Last years lamb - watery belly?
« on: March 02, 2014, 12:04:02 pm »
Hello, just checking last years lambs this morning (hep p ect) and one has lots of scouring around his nether regions. When we turned him over there was lots of sloshing sound from his belly which appeared to be a bit bloated. Any ideas? No obvious signs of anything wrong bar scouring so have drenched again. :thinking:
I am sure someone out there can recommend next course of action / give us a clue as to the problem.
Thanks so much. Fishy.

What have you drenched with?

Don't wrestle with pigs, they will love it and you will just get all muddy.

He couldn't have stones in his urethra, causing his bladder to not empty, could he?  More likely if he's been eating a cake not specifically for males, and/or been eating dry forage, possibly without drinking adequate water.

I Posted this last year. The ewe went on to a full recovery although due to the horrendous changeable weather i kept her in  for some time. She didn't have a lamb i'm not sure if she slipped it early on or if there was an underlying health issue but shes fine now I don't know if the sloshy belly is the same as with your lamb.
