I just came in from the evening feeding, and one of my wethers is coughing, and his ears are a bit droopy..
He jumped right in and was eating great. Trotted right over with all the other wethers, to claim his share.
Just this cough, and the ears.
They had shots and worming, about 2-3 months ago. Should I give him a booster?

No, to be honest, I've never done that. How exactly do I go about it?
LOL, never mind, I am really not that stupid!
All I have though are regular mercury thermometers. That should be fine, right?

Ok, he has a normal temp.
I'm thinking I need to worm him again.
I'll just do all the wethers tomorrow morning. As by my way of thinking, if he is wormy, so are the rest of them.

What is the wait time for Ivermectin in them, before slaughter? I have one who is scheduled to go to the processor on the 27th, I can't recall if it is 2 or 3 weeks..

This morning he is fine. No droopy ears, no cough..actually jumped up and did one f those twisty leaps with one of the others when they saw me with their breakfast.

I'm still worming them this afternoon, but what a weirdo he is!:huh:
