Specs

  • Made of plastic
  • Two sizes:

    • 1.5" X 2.5" for lambs above 70 lb

Benefits

  • Can save the life of the animal if done soon enough.
  • Very inexpensive to have on hand. If you feed lambs you should have both sizes.

How to Use

Insert tube into rectum (tapered end in) and tie off prolapse next to body with elastrator ring or umbilical tape (elastrator ring or tape should be in the center grove of the rectal ring). Prolapse section should slough off in a few days.

Precautions

  • The sooner you insert the ring the better the results.
  • Do not push the ring in too far or you will not be able to tie it off. (A loop of string through the ring will allow you to hold the ring in place. Remove the string once the ring is tied off.)

Elastic "O" rings expand enough to allow them to be slid over the tail or scrotum (including testicles) and then released at the desired point. Ring steadily squeezes shut all arteries supplying either area with blood. Without blood, tail & scrotum dry up and drop off over a period of 10 - 20 days.
