Of all the things you have to do with livestock, disbudding is the most scary to me. I can give shots (note: even though my husband is a Dentist, and gives shots to humans every day, amoung other scary things, he refuses to give shots to the animals?), but, at least at first I'll leave the disbudding to my vet.
Have any of you had trouble with livestock vets? The office were my vet works out of has apparently stopped their livestock operations...she is still going to see some of her patients...on her own, she's still going to work in the office on pets, but she's doing the livestock part time...I guess I'm "one of the good ones" I think that means I pay my vet bills on time. So, she's happy to keep me on. I've heard some vet offices are dropping their livestock clients altogether...I know they make most of their money from pets...but we still need them?
