A review of helminth infections in alpacas

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This paper will present a review on helminth infection in South American Camelids. Domesticated alpacas and llamas can be infected with a range of nematodes, cestodes and flukes; however, their susceptibility to these worms is variable. Currently, no dewormer is registered for its use in alpacas and anthelmintic resistance in gastrointestinal nematodes of alpacas has been reported from Australia and other parts of the world.
