I put it on ciprofloxacin, smecta and kaolin, its feces get back to normal. I try to visualize how big the stomach is, and make sure I’m putting enough in that it’s gonna create a nice “oil slick” on the surface. They also go for the rear end too - easy access to the flesh.

This will save you a lot of wasted time on wrong diagnoses, because those can lead you down wrong paths of prevention and treatment, only to keep having lambs die while you figure out what’s really killing them. Hey there.
so sorry to hear about your sheep. Nice to see photos and learn of quick remedies. I caught the poor thing and it had labored breathing with a heavy phlegm feel. I had only ever treated adult bloat (grain bloat) but it is not effective for frothy bloat. There are now anti foaming agents that can help break the foam … Joy, baking soda is really meant more to treat acidosis, it raises the rumen pH when a heavy grain diet has caused too acid of an environment. ( Log Out / So you can get distracted trying to diagnose and treat one thing while something else kills them. This action could lead to excess gas production (similar to gas production in a dead animal, causing it to balloon up), which relates to bloat. I think it is true that sometimes animals that have frothy bloat don’t manage to start expelling the froth orally, but rather it just moves immediately to the stage where the airways are blocked and they die of suffocation.
Last month end, I got a 6 months old girl lamb died, unsure if it is enterotoxaemia. I had to kill the lamb because by the time I put it on the quad and had it at the shed it was almost dead.
The signs seem fairly non specific. But if this manifestation happens minutes after feeding grain, then choke is the more likely diagnosis. It sure is a strange manifestation, isn’t it? If the sheep is bloated, could it possibly be the result of some sort of poisoning?

However rabies is pretty rare in sheep *and* by no means always involves foaming at the mouth, whereas bloat or poisoning are VERY COMMON and definitely DO involve foaming at the mouth. I can't think of anything that she may have eaten as there isn't really much else to eat apart from grass - but you never know.
she beat me too it.
See full list of possible disease causes of Foaming at mouth Foaming at mouth: Tools. Nitrate Poisoning - (Signs of nitrate/nitrite poisoning appear suddenly. The interesting thing is that it’s appearing in regular ol’ lambs nursing on their mothers, at the age of 3-4 weeks, when they are just starting to transition to real ruminating. 2) Only two dead 3days apart. The lamb sadly died. The amount is kind of arbitrary and depends on the size of the lamb. Change ), Daily chronicles of our farm and collies (Border Collies, that is).
The vet put a tube down to try to expell the trapped gas but the foam blocked it and thats what makes it impossible for the gas to be expelled out the mouth- hence this being real frothy bloat.
My first thought about the blood was the same as Morri2 - crows. Today I found a lamb that was frothing at the mouth and acting very docile. My sheep was doing this and I found my answer here moments after. I have syringes in 3cc, 6cc, and 12cc, plus the big ones for tube feeding, so an idea of volume would be good) they were both looking good, and the one who was so foamy, drank the oil very promptly. I did not have a proper syringe but I think I managed to get over a teaspoon or more in and within seconds she stopped heaving and was back to grazing a minute later! It is slightly reassuring that you mentuon the “many things affecting them at once” – i have no vet close at hand (remote island) and i wish i had learnt how to PM (i did want to be a vet years ago) so i could put my mind at rest and know what kills them- this unknowning state it difficult to deal with- exactly as you say- because i feel i have no idea how to stop it happening again when i dont know what “it” was.
I tried oil and baking soda, but in vain. Change ), You are commenting using your Twitter account.
In my case i had antacid milk of magnesia and was surprised that my goat was almost immediately relieved of her symptoms (looking ill and desperately trying to swallow down the rising foam i could hear bubbling in her throat). You are here » Home » The Accidental Smallholder Forum » Livestock » Sheep » DEAD SHEEP !!! 3) Discharge was from the mouth, there was opnly small amount of blood but the solid matter was a whitish / pink material.
No she didnt get cast on her back,thanks caroline for your reply, does anyone think that foaming of the mouth is relivent or is that something they can do if distressed before they die? Yet temperature measures at 39 degree celsius.
But I find with choke, you can also tell they are swallowing and swallowing, trying to move that stuck piece of whatever. Where as when it’s just froth coming up from the stomach, they are more just coughing, trying to expel all the foam, but not swallow. | The Double Portion Ranch.
