What’s wrong here?
« on: January 12, 2023, 08:56:38 pm »
I have a 2 year old Ryeland ram who we brought in 2 weeks ago due to him losing condition and falling behind the rest. Vet Suspected fluke and we drenched accordingly. He’s been in with ad lib hay, regular lamb finishers and sugar beet twice a day, a mineral bucket and access outside to grass. However he seems to have only gotten thinner and tonight deteriorated further. He is staggering as if the legs want to give outand breathing heavily I have injected trymox and given a mineral drench tonight. Could it be listeria or pneumonia or something deeper rooted? I’ll be sending the video to the vet first thing in the morning.

Hope your ram is ok. It could be a deterioration of his initial problem which seems to have affected him over a period of time. Did the vet test for fluke? Or it could be something secondary to the initial problem. We'd be stabbing in the dark. I would of called vet yesterday evening.


There is good info about fluke on the NADIS site.

May well be a combination of all of it - fluke, pneumonia and possibly lungworm? Pale membranes? Temperature?


He still there this morning?


If listerioris then his symptoms sound that he too far gone for AB's to help - need to be high doses and lots of it, and penicillin based ones as far as I know.

If he had serious fluke then it depends on what you treated it with ,  Triclabendazole  flukicdes need a reasonably healthy liver to work

We dosed with endo fluke on 29th December. Maybe a small improvement today but still uncomfortable and agitated.
