Sheep and Goats

Our practice provides preventative and therapeutic services for sheep and goat producers including:

  • Ultrasound-guided pregnancy diagnosis

  • Vaccinations and vaccine protocols

  • Fecal egg examinations and deworming recommendations

  • Disbudding/dehorning and castration

  • Veterinary Feed Directives (VFDs)

  • Sick sheep/goat exams and treatments

  • Lambing/kidding problems (dystocias)

Disbudding/Dehorning

We recommend that disbudding be performed before 2 weeks of age. At our clinic, disbudding is performed under sedation with local nerve blocks and appropriate pain medication. Dehorning can be performed at an older age, but there is a greater risk for infection and the growth of scurs (abnormal horns).
