Acceptance of orphan lambs by tranquilized ewes (Ovis aries)

, : Acceptance of orphan lambs by tranquilized ewes (Ovis aries). Animal Behaviour 19(Part 1): 75-79

In two experiments the effects of intrajugular tranquillizer (Trilafon containing 25 mg perphenazine per ml) injections on the acceptance of orphan lambs by ewes were investigated. With a 2-ml injection, five of six ewes reared orphan lambs to weaning compared with only one of six non-injected controls. None of three control ewes receiving a 1-ml dose, one of three receiving two 1-ml injections and two of three given one 2-ml injection reared their orphans. While the tranquillizer was effective in inducing ewes to orphans to suck, findings are insufficient to ascertain the most effective dosage levels, or the reasons for continual acceptance after tranquillizer effects diminish.
