Anexa Vets provide emergency care 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We recommend having a fully stocked lambing kit, that is topped up when needed.

Your lambing/calving kit should have the following (Just in case…)

  • Gloves, lubricant and calving and lambing ropes
  • Injectable Metabolic treatments – injectable calcium, magnesium and glucose, talk to your veterinarian about the best options
  • Oral metabolic treatments – calcium preparations and starter drenches for cows eg. Jumpstart, calol, and energy drenches eg. acetol/ketol or calcium boluses eg. transition bolus
  • Antibiotics, painkillers, needles and syringes
  • Bearing retainers, or needles and tape
  • Rubber rings and applicator
  • Iodine navel spray
  • Calf scour treatments, rehydration (electrolyte) sachets and drenching tubes for lambs and calves
  • Heat lamp or hot box for reheating hypothermic lambs and calves
  • Lamb covers/jackets
