My lil man got banded yesterday by our vet I was wondering from all the pioneers who have had this done is there anything I need to watch out for or change in his diet? He still nurses once in a while. He will be 10 wks 2morrow, they still get grain 2x/day, about 1/4c but I gave him alphalpha pellets making him think he was getting same as sister & momma, he did sneak a few pellets (ADM) from sister.
Also how long does it normally take? I have a vest on him, the vet said he will probably still be potent (if he is already) for about 10 days so keeping vest on him just in case.

Watch for any infection at the site. Keep sprayed with somthing to keep flies off, like blu kote.. He may be lethargic a few days but beyond that, we want to see him get back to normal behavior.
