  • Miracle syringe for feeding tubes. I also love their miracle nipple sets

I’ve used mine every single litter even just to keep them warm and help dry off between whelping. Must have if whelping bulldogs/frenchies

  • Pro fleece liners for whelping box

  • Walmart 4x4 fleece blankets or similar cuts from craft store to line on top of whelping box beddding

  • Primo pads cut to fit your whelping box (will make it water proof and easy to disinfect
