Seasonal Guidance

1. Due to the mild wet weather we have all be experiencing, please keep an eye out for liver fluke. Keep a good eye on your animals and look out for abnormal behavior such as progressive loss of body condition, anemia, pale membranes and in severe cases swelling below the jaw. Liver fluke is easily treated so keep your eyes open for signs. If you are worried, please talk to your vet. A simple fecal worm count for Liver Fluke can be done by your vet. if you are at all concerned.

2.    Keep a keen eye on your animals’ feet.  With the wet weather we have had this winter, with more forecasted to come, camelids can suffer with foot problems. If you think there may be a problem, don’t wait to see if it clears up on its own. Get professional advice from your vet as foot problems in camelids can take a long time to get over if left for any length of time.

3.    Don’t forget, never use left over hard feed from the winter. The food can produce toxins if kept for any length of time that can harm your animals.
