Small ruminants are very popular pets and companion animals. Owners commonly seek high quality individual medicine and surgery for these pets just as they would for their other companion animals. These owners are found everywhere, though in my experience most often encountered on “hobby farms” in peri-urban areas. These owners may come from a livestock back ground, though more commonly they have little experience. They commonly are starving for an eager veterinarian to help them learn and provide them with advice. We will focus on high quality individual animal medicine and surgery for sheep, goats, and South American camelids. I hope to build the confidence of the veterinarians that may be hesitant to see the family pet alpaca, and also to exchange some tips with the seasoned show sheep veterinarians. Integrating individual animal small ruminant medicine can be very rewarding to your practice. We will cover a wide range of topics including sedation, urolithiasis, gastrointestinal parasites and dystocia including caesarean section success tips.
