In addition to vet expenses, Lamb Care Australia also regularly spends money on medication and medical supplies. They may spend from approximately $20 for a box of 100 syringes up to $400 for a 4 litre container of colostrum. Colostrum is the first form of milk produced by the ewe. It contains carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals and proteins (antibodies) that fight disease-causing agents such as bacteria and viruses. Without this initial absorption of colostrum the health of the lamb will be severely compromised. As a safeguard, when a newborn lamb is rescued, they are fed colostrum to replace that which they possibly missed when separated from their mother. Without this they will be unable to develop a strong immune system resulting in minimal chance of survival. By donating $30 to the full price of this item you will be helping to save more lives.
