This month has seen a large amount spent on the lambs who have come into our care. Every lamb receives the best attention that we can give them and sometimes this means numerous and expensive vet visits. Every life matters to us so we will never skimp on the essential health care even when the bills add into the thousands. ‘

This month Bella, Maisie, Harriet, Natalie, Reggie and Lou Lou all had vet visits. These visits added up to $4434. The following (including the money spent on nappies) is an itemised list of the areas on which this money was spent:

Consultations: $1236
Admission $110
Aftercare $230
Anaesthetic $204
Antibiotics $142
Anti-inflammatories $71
Fluids $170
Pain relief $16
Surgery fees $767
Xrays $388
CT scan $1000
Nappies $100

This of course cannot happen without the donations of our wonderful supporters. If you would like to make a donation to help us cover these, and future bills, please visit our donate page on our website. We greatly appreciate all donations, small and large.
