Crias

Post criation exam 24 to 36 hours after birth to include evaluation of dam, cria, and IgG test (antibody test for passive transfer of antibody from dam to cria)

Cria’s navel should be dipped 3-4 times within a 24 hour period with chlorhexidine or dilute betadine solution.

BoSe (selenium injection) should be given to aid in prevention of white muscle disease.

Dental Care

Canine teeth or “fighting teeth” are present in all adult male camelids. These teeth are razor sharp. To avoid injuries, they should be trimmed or cut. After being trimmed once they should be examined yearly as they continue to grow for several years and may need to be cut again.

Camelids with incorrect alignment of incisor teeth should be examined; if alignment is poor, incisors miss the dental pad, continue to grow, and need to be trimmed periodically.

THESE ARE THE MOST BASIC elements of a camelid health care program. Please do not hesitate to contact us to schedule a consultation if you have special circumstances or have any further questions.
