    I took Bonnie Blue to see my vet today just for a general "healthy baby" exam and she has tearing eyes....well, after a thorough exam and a very thorough exam as well as staining of her eyes, checking the third eyelid etc...se has blocked tear ducts! Nothing major according to my vet and they will likely be fine as she grows. And a CLEAR FECAL :leap: So I was commended on having a good cocci and parasite prevention as well as having " a beautifully made nigi doeling, conformation is perfect" this quoted from the Dr. I am THRILLED! And Bonnie was a perfect little lady, even when Dr Hess was checking her eyes. And this 7 week and 3 days old doeling weighs 17 lbs 4 oz..... and all of this only cost me $40.


    Sorry....was and still am really happy over this just HAD to tell someone!

    I feel great...my head is still "big" :ROFL:

    Cocci prevention....ALL does got DiMethox preventive doses acording to weight for a week and then 1 dose a week for weeks, this started 5 weeks before the babies were due, thus preventing the shedding of the cocci oocysts( according to Dr Hess)
    Kids started on the same at 3 weeks for 1 week and then once a week til they leave.

    Worming is with the ivercare paste in the spring and in the fall and of course after the does deliver BUT I have had fecals done before hand so I know the numbers are managed.

    I do triple my girls weights for dosing and using a 3 cc syringe I know that 2 1/2 cc is for a 500# horse dose.....tripling the weights on my girls gets me close to the 250# horse dose...so they get 2 cc of the paste....babies get 1/2 cc at 6 weeks then again 10 days later. It's hard to figure a dose for tripling kid weight so I feel safe giving them 1/2 cc. Since it's best to overdose than under dose and it won't hurt them I'd rather go with this amount.

    Also, Dr Hess had told me that she had been seeing some resistance to the ivermectins in her herd of sheep so she is going with the pyrantal wormers, but til I have a resistence here, I'm to stick with what works til then.
