Description:
Llamas and alpacas are a globally expanding area of interest in the farming world. Kept as pets, stud animals, livestock guardians, and farmed for fibre and meat, national herds continue to grow and are an increasingly frequent presentation for large animal vets. This book provides practical everyday veterinary advice on common conditions and surgical procedures. Basic husbandry, nutrition, examination, vaccines, analgesia, anaesthesia, dermatology and poisons are covered, together with medicine and surgery options arranged by body system. Zoonotic diseases are treated with particular interest as alpacas are a common petting farm animal. An important field guide for any veterinary practitioner, this book is also of interest to veterinary students and camelid breeders.
