The vet asked the farmer if Cynthia had been frolicking in the top meadows. The farmer scratched his head and said not to his knowledge. This sheep has got a nasty case of bloat said the vet which can happen from eating too much clover!
I need to act quickly to save her life and puncture her rumen to let out the gas. The farmer agreed and after shaving and cleaning the area he performed the procedure.
Before their eyes Cynthia’s swollen belly reduced dramatically and her breathing was not as shallow. The vet quickly stitched up the wound and gave her a few injections to fight off any infections.
Cynthia opened her eyes to see bright lights above her, she felt as if she was floating, was she on her way to heaven!
