You've just jogged my memory, I had a few cases couple of years back I did them with betamox la it took over a week for them to recover, I'm just not being patient enough. ThanksIn my experience betamox will work. Give them a second jab with a bit of Terramycin spray
I'm a stingy bugger and always check the price beforehand!!! But the old thing if it works it's cheap. If they were still limping after paying that I think I'd be shooting the lot!We had an outbreak in the shed last spring. Alamycin wasn't touching it so vet advised using zactran. It worked really well but beware! It's about £180 per bottle without vat. We had used five or six bottles before the bill arrived!
Is it just a one off dose of Tylan? Or several?We had a vet meeting in the Spring where this was discussed. Our vet was recommending a big im dose of Tylan. IIRC it was 10ml for a ewe, split 5ml at 2 sites. (I now use that as a quarantine jab for anything coming in).
Someone at the meeting was saying they had an outbreak just as they started lambing a couple of years ago. They ran everything through a Tylan/Pharmasin footbath daily for 3 days and it cleared it up. He reckoned they not seen any since.
The vet was saying one dose of 10ml, split over 2 sites (it's thick stuff). Costs about £28/100ml, so still around £2.80/sheep!Is it just a one off dose of Tylan? Or several?
Doesn't work if they're really lame as they don't put the bad foot down in the water if they can help it. Obviously it does help to stop it spreading to others though.I think I'd be more inclined to try the ab footbath route if there were a big number effected, just down to cost.
