At Cloud Peak Veterinary Services, we recognize the importance of providing quality care for ruminant animals. Wellness care is the bedrock for these animals, and includes comprehensive wellness exams, routine vaccinations, illness diagnosis and dental exams.
Included in the ruminant animal category are sheep, goats, llamas and bison. These animals have a unique digestive system, with a four-compartment stomach. The rumen is the largest of these, and is the main digestive center. Ruminant animals do not completely chew the grass or vegetation they eat before they swallow. This partially chewed food is stored in the rumen, where it is broken down into balls of “cud.” The “cud” is then regurgitated into the animal’s mouth, where it is chewed and swallowed again.
If your animal exhibits any of the following signs, contact us immediately:
Lack of appetite
Lethargy or inactivity
Signs of pain (crying out or withdrawing from touch)
Limping or walking in circles
Has consumed toxic plants, such as rhododendrons, azaleas, mountain laurel, chokecherry
Has consumed the wrong grain feed or an excessive amount of feed
Once you arrive, we will perform a physical exam, including checking the animal’s heart rate and organ system function. We may order blood work and fecal analysis as well, and if necessary, an ultrasound or x-ray.
An integral part of preventing disease in your sheep, goats, llamas, etc. is to have them vaccinated. There are two core vaccines we always recommend:
CDT (Clostridium Perfringens Types C & D – Tetanus Toxoid)
Other vaccinations can be customized to individual farms, based on necessity.
We are dedicated to quality care and compassionate treatment of all animals to enhance their health, productivity, and well being.
