Just a little info
Ok you probably all already know this but when worming for fluke be careful as it can becomem resistant as we are finding out the bad way

Isn't your vet treating it? Or is it real bad?

We took her to the vet and he gave us some vitamin injections and I calorie boost because she is really weak. And they gave us a new anti-fluke thing as the fead merchent mis sold us the last one as it was the same one we had before just be a different name and they said it was different. So we are treating her but it doesn't look good as she can't eat or stand and vet wasn't to shaw she would make it but we are trying really hard to save her as she is a good ewe.

Went out to check on her and give her medicine and she was alot worse and couldn't even hold her head up so we made the desicition to get her put to sleep and the vet as just been and my dad is outside burrying her as I type.

Got the faeces test back to day and it turns out she didn't have fluke she had a bad infestation of round worms which is incredably anoying as I had wormed her resently. So now the other sheep have to be rewormed every 4 weeks which is going to be fun in this weather luckly I am on my christmas holiday starting tommorow (yeah now more school for a while)
