Before you ask, yes, I already posted this on backyardherds.com but I haven't gotten a response. What drugs can we give sheep? The reason I am asking is because my 4-H sheep show is on Friday. However, this Wednesday when I went to my leader's house for 4-H I noticed my showmanship sheep, Dixie, was limping/hobbling a little with her left front hoof. We caught her and looked at her feet and there was mud clumped in her hooves so we scraped it out and thought that she would be back to normal in a day or two. Today I went to the farm to see how she was doing but she was worse and she was limping with her back left hoof too. While catching her we noticed that two other sheep in her pen (including my friend's showmanship sheep) were limping too. We noticed that all the sheep that go out to the big pasture were limping a little but all the rams and lambs that stay in pens near the barn were fine. Thats when we got it... Lyme. The dogs had gotten it not too long ago and it is big in our area. So now the question is what can we do for them?? We were thinking that just to get through the fair we could give them some pain medication to stop the limping and slow the disease until after the fair, and after we can look into what we can give them to get rid of the Lyme. So, we are back to the original question, what can we give them?
