Special Care Nursery

Welcome to our special care nursery. This page is dedicated to our puppies who need a little extra care. This could be anything from premature or tiny puppies who need an incubator and or oxygen, to those who have aspirated on milk while feeding from their mother. The use of the incubator allows puppies to remain in a warm and stable environment when being tube or bottle fed. This purchase was made after consultation with my highly valued Reproduction Specialist team so we are able to offer further dedicated treatment at home while under their guidence. As a mum of two premature babies who were born 12 and 8 weeks early, I understand the benefits of such specialized equipment in the management of sick and tiny babies. I am so grateful to have such a wonderful set up at home. I am willing to help other breeders under the guidence of their own vets if I can, I am just a phone call away.


Using an infant incubator has great advantages, not only does it provide the puppy with a safe, stable temperature controlled environment but they are very user friendly making it so much easier while tubing or bottle feeding a puppy.
This little puppy made great progress while receiving the extra care needed in the safety and warmth of an incubator. She didn't need oxygen therapy but it was reassuring to have it on hand.
This puppy had it's rear legs taped together to stop it from rolling on it's belly which can cause them to go flat chested. This usually corrects itself once they are up on their feet, some just need a little extra help getting there. The toy lamb in the photo offers extra comfort with the sounds of a heart beat so the puppy won't feel all alone.
My only regret about buying an incubator is not having it when I first started breeding..highly recommend an infant incubator over small animal incubators for all the reasons I have stated. So much more user friendly, love it and would never want to be without it again.
All babies love to snuggle up with toys.
Although these babies look to be a reasonable size, they were very small. I will supplement a puppy to prevent them going backwards, doing this in the incubator for a few days can make a huge difference giving them a better start in life.
