injections
« on: January 05, 2013, 07:27:31 pm »
Hi im new to sheep keeping and im wondering what injections ect should be done routinely, they have all just been vaccinated for scab as a local farmer has had it and we have a footpath through field and also goes through neigbouring sheep farmers land, they where wormed with combinex about 1 month ago, but im unsure what i should be protecting them against as most are breeding ewes with a few store lambs.

Could also Google SCOPS - Sustainable Control of Parasites in Sheep.  Lots of info on the EBLEX site, too.

pygmy goats, gsd, border collie, scots dumpys, cochins, araucanas, shetland ducks and geese,  marrans, and pea fowl in a pear tree.

Return them to your veterinary practise, along with used meds containers.
Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing

Live in a cohousing community with small farm for our own use.  Dairy cows (rearing their own calves for beef), pigs, sheep for meat and fleece, ducks and hens for eggs, veg and fruit growing
