Yearly Health Care Routine for Pet Sheep

1. sheering 

Sheep should be sheared once per year.  The time of year you will sheer the sheep depends on where you live, here in Scotland we don't sheer until around May but if you live in a hotter country you will have to sheer earlier in the year.  

2. Feet Trimming 

A sheep's feet will grow continuously so they need to be trimmed regularly.  You can find tutorials online to teach you how to do it and most animal feed shops will sell tools to do it.  Check your sheep's feet every month to see when they need to be trimmed.  

3.  Drenching 

Drenching sheep is how you give you sheep treatments.  This can be done multiple times a year for different treatments.  So a worming drench is done one month, and another the next month.  Other types of drenches for sheep is mite treatment, disease prevention and vitamin for ill sheep.  


I am not any type of animal expert but instead only an animal lover who wants to share her tips.  Please consult relevant animal specialists and do not only take my advice.
