Hi all. So I now have 6 beautiful babies. Unfortunately I have no history on the mom's with regards to vaccinations so I have just vaccinated all the lambs with multivax. Anyone know how long I need to wait before i can deworm them after the vaccine has been given. As you cant deworm lambs that have not been vaccinated for pulpy kidney..

Personally I've never heard of this (may well just be my ignorance!). Pulpy kidney is due to entrotoxaemia from Clostridium perfringens and i'm struggling to think of a reason why a wormer can't be given. I usually worm my lambs about 2 weeks after the first dose and within about 2 weeks of the second dose of one of the vaccines available over here (I use Heptavac.P Plus). All lambs have done well on this regime.
