About this course
Would you like to enhance your confidence in dealing with alpacas?

Alpaca numbers are continuing to increase in the UK, both as pets and in larger commercial enterprises. Owner expectations are increasing as more is known about these animals and appropriate methods of diagnosis and treatment are becoming more available.

This webinar aims to help clinicians develop a logical approach to working up common case presentations in alpacas and determine an appropriate therapeutic plan and forward prevention strategy both for the individual animal and the herd.

Why do this course?
To ensure you have current up to date knowledge on alpacas and current common conditions seen in the UK and feel confident to determine appropriate diagnostic testing at an individual and herd level and implement treatment and prevention plans.
