We study a quasi-two-dimensional dipolar gas at finite, but ultralow, temperatures using the classical field approximation. The method, already used for a contact interacting gas, is extended here to samples with a weakly interacting long-range interatomic potential. We present statistical properties of the system for the current experiment with chromium and compare them with statistics for atoms with larger magnetic dipole moments. Significant enhancement of the third-order correlation function, relevant for the particle losses, is found.
