Animal Interactions

This page is to track the interactions with individual animals requiring the use of equipment, such as clippers or sprays:

25th March – put some spot-on onto Boris – she’s itching a lot and has lice.  Hopefully it will sort it out for her.

18th March – trimmed and sprayed Boris’ hooves.  One had quite bad scald, the others were in good shape.

19th February – treated white-faced Suffolk in home field for footrot on her back left hoof.

11th February – trimmed Boris’ hooves and treated them for footrot.  The front two were fairly bad, the others were fine.  Treated Ishy for footrot as well, she had one hoof which was relatively bad, the others were fine.  Looked at White Face’s front hooves, but couldn’t see any problems.
