An overview of selected diseases and drug needs in the llama and alpaca industries


An overview of selected diseases and drug needs in the llama and alpaca industries



Veterinary and Human Toxicology 40(Suppl 1): 29-34



ISSN/ISBN: 0145-6296

PMID: 9706687

The North American llama and alpaca industries will probably continue to expand at a rate of 20-25% per year for at least the next one to two decades. As a result, while the total population will always be small relative to the cattle and swine industries, the total numbers of alpacas and llamas will be substantial. Accordingly, it is appropriate and timely to begin the process of getting drugs approved for usage in these species. Four drugs that warrant consideration for NRSP-7 evaluation and approval are: Ivermectin for the prevention of P. tenuis infections. Chlorsulon for the treatment of Fasciola hepatica infections. Ceftiofur sodium for the treatment of various bacterial infections. Omeprazole for the management and prevention of third compartment ulcers.
