We use all of this equipment in
our own puppy nursery and love the quality.
There are lesser quality elastrators on the market that are flimsy and
not recommended for this delicate work. Save
over purchasing items separately.
NOTE: Mendwell is recommended to
accelerate healthy skin repair and reduce scarring. It is an all-natural therapeutic grade essential oil blend alternative to traditional antibiotics and antifungals and can be used for
healthy skin repair for the entire family including animals and humans. In our practice we see wounds healing in
about half the normal time and with significantly less scarring. (Can be purchased separately. Also, a Deluxe Tail Docking/Dewclaw Removal Kit is
also available that includes Mendwell at a discounted price.)

BREEDS: We have gotten a lot of positive
feedback from kitten breeders and small breed dog breeders and it appears that
this Kit is appropriate for them as well. The bands are 1/8” diameter and have
been used successfully on very tiny tails as well as on large breed tails.
If you are whelping puppies, you might want to add more forceps to your order so that you can clamp the umbilical cord in two places when the placenta is not yet delivered - cut between and keep the cord from going back inside while you clean the puppy. Clamp at 90 degree angle to bitch so she isn't injured by the forceps. This can help prevent umbilical hernia. I like to have several of both sizes available in my whelping kit in case I have puppies born back to back.
