The Braidwood vet came out today to do a whole bunch of things. They were great.
This is what we did:
- Snowy bunny got her calici virus vaccine
- The goats got their vaccine (1ml glenvac), CAE and JD blood test (results in a while) and Monty got Cartrophen
- Milton and Ravel got castrated with twilight sedation and local anaesthetic
- Milton Ravel and Ariel got microcipped.
All went smoothly a part from Milton who had a couple of glitches. He had trouble clotting so he bled a bit but that eventually worked. What was more of a shock and a scare was that he had a bit of a seizure after he had the microchip put in. Usually we put the into hip into the neck, but other breeders said it should go behind the left ear. So we tried that this time and it was not fun! The vet was quick with cortisone but the seizure settled when Damian blew in his face. Go figure. His sedation also seemed to have hit him a bit harder than Ravel. He walked around not very long after but then had another long sitting down section, away from the herd, I sat with him until he got up and ran to the herd.
After castration they also got long lasting penicillin. Vet suggested vaccinating them soon as the vaccine contains anti tetanus. Will do soon.
So proud of all my animals, they all behaved so well!!