© The Accidental Smallholder Ltd 2003-2020. You have just saved my 6 month old hand reared lamb who has over eaten (we have excessive grass this spring and summer in NZ) and was very distressed by the amount of froth (as was I). And, of course, clostridium tetani (tetanus) everyone is familiar with, a bacteria that’s common in the soil and can enter through a wound and cause toxicity. The lamb sadly died. Lambs with frothy bloat are acting like they feel like they’re gonna die- like any of us would feel and act if we had massive amounts of foam uncontrollably emanating from our throats.
When you say 'one of my older ewes' - how old was she? By the time I got back out with some oil (and amount would be a lovely idea.
It is really hard to guess what killed a lamb unless you open them up and look, and often when you do, it’s not what you thought.
Thank you! ( Log Out / If there is definitely no pecking then again perhaps something to do with the death throws.
Our grass is going bananas in this weather, which is probably fuelling excellent milk production, as well as feeding the lambs some prime forage. Clostridium perfringens types C and D are bacteria that are normal in the intestines, but can sometimes proliferate in a high nutrition diet, and tip the balance in toxicity. It might also be a sign of a lung problem. Our two bottle feeders are slowly getting introduced and developing their rumens. This lamb had NO foam emanating from her mouth or nose, but her rumen/ stomach was bloated. that give clues to what was going on. )), +((!++(!!)+!!+!!+!!+!!+!!+!!+)+(!++(!!)+!!)+(!++(!!)+!!+!!+!!+!!+!!+!!)+(!+-(!!))+(!++(!!)+!!+!!)+(+!!)+(!++(!!)+!!+!!+!!+!!)+(!++(!!)+!!+!!)+(!++(!!)+!!+!!+!!+!!+!!))/+((!++(!!)+!!+!!+)+(!++(!!)+!!+!!)+(!++(!!)+!!+!!+!!+!!)+(+!!)+(!++(!!)+!!+!!+!!+!!+!!)+(!++(!!)-)+(!++(!!)-)+(!++(!!)+!!+!!+!!+!!+!!)+(!++(!!)+!!+!!+!!+!!+!!+!!+!! So far the pasture has been great! It is more “choke” than “bloat”- you might see it in sheep guzling down grain and suddenly they stop, walk backwards and start coughing up foam. I was amazed to see that after one drench (10ml syringe) with the solution, our lamb just wanted to drink the rest on his own! hi there, i only just found this info tho it is some years old as what you describe is exactly what i was looking for a remedy for- but it is not actually frothy bloat as such. If you can visualize what’s happening in there, “soap bubbles” are filling up the rumen, and pushing up against the valve at the top of the rumen, and spilling up into the esophagus. But acidosis is generally not the primary cause of bloat, in either form. This computer-generated list may be inaccurate or incomplete.
Yuck! There might be a tenuous relationship between the two, in that over-feeding grain can cause a situation where the rumen microbes can’t keep up with digesting it, it starts to ferment, creating acids, which then kill off some of the microbes.
Bloat is more of a complex brew of chemistry that causes excess production of gasses, either in free form, or in froth form. You have an amazing blog! Suffolk x romneys and Texel X with Romney Tup, Shetlands and Southdown Tup, Oh!
Might this one get infected of the same unknown disease? I just had both of my bottle lambs go suddenly from yelling for milk to coughing and sneezing (one, more mucus than foam, the other, as you said, like a volcano!) Frothy Bloat: t his causes due to consumption of legume forages, grazing in cereal pasture or wet grass pastures. Definitely when you have a lamb die, have a vet teach you how to do a necropsy, and eventually you can do them on your own. death rare in sheep – paralysis of throat – cannot swallow – dribbles saliva – flaccid protruding tongue – may lie paralysed and motionless for hours before dying quietly from respiratory failure. We provide help, support and advice for smallholders and aspiring smallholders. Mouth breathing, weak and rapid heartbeat, low body temperature, extreme apprehension, anxious behavior, muscular weakness, and foaming at the mouth are symptomatic of this illness) (I'll keep thinking) Mike I can't think of any haemorrhagic diseases of sheep - but maybe someone with more knowledge will recognise the symptoms. But a big 50 lb lamb, I’d be inclined to do more, 12cc would be good.
Today I find the muscle just underneath its ears twitching uncontrollably and its muscles are hot. So they may have pneumonia and a worm load, or low-grade acidosis and an intestinal infection. They are prone to bloat because of their gorging habit when the bucket is re-filled with milk. Helen, I think doing post-mortems is more about experience, and just doing them over and over. Hi Andy.
