Nettex Prolapse Ewespoons
New! Prolapse retainers (commonly known as Ewespoons) hold a vaginal prolapse in place until the ewe can give birth. Every shepherd should have at least one on hand!
- Easy to use
- Low cost
For use with sheep and goats. Tie the attachment strings to a clump of wool (leave no slack). If there is no long wool, tie it to the two buckles of a prolapse harness.
- Dimensions: 10" x 6-1/8"
- Width of spoon: 1-3/4"
- String ties are 16" long
- Package of 4
- Made in United Kingdom
How to Use
- Clean off the prolapse with warm soapy water.
- Apply SuperLube™ and push the prolapse gently, but completely, back inside the ewe.
- Insert the spoon into the vulva.
- Tie the attachment strings to a clump of wool (leave no slack). If there is no long wool, tie it to the two buckles of a prolapse harness.
We rarely use this retainer on its own. If a ewe prolapes, we immediately use both a retainer and a harness. After the ewe stops straining (normally 2 to 3 days), we remove the retainer and somewhat loosen the harness.
