Parasite Control (Camelids)

Parasite Control

Camelids are particularly susceptible to internal parasites such as worms, coccidia and liver fluke. External parasites such as lice and mites can also pose a problem.

We can offer advice on the correct parasite control measures for your animals, and tailor a formalised plan if necessary. As there are no anti-parasitic medications currently licensed for use with camelids, we will often use medicines licensed for sheep or cattle. In many cases the doses for camelids are very different, so we advise that you get in contact with the practice before treating your animals.
