We had a scare...
Last week our ram lamb was down and we had to call the vet out. Call it newbie stupidity but he was anemic and full of worms. :( The vet gave him less than 50% chance of survival. We were all sad and worried for a few days wondering if Atlas was going to make it. Dr. M gave B instructions to give Atlas Vitamin B shots for a week. Within a day Atlas perked up and has been every day since. We are very thankful and will be learning from this lesson - better pasture rotation and checking the goats and sheep's eyelids for anemia more often.
Ever have a scare with a pet?
When I was 14, I had pet rats I raised. One broke her leg. My entire family insisted it was going to die but I refused to believe them. Instead, I took a popsicle stick, created two splints and wrapped the leg. I kept her a seperate cage with lots of old rags and massaged and exercised her leg everyday. She healed and lived.
