Is the Dri-top suitable for whelping bitches?

No not really.

  • Giving birth is a messy and time consuming business at the best of times and whilst the Dri-top will protect the Inner, the Slip-cover may be permanently blood-stained if it is not removed immediately for washing, something you won’t want to do during the whelping.
  • The Dri-top is not designed to allow the Slip-cover to remain soiled and on the bed for long periods but rather to protect the Inner bed in the short term.
  • The Slip-cover still needs to be washed as soon as practicable.
  • In any case most birthing pets like to go and find somewhere very private to whelp, or somewhere massively inconvenient to you, so they probably won’t choose to use the bed anyway.
