A few days ago #Fraggle had the scours, I wormed her and they cleared up the next day. Although she has been treated with crovect to prevent flystrike I have checked her bum everyday for scours and or maggots. Yesterday james said she smelt odd - he has an excellent nose for flystrike. I checked and there were maggots. I carefully removed them, cut away her fleece, dagged her, gave her a pedicure and blue-spray and a jab for a small infection on top of her foot (she hadn't been limping). The good news is that today she is feeling much better, no sign of maggots, no real damage done and we treated all the sheep again with crovect.
