A practitioner’s approach to individual sheep medicine- tackling common problems from large flocks through to pet sheep
A flock is made up of individuals and without the capacity to perform a thorough examination of individual sheep the practitioner, whether experienced or not is disadvantaged in tacking flock problems. Equally, many individual sheep are valuable in their own right, whether economically or emotionally, and the owners of these animals expect a high level of investigation and care. This presentation will cover how to perform a thorough examination of the sick sheep, how to apply adjunctive diagnostics in an appropriate manner and how to approach common problems affecting the individual sheep.
