A little about Petnap and our Whelping Box and heat pads
From 2012 we are now operating from a 4000 sq ft purpose built warehouse and distribution centre in Hampshire. From here we are proud to be employing local workers to help with packing and despatch and hope to recruit more staff in June 2012
Established in 1973, Petnap has long history of manufacturing and supplying heated beds and pads and whelping boxes to the pet industry. We manufacture heated pet beds, pet bed heaters, pet heat pad, heat mats, heater pads, cat heat pads kittening heat mats, dog heat mats and heated dog, and cat beds. We sell a wide range of whelping boxes and whelping kits. The whelping box is made from double walled corrugated cardboard or PVC plastic. This whelping box also comes with whelping box puppy rails and fleece bedding (as an option). Having a disposable whelping box avoids the potential problems of cross contamination as the whelping box can be disposed over after the whelping. We make sure the whole thing is disposable including the puppy rails which are 22mm wooden dowelling cut to size. Whelping box and Whelping boxes, and petnap kittening products are our passion.
When deciding on which size whelping box or kittening box to use the best method is to actually measure the bitch. Measure her from nose to base of tail, add four inches to accomodate for the puppy rails and then select a whelping box that will allow her to lay flat. For example if she measures 29 inches from nose to base of tail then add four inches, which gives you 33 inches and select the next size up, which will be 36 inch square. This will then give her enough room to lay flat in the whelping box.
Getting a scan is always a good idea before you buy a whelping box. You may find that your bitch is due to have a very large litter, or it may even be a phantom pregnancy, either way it is best to know before you select your Petnap box.
In April 2010 Petnap also introduced a range of plastic re-usable whelping boxes. Using a petnap plastic kittening whelping box or dog whelping box allows users to re-use the whelping boxes over and over. This is a consideration if you are thinking about more litters in the future.
The Petnap whelping kit also for kittening is designed to provide a range of the essential items you will require for the coming whelping. Rather than shop around a variety of suppliers for each item we have brought them all together in one pack. Each kit includes essential items such as: forceps, sterile scissors, bulb aspiraitors, puppy formula, even scales and a torch. In fact approximately 40 items brought together in one kit. this is an ideal addition to your Petnap whelping box or whelping boxes. we also supply a kittening kit.
Adding a Petnap pet heat pad to your whelping box is also an excellent option to consider when caring for the new born pups or kittening. A petnap pet heat pad can provide valuable warmth for the newborn pups in the whelping box and give mum a well earned rest. If you decide against a pet heat pad please make sure the room is kept warm at all times and away from draughts. For kittening and new born pups cannot control their own body temperature and so rely on the bitch for heat, when she is not there they are dependant on you providing that warmth for them.
We have been making the Petnap metal pet heat pad in the UK since 1973 and currently have three sizes available. In the Autumn of 2009 we introduced an even larger size due to popular demand.
