Charlene, I am so glad all went well. As I have said before, you gals are so lucky to have such a wonderful facility so close.
I hate disbudding. Glad I didn't have to do it on the goats.

Looks like the same thing my vet used on Dickens. He says it will do a good job for 3 or 4 days, but it's a week tomorrow and the flies haven't bothered it at all. Glad the procedures are behind you for now Charlene.

I was back at WSU vet school today and asked exactly what the spray was. The spray is an aluminum spray that helps to keep the flies away and the site protected from any infection.

Alu-Shield. Sounds like something useful to have in our doctor kits.
