Kit includes professional medical equipment and instructions needed to dock tails and remove dewclaws on puppies or other infant animals 1-5 days of age with the least amount of pain or trauma.

I use all of this equipment in my own nursery and love the quality. There are lesser quality elastrators on the market that are not recommended for this delicate work. There are copycat docking kits that use the wrong equipment for puppies and can cause irreparable damage or death to puppies. Please purchase your docking kit here from a breeder with over 40 years of experience. We have sold thousands of these kits to satisfied breeders. Read the reviews!
Suitable for all breeds. This kit has been used by thousands of breeders of very large breeds as well as small breeds with birth weights 4oz and even below. The bands that come with the kit are 1/8” diameter and have
been used successfully on small to medium tails as well as on large breed tails. Bands are typically doubled over the elastrator prongs for very tiny puppies. Please order a set of 3/16" bands if you have a very tiny breed to make it easier to double the bands over the prongs. Detailed instructions are included for all size puppies.
Mendwell is recommended to
accelerate wound healing and reduce scarring. It is an all-natural therapeutic grade essential oil blend -
alternative to traditional products that are unsafe for the dam to ingest, and can be used for
healthy skin repair support 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.
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 prevents potential umbilical hernia. I like to have several sets of forceps in both sizes in my whelping kit in case I have puppies born back to back.
Note regarding the use of Hydrogen Peroxide for aftercare: It is a commonly held belief, backed by some studies, that hydrogen peroxide is a useful wound cleanser. However, more recent studies have found hydrogen peroxide to be toxic, or deadly, to cells otherwise involved in healing. A study published in the Journal of Athletic Training suggests using a saline solution instead. I have personally found that Mendwell accelerates the healing process beyond that of saline and reduces scarring as well.
