Last week I put some pictures on the Blackbelly Facebook page of a ewe which
looked sick. I had some responses indicating worms so I did give some Valbazen
to her and her 3 week old lambs. I would like your opinion and you could look
at the Facebook page to see what was said. The ewe had a somewhat bloated
appearance and he was not eating or nursing for 2 days. I also saw her struggle
for several minutes to get some pee out, which was thick and strangely colored.
One lamb died that day.
One day after the Valbazen (yesterday) she was acting more normal and today she
is completely normal. Her bloated body is gone, she is much thinner. Could this
have just been too much stress for her trying to feed three lambs considering
her small stature. I find it a little weird that worming medication could help
her in only one day?
