Gap between HeptavacP and Wormer?
« on: April 25, 2012, 07:06:58 pm »
Have I remembered something correctly from last year that you need to have a certain gap between HeptvacP and worming or did I dream it  :-\
Might have been Ivermectin and Heptavac? not sure. Can anyone help please?  thank you!

Novice here, but when we gave our in lamb ewes their Heptavac booster, the vet told us that we could worm and fluke at the same time to save stressing them at a later date. I did specifically ask him if it was okay for them to have everything at the same time especially as they were expecting and he said that it was fine.

Thank you in the hills  :)

Now just trying to work out how to weigh them without having to stand on the scales clutching a wiggling (large)lamb. Can't find the heart girth chart (not sure it works on sheep as it does goats?)

If you are not willing to try a balancing act on the bathroom scales, there are digital scales available from Argos designed for weighing travel luggage. A plastic sack with a hole for each leg and a loop of string from each corner makes a good sling. Stand on a bale if you are not tall enough to lift the whole rig off the ground.

I do both jobs together, saves gathering them again.

Stand on the scales, far more entertaining....  :D That's all I do, no additional weighing stuff here, though PDO's solution sounds like a good one - though not entirely sure a hanging, wriggling lamb would be much easier  :sheep:
