We are not veterinarians, but we can help you with routine healthcare activities that owners can typically perform. We can also teach you how to do these activities yourself.
We work closely with your veterinarian to make sure that your llamas receive the proper protection from local parasites and diseases. In California, certain vaccines such as rabies MUST be administered by your veterinarian.
Bev has years of health experience, first with people as a Registered Nurse, then as a long-time dog breeder and now as a llama owner.
We can help you with regular vaccinations and parasite protection (best done in conjunction with your veterinarian's recommendations). And it is less stressful with our portable, llama friendly restraint chute.
