Steve Edwards is 40 minutes away from a veterinarian. Many ranchers are at least a day away from any vet being able to reach them. Steve has had to learn how to vet his animals and now he shows you how to do the same thing.
In this video, Steve shows you how to apply eye ointment to a mule that has moon blindness in the left eye. You can see the mule is in pain and the stress his eye is under because of the ulcer.
Watch Steve approach the mule, deal with him throwing his head trying to keep Steve away from his eye. He doesn’t want Steve to touch him.
You’ll see how Steve uses a humane twitch on the mule and utilizes an open and close motion to get the mule to relax.
