geonni banner Posted December 3, 2011 Report Share Posted December 3, 2011 I'm still trying to figure out the logistics of keeping a few head of sheep, should I get the situation I'm angling for. I wondered, do you have the vet out for your sheep much? Can you give an estimate - ball park - of what to expect to pay for veterinary care per year, per head? I realize that things can go smoothly some of the time, and then all sorts of things can go wrong. I'm assuming that worming and vaccinations (do sheep need vaccinations?) could be done by me. But are there routine veterinary chores like feet trimming that I might not be able to do? Do people euthanize very ill sheep, or do you shoot them? Sorry about so many questions, but as much as I want to have sheep, I want to make sure I can handle it - physically and financially. They may not be dogs, but I want to do right by them, or not have them if I can't. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
