Sheep Health

Disease and health problems of sheep are closely associated with management and nutrition. Medication cannot cure results of poor management and poor nutrition.

The first step in controlling a disease problem is to identify the disease. Producers should seek professional help from a qualified veterinarian. Autopsies and accurate health records can be helpful in improving the overall health program. Any time drugs are administered to livestock, it is imperative that the drugs are used strictly as directed on the label, unless otherwise directed by a veterinarian.
