  • Unpacking an alpaca

    Posted on by Andy

    This time of year we are commonly called to unpack many an alpaca. In the following video one of our vets assists a soon to be mother having problems delivering her baby cria. One forelimb was pointing in the wrong direction because the knee was flexed (carpal flexion). Once this was corrected the baby cria was successfully delivered alive.
