Puppy Litter Birth First Aid Kit

It is fundamental that a couple days before the scheduled birth date you have a complete first aid kit that will be useful when the time comes; you have to bear in mind and many times she can give birth in the middle of the night, on a holiday or weekend. It's probable that gave everything goes well, some of the products that you have acquired loans the needed, but it's better to be safe than sorry, because certainly some of these products that I will describe are not sold just like that in any pharmacy without a prescription.

Having said that, here is the list of things you'll need:

  • Round tipped surgical scissors
  • Surgical silk number 0
  • 5 and 10 cc disposable syringes
  • disposable needles for intramuscular and subcutaneous injections
  • 96° alcohol
  • rosemary alcohol
  • gauze, bandages and cotton
  • disposable, sterile latex gloves
  • Vaseline tubes
  • Betadine
  • Uterine relaxant of veterinarian use -- injectable
  • Oxitocic hormones -- injectable
  • Metabolism regulator with vitamin B12 – injectable
  • Injectable antihemorrhagic
  • respiratory stimulant in drops
  • double action bactericide in suspension
  • Wide spectrum bactericide (cotrimoxazol) in pills
  • Pulverizer for the local treatment of secondary retention and acceleration of uterine involution
  • anti-septic solution and two containers where to disinfect all surgical material
  • unbreakable fast-read thermometer, preferably liquid crystal,
  • glucose nursing bottles for newly born

Apart from this first aid kit, you will also need to have all of what follows:

  • Powdered maternity milk, specially for puppies
  • water heater
  • specific sized baby bottles
  • baby bottle heater
  • electric blanket
  • flexible arm lamp, preferably Halogen
  • big wastebasket (with a top) and garbage bags
  • enough hand towels
  • telephone or cell phone
  • the emergency telephone numbers of the veterinarian or clinic at hand

All this seems a bit exaggerated, I know, but it will enormously simplify your work and, besides, help you rest assured that you have all you need for a good birth experience. Don't forget that your nerves can betray you, and in spite of all the births that you might have assisted, you can always bump into a last-minute surprise.
