Just getting together my whelping kit for forthcoming birth and I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything important.  Can people post their ideal whelping kits. I just want to make sure I am prepared and have enough of everything.  Thanks

Here's mine....

Puppy pads to whelp on
Heat pad
Vet bed for after whelping
Whelping box
Puppy milk and bottles
Hand sanitiser
Scissors (to cut cord instead of tearing if it needs to be done quickly)
Thread - to tie any bleeding cords
Dopram v
Nutri drops
Glucose for mum for in water during whelping and to mix into a gruel after birth made with honey, porridge, water and eggs (gives an energy boost and light on the stomach)
Cleaning spray, cloths, paper towel etc
Note book and pen
Diary
Scales
Towels to dry pup
Cardboard box and hot water bottle in preparation for any vet visit required during whelping

Others may have a different list but this is what works for me.

Great list from goldenmum.  I would add a decent gel to help any pups out if they get stuck.  I use the one below which is tons better than KY jelly.
