JS51 What to do Before You Call the Vet: First Aid for Your Flock with Dr. Andrea Loar, DVM

Unfortunately, it happens to almost every shepherd eventually….you come to check on your flock and one of your sheep is down or acting unusually. What should you do before you call the vet? Dr. Loar will take you through the steps to safely care for your animal and determine whether veterinary intervention is needed. She will also give information about simple first aid that can be done by the shepherd and how to prepare your animal for your vet’s arrival if simple first aid methods are not sufficient.

JS51 Class Fee: $20.

Dr. Andrea Loar, DVM, grew up raising market lambs in the Howard County 4-H program. After working in the veterinary field for many years as a Registered Veterinary Technician, she returned to school and graduated from the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2014. Dr. Loar is the owner of Windy’s Legacy Livestock Reproduction Services, a practice specializing in food animal and small ruminant reproduction and neonatal care. She also works for the Mountain View Animal Emergency Clinic in Hagerstown, MD.
