Sick lamb
« on: May 04, 2021, 04:41:57 am »
Hey everyone,
This year doesnít seem to be a good lambing year as Iíve got another sick lamb. He is about 2 weeks old nice and filled out, all was fine until this morning I noticed he wouldnít get up or move. He can barely hold himself up if I stand him. He is trembling like muscle spasms and lethargic, wonít open his eyes and isnít very alert. I have done some searching and canít seem to narrow it down to what this could be. Any ideas? Iíve attached a picture and a video(let me know if you can view it).

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

Let go of who you are and become who you are meant to be.

Vet ASAP and if it dies get the vet to pm it as youíve said itís another one. Could be anything- pneumona, clostridial, but lambs go downhill quickly so no time for second guessing on the internet.
