Can some one give me the details on this. A friend just told me she had a terrible winter. Lost about 15 babies, a doe, four ewes and her ram to it. Her vet told her she must have brought an infected animal in, she does that. I always thought it came from eating rotten vegetation. The vet also said it could be transmitted from animal to animal. He did not take any blood or bodies to test simply made an 'experienced' judgment. The adults would go off in a corner and be very listless, head cocked and tongue hanging out. A day or so later they would die. The kids would be born dead or die shortly after. I am not sure if they were there for any births or if they know what to do to try save a kid. Any info would be helpful, for my benefit not her's. It is too late for her.
