Heronbank Cavaliers take great pride in our pedigree cavalier puppies. We take care to give them the very best start in life that we can. The mother and father are heart and eye checked before mating to ensure they are healthy and not carrying any problems which may transmit to the puppies. Before and during the whelping we use a homoeopathic “birthing pack” supplied by Charles Barrett, our homoeopathist, which contains remedies and treatments for most – if not all – possible eventualities connected with the birthing process eg., uterine inertia, lack of milk, little maternal instinct (common following a C-Section), mastitis etc..
Our puppies are born in our lounge where they receive individual attention during their births. When they are suckling well, and we are reasonably sure all the puppies have been delivered, they and their mother are transferred into our “dog room”. This ensures that mother can bond with her babies undisturbed. Here we have our webcam so you can view proceedings close-up, and we can check on the mother and pups without disturbing her.
The utmost care is taken to prevent the introduction and spread of disease, by the use of a specially formulated Cromessol disinfectant daily and the use of disinfectant foot-baths when we have puppies. This disinfectant is approved by DEPRA for use against bacteria, fungi, viruses & spores. It is effective protection against Canine Parvo Virus, Kennel Cough, and can also be used against foot & mouth disease and foul-pest.
Being pedigree puppies they are Kennel Club Registered and benefit from having 4 weeks free insurance from the date of sale through the Kennel Club. Our adults have their eyes and hearts checked by a Kennel Club Approved Ophthalmic Veterinarian, and the puppies are vet-checked twice, the first time, within 12 hours of their birth, and also when they have their vaccination just before they leave us.
