Melorich Australian Multigenerational Labradoodles

We have 2 rooms designed and dedicated to the pups. A birthing room which also serves as a pen area and a second whelping area as well.
 
This is the primary room:

The pups are nursed in the boxed area (2nd picture) and stay there until they are between 3 and 4 weeks of age and then we convert an area of the room into an enclosed living space for the pups. The second room is all glass with easy access to the outdoors. Once the pups outgrow the whelping box we set up pens (3rd picture)which have an attached heated crate(s) for sleeping (we crate train). The pens are lined with dry decking and adsorbent pads to keep the pups clean, dry, and sanitary. Rooms are cleaned and disinfected at least three times daily and painted as well as steam cleaned after each litter. Pups watch Animal Planet quietly in the background all day.

In the back of above picture #1 and as seen below (4th picture) is an incubator which also can be used for emergency transport. There are both emergency and non emergency uses and we believe every pup deserves the best possible care both here and in a hospital setting as well. The incubator can be used right after birthing to help maintain or raise body temperature. The room is kept at 85 degrees "F" for the first week and 80 degrees weeks two through four and then between 70 to 75 thereafter. The incubator, when used is usually at between 96 degrees to 101 depending on the usage

In the cabinet supporting the incubator (picture 1 and 5) are whelping supplies and emergency medications as well as all injectables not requiring refrigeration. All other meds are kept in the food prep room pictured below. We are skilled at tube feeding, rehydrating and treating pups who may be in need. We have a high rate of success

Pups are fed a variety of foods. First they are weaned with reconstituted pure goats milk. Then the milk is blended into a puree of the dry food we use and discussed elsewhere. We also add Natures Variety frozen raw Venison mixture to the food ( this raw can be mixed with dry kibble)

WE SPARE NO EXPENSE IN TESTING BREED STOCK, ACQUIRING THE BEST BREED STOCK, AND IN THE NURTURING AND HEALTHCARE OF ALL OF OUR PUPS!!!
