    One of my sheep developed wool maggots. Luckily, I sheared her and there were no leisions. Some crawled up into her picky opening, but I dosed her with a good dose of mineral oil and that should flush them. I also gave her a shot of Tylen. In all my years of owning sheep, I've never experienced this before. Is there anything else I can do for her?

    Spray with KRS. You should be able to get it at the feed store or livestock supply.
