Course Outline: Camelid Health Management

This is a 6 week online course in camelid health care for owners of alpacas and llamas. The aim of this course is to provide a solid grounding in the health management of camelids. It covers the crucial elements of managing alpacas and llamas as well as many common problems experienced. We will not deal specifically with any reproduction or neonatal problems in this course so it is therefore applicable to owners of breeding and non-breeding animals.

Taught by the UK’s only specialist camelid vet, you will be provided with the most up to date information to help you care for your animals. There will be ample opportunity for questions in this online course in camelid health. There is no such thing as a stupid question!

This course is suitable for beginners as well as more experienced owners wanting a refresher course in camelid health.
