Customer Question

Hi, my friends 7 sheep got into grain bin yesterday and are doing very poorly. She is giving baking soda . Is there anything else she can do without having a vet make a visit. She is not in financial position to do that.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about this poor sheep's situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

How are they just now?

What signs is she seeing (since 7 sheep may distribute the grain enough to avoid severe signs)?

Are they gums pink or pale/white? Any severe bloating, diarrhea, or breathing changes?
