Main Topic—The Normal Alpaca Birth

  1. The text we referred to for the details for this episode:
    1. Caring for Llamas and Alpacas: A Health & Management Guide
  1. Abnormal birth is another show, but here is a list of when to call the vet if you are new to this:
    1. Active labor goes on for more than 1-2 hours (NEVER overnight!)
    2. Something other than the front feet are presenting out of the vulva  (we once had a head only)
    3. The placenta doesn’t show up for 6 hours
    4. Mom or baby seems weak, sick, or otherwise “off”
    5. Baby’s temp dips below 100 degrees (normal is 100-102 degrees F).
