This lab is half my battle :leap: , at least the prices are reasonable.

Now I have to find out where I can have the blood drawn. :sigh:


:idea: Maybe the vet will draw the blood and then I'll send it in for analysis.


I could learn to draw it myself. :shocked:


How did all of you who draw their own blood learn to do it :shrug:

Ok thanks. I drew the blood today. It wasn't hard. I have watched the vet draw horse blood plenty of times and I am trained in Phlebotomy so it was really easy! You just shave their neck, place your finger firmly on their neck and the vein will pop right out at you. My mom held while I stuck. Everyone was good except Star who had to twist and turn and scream. Only got about 2 cc's. We will see if thats enough.

Now if I could just trade disbudding with someone.....

Oh and they talk about discount shipping if you give ups a certain number?
My 4 doelings are all under a year and came from CAE negative herds. When they are a year old I want to test them. I hope to have mastered this technique by that time. I'll have to find some good goat anatomy material, visual and written instructions for the techniique and observe the technique before trying it myself.

Thanks for these sites, things are looking alot better! :cool:
