The Commander went out to feed the rams yesterday and he noticed that Killarney had a huge gash over his right eye. I broke out the medicine kit and went out to do my best.
He has a cut about three inches long and it was infected. It really needs to be stitched but no vet will come out to treat sheep in this area so I have to do the best with what I have. I started him on a 5 day cycle of antibiotics along with a shot of iron and a B12 shot. I doused the area with an antibiotic ointment and tried to seal the cut with skin glue and blue coat.
I'm checking on him every day and he seems to be doing OK. He needs to pull through because he is my breeding ram for the Cascades this year.
I am an Ocicat. My duties include; security (rodents), counter intelligence (predators), infiltration (sneaking) and night surveillance.
I live in NE Minnesota on 10 wooded acres with; my best friend Mocha, three dogs, chickens, Guinea Hens, Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Cascade Sheep, Icelandic sheep, and a few humans.
When we moved here it was completely wooded, our plan is to turn this property into a working homestead.
