienced or simply don’t have the time due to work/family commitments.

We have extensive experience in rearing puppies especially british bulldogs which are one of the more trickier breeds to rear even when everything runs smoothly.

We of course always try and feed pups from mum but when this isn’t possible we are experienced in tube feeding and hand rearing. We also have experience in raising premature puppies.

What we offer

  • 24 hour care of both Mum & puppies
  • Milk substitute if the mother doesn’t have milk or the puppy is failing to latch.
  • Designated hygienic area fitted with heating & air conditioning for the puppies and mum separate from other rooms for those first few weeks.
  • CCTV & security measures in place
  • Updates & pictures of the puppies
  • Incubator & oxygen as and when required
  • Hygienic fully wipeable whelping box
  • Fresh bedding & washing
  • Heat pads
  • Puppy weaning (if required)
  • Tube feeding
  • Daily weighing & monitoring of puppies toilet movements to ensure they are thriving
  • Liaison with our vet for advice on any concerns we have

We have specialist equipment including incubators & oxygen when needed. Our vet is also very close by and on 24 hour call.

You can be sure that the best possible care will be given to your bitch and puppies when they are in our care.

Please get in touch for further information and if you have a litter planned please contact me as soon as possible.
