Fleece Whelping Box Pads
(color may vary from photo)

Thick absorbent fleece makes the perfect whelping box liner or crate pad. Heavy weight backing makes it difficult for "Mom" to dig under bedding. Fleece also provides good traction for pups, helping to promote good muscle development in legs.

Fleece is very dense so if you are lining a whelping box you will need 2 separate pieces in order for it to fit in your washing machine unless your box is 2 X 2 or smaller. If you have a very large washing machine you might be able to get a 3 X 3 in, but it will be a tight fit.

Its nice to have 3-4 pieces, that way 1 or 2 can be in the wash and Mom still has the box covered.

Standard sizes: (can be easily trimmed if your box varies slightly from these dimensions)

2 X 2 feet: $10.50

3 X 1.5 feet (2 pieces needed to cover a 3 X 3 box) $12.50 each

4 X 2 feet (2 pieces are needed to cover a 4 X 4 whelping box) $18.80 each

5 X 2 feet ( 3 pieces are needed to cover a 5 X 6 whelping box) $25.50 each
