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.
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. Be cautious as there are also copycat docking kits that have shown up all over the Internet that use bands that aren't suitable for puppies and can cause irreparable damage and even death. Please purchase your kit here where you can be assured of the quality, experience and excellent instructions provided by over four decades of experience.

Mendwell is highly 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. Mendwell 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.

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. We like to have several of both sizes available in my whelping kit in case we have puppies born back to back.
