Momma and Dad here, with a note about noses. Our Tuscany aka Tuscaninny, has an immune system that’s not quite right. Because of this, he has been unable to get rid of a runny nose. Dr. Balch gave us a prescription, but until it comes in, we have to improvise. We first started using Tri Care first aid cream on our horses, but it works well on our Alpacas too.
The process involves catching him, holding him and then creaming up his muzzle. This is not as easy as it sounds. It’s always a two man project, but if you want pictures it’s a threesome, not including the alpaca.
There’s always a reward for good behavior. A scoop full of Alpaca chews helps the medicine stay on!
Awesome pictures (and caption). Sometimes I’m glad I don’t have to do the day-to-day work around the ranch. It looks hard!
Could it be an allergy? Do hope the medicine works.
Poor Tuscaninny! Hope the medicine comes soon!
