Gauze swabs can be handy during whelping for a few reasons:

  • Cleaning and Drying: Gauze swabs are absorbent and can clean and dry newborn puppies. Maintaining a clean and hygienic environment for the puppies and the mother is important.
  • Assisting with the Whelping Process: Sometimes, a mother dog may need assistance during whelping. Gauze swabs can gently help pull a puppy if necessary, providing a better grip without causing harm.
  • Stimulating Breathing: Newborn puppies often need some stimulation to start breathing. Gently rubbing a gauze swab on their bodies can help stimulate their respiratory system and encourage breathing.
  • Removing Fluids: After birth, puppies may have fluids on their bodies that need to be removed, especially the face and mouth. Gauze swabs can carefully wipe away any excess fluids, ensuring the puppies are clean and have clear airways.
  • Cord Clamping: Gauze swabs can be helpful when tying off and clamping the puppies’ umbilical cords. Gauze is typically used to wipe down the cord for an easier procedure.

It’s important to note that while gauze swabs can be helpful in these situations, it’s recommended to have a veterinarian’s guidance during the whelping process, especially if complications arise. Always prioritise the mother’s and her puppies’ health and well-being, and seek professional assistance if needed.
