It is not uncommon for rescued lambs to develop some type of infection during the first few months of life. Antibiotics are usually prescribed by a vet to combat the infection. Lambs are given a probiotic powder called Protexin to restore the natural balance of gut bacteria. By donating to this cause you will be helping to ensure the continued health of the lambs.
Approximately 15 million lambs die on Australian farms every year during their first 48 hours of life. Lamb Care Australia is a not for profit organisation that fosters and rehomes some of these lambs who are born during the lambing season across Victoria.
