Other People's Animals

Other People’s Animals is a section driven mainly by Elizabeth – our vet in training.  As part of her application to vet school she has to gain experience working with animals.  Whilst much of this experience has not been caught on film, every Easter the Science Rocks team heads over to Somerset and Spring Grove Alpacas and Rare Breeds to help out with lambing.  We have made a series of informative ‘Lambwatch’ videos looking at what really happens during lambing. Elizabeth gets to help out with worming, feet trimming, injections, and lamb care as well as generally learning from the Shepherd and Shepherdess, Scott and Naomi. A word of warning – these films are slightly longer than the usual, so settle in with a cuppa.  A second warning – some of these videos include footage showing lamb births and are not for the squeamish.
