Bowl-shaped heating pad simulates a natural nest and reduces mortality in newborn puppies. Also helps produce healthier, more vigorous pups. For the first week to 10 days of their lives, puppies cannot retain their own body temperature. Since their ideal body temperature should be 96°-100°F, providing supplemental heat with the Heated Whelping Nest is crucial to keeping pups warm and helping increase their rate of weight gain during those critical first days. The Heated Whelping Nest also keeps puppies together in one area, making the mother's job much less stressful.
The Heated Whelping Nest maintains a constant, even temperature regardless of the ambient/environmental temperature. Simply set your preferred temperature (from 90°-100°F). The nest's electronic heat sensor then constantly gauges the temperature and adjusts it accordingly. No need to use newspapers or blankets. Plus, the Heated Whelping Nest is easy for the mother to keep clean.
The Heated Whelping Nest features two sturdy cords - a 6-ft power cord that runs to the electrical outlet, and a 5-1/2-ft cord ending in a small (2-1/4" x 1-1/4" x 3/4") box with a red LED light, which confirms that the unit is functioning properly. You can hang or place this indicator box anywhere outside of the whelping box/area.
The USA-made Heated Whelping Nest measures 23" dia overall and features an 18" dia heater. Use the Heated Whelping Nest with a 120V A/C grounded plug only.
