Description In the Box Technical Specs
The Heated Whelping Nest reduces mortality in newborn puppies, and produces healthier, more vigorous pups. 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 for the first 7-10 days.

The nest can be adjusted from 85 to 100°F. It is preset at 95°F but can be set lower for heat pad or higher for stress pad.

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 less stressful. The Heated Whelping Nest is an OKIE DOG SUPPLY customer favorite!

Our Experience:
In the last 5 years, we've had to have c-sections on three different females. Each and every time, the females have enjoyed laying on the whelping nest before and after surgery. The pups have all taken easily to the nest. We've never had a problem, not even in the dead of winter, with pups getting cold. The warm, gentle heat also seemed to help heal the incision area on the mama dogs and helped to prevent any kind of weeping or build up of dirt.

On rainy days or cold nights, or after a day of running, our older dog, Ginger , is stiff the next morning and it's clear her joints hurt. We lay her pillow over top of the whelping nest and she lays there happy all day long. She's usually ready by the next morning to run some rabbits for a little while, then we place her back on the nest and her pillow and she sleeps soundly.
This nest is simply something we cannot see doing without. It's made a world of difference in our kennel!
