Much, much better now!

Here is Abraham this morning with the rest of the flock. Outside, eating. He looks almost normal again! I gave him another shot of LA200 and B complex. I will be giving him Red Cell every day for awhile, just to boost his red cell level and give him the iron he's needing apparently. Anemia is not a good thing.

His jaw is nearly back to his normal size again. I am so happy to see this. I only wish now that I had known to do all this when Lucinda was so sick last year. I could have saved her.

Thank you all who have been concerned about him. I think he's on the uphill climb now.

I'm glad he's doing better. I'd still do 2 more doses of wormer at 10 day intervals to knock out all cycles of the worms.

Kris said...

Yes, I will do that. I have been reading more about this and I'm glad I used the Dectomax and Valbazen and Ivomec. I'll get more Ivomec and use that in 8 days. Then maybe Valbazen 10 days later. He looks so much better now.

How is your girl? I hope she's better too. Are you giving her any Red Cell?

Betty Ann said...

Yay! He looks so much better!

Kristin said...

She's so much better. I'm just trying to get some weight on her now. I gave her b-complex and pig iron. I've not been able to find Red Cell here and I keep forgetting to look online.

Now I'm just giving her extra grain each day so she's not a bag of bones.

Tractor Supply has it there. I get mine at the co-op and it's a generic brand but the same thing and less expensive.

What's pig iron?

Kristin said...

Swine iron I guess. It's just an iron shot. I've never seen Red Cell at our TSC and I've looked!

Kris said...

As long as they're getting iron to build their blood back up, it's good.

I'm having 2nd thoughts now about Abraham. All day he's been by himself. When he stands, he's shaky. He looks bad. His testicles are hanging and looks like there's extra skin hanging longer. Weird. I gave him a CDT shot this morning. I moved the other sheep next door and he stayed again. I just don't know what else to do now.
