Default Banamine and disbudding?????

I read that you can give banamine to kids a half hour before disbudding to ease the pain. Since it is an anti-inflammatory, I thought it would help?

Does anyone do this?????

We have never tried it. We don't give our kids and pain killers (besides their bottle, witch seems to be enough ) I have never heard of giving kids Banamine before disbudding

It might help a bit with the pain. I personally don't use it unless there is some kind of issue after castrating or disbudding...actually I have yet to use it for either, but would if needed. My kids get quickly disbudded and put back with mom and they're good...they don't seem to be in much pain at all after being disbudded.

Disbudding large buds or doing it incorrectly, that's when I would want to make sure they got the banamine.

If you can feel the buds starting to come in, then yes, he should be ok to do them tomorrow. 4-5 days old is about the soonest i'd disbud if the buds were ready.

Yes, if you can feel them, they can be burned. Actually, when my vet taught me how to disbudd my kids she gave them banamine and I have just always used it. Maybe I don't need to...

LOL, we had nearly the same thoughts...

I've been thinking the same thing. People say it doesn't give them much pain because it burns the nerve endings right away, but I would question that: they sure scream a lot. It seems like a painkiller would be a good idea. Has anyone who tried it noticed a difference?

I don't see the need for Banamie. I think a big part of the kid screaming is the fact that they are restrained. I am sure it hurts but not lingering pain.

I agree with Milkmaid. How could we possibly think this isn't a painful procedure both during and after? Animals (especially prey animals) have developed an amazing ability to mask pain so that predators won't single them out. I understand disbudding is kind of a necessary evil for most dairy goats but there's no good reason why we can't make it more humane.
