    Sheep sponge

    We have been pulling the sponges out of ewes today and there is one we couldn’t find at all couldnt see or feel anything
    Could it have just come out ?
    If not what will happen to the ewe could it kill her being left in or will it pass ?

    I have known one get pulled out of a goat by another goat if that helps. A phone call to a vet should not cost you anything and will give you a better answer than what I can give you.

    It has happened to us in the past.
    It didn't kill the ewe but it did get infected inside her.
    I would seek the advice of a Vet as they might have a better idea of how to get the sponge out.
