Bumblebear, how long is the fleece on those that have got it?

we had one go down with it 2 today and just happened to be the hairier ewe lamb they was spot on'd about amonth ago had to shear the hair of back end so could get to wound have scrubbed it clean with bit of hibi scrub and also sprayed with iodine, will have to watch all others now to did clip all lambs bums when ewes was sheared to try and reduce the chance of it happening.

Crovevct has worked for me ok, but using the recommended dose with their gun doesn't cover much of the sheep - only the most vulnerable areas. The label says it only protects the parts where it lands, so I apply it using an empty and washed out household spray bottle such as those used for window cleaning liquid, kitchen surface or bathroom cleaner etc. The volume of one trigger squeeze can be measured by spraying water into a syringe at the start, so you can still apply the right dose, but over a much larger area of the fleece. When using the spray bottle you have move it sharpish over the sheep to maximise the area treated.

Incidentally, why is the weight related dose so critical as per the label, when it's only an external treatment?

Thats kind of what I do - I use the 'spray' nozzle on a vetrazin gun and hold it well back from the sheep, delivering 5ml squirts, I find it a lot easier to make sure more of the surface of the sheep has a covering of product that way.


The weight dose is important because it is a nerve toxin and pretty nasty stuff.
