|Last Monday I treated a yearling ram with La200 for barn cough. That's been working for me this year. Last night he came up a little pneumonia-ish acting. Very dull, not too rattly yet, and grunting while he's breathing. Temp was 108. Yes, 108. Gave him Nuflor for 300# of sheep(he's in the 250-300 neighborhood) and banamine. Temp was down to 104 last night and 103 this morning. All per vet instructions.
Treated a ewe lamb yesterday morning with LA200 for cough as well. She ate fine last night, just acted a little dull. This morning she is completely off hay and grain and still somewhat dull. She will still run from me trying to catch her, but dull. Took her temp this morning- 104, but I'm not too confident in that because she was pushing it out pretty hard and I could only get it in half way. Plan on hitting her with nuflor today as well and banamine if the temperature goes up any more.
My barn is very well ventilated and cool in the heat. Neither have acted like they were too warm and are drinking great. No scours from either of them. They both have a little of a cough right when they get up, but then it quits.
Any ideas? I'm stumped, if anything gets worse or comes back, I'm planning on micotil or draxxin(yes, I know the dangers of micotil) and having the vet come out. I'm going to be gone for the next 4 days, so I want to get everything lined out for my dad on what to do. And then we show next weekend, so I want to get these guys safe to show. I can get them switched, but these are trained! Help please!

|Might I add that the ram is no longer sounding rattly and the ewe lamb has yet to sound rattly. I have not had respiratory problems in the past besides barn cough. These sheep have been here for 2 weeks now and no new sheep introduced since. It's only the 2 affected right now...knock in wood.|
