Savi spends most of her day and night in the whelping box taking excellent care of her pups. The wire you see behind her is the probe for the digital thermometer. It is critical that the pups do not get cold and we keep a close eye on the temperature in the box, keeping it at about 85 degrees, with the help of a heat lamp. The puppies cannot regulate their body temperature and keeping them warm is critical or they can die. The other two most important things keeping pups alive and thriving is making sure they do not get dehydrated or any infections.
