When it comes to whelping, you want someone who treats your bitch and her pups like their own to ensure they get the best start in life!! We know what's at stake and we know how to handle complicated situations.
We specialize in difficult breeds like Brachycephalic breeds (flat faced dogs). There tends to be more complications during the overall breeding process that causes issues for pups. However, it is very rewarding to assist a litter that thrives and grows up to become mans best friend.
When possible, puppies should always be cared for by mom, mothers milk is best! However, occasionally problems can arise where the mom refuses to or is unable to feed her puppies. This leaves them with little chance of survival without the full time care necessary for their health and nourishment. Using many different learned techniques, we will bottle/tube feed to give them the highest chance of survival. Additional supplements are encouraged as well due to the lack of receiving mom's nutrient rich milk.
We realize that dog owners may want to breed their bitch, but do not have the facilities, time, or experience to give the litter the best possible start that we all want for our puppies. DMV Whelping provides a variety of services for those needing/wanting assistance with raising litters. We have options to choose from to best suit your needs!
