Lambivac?
« on: March 16, 2021, 08:24:40 pm »
Hi I am getting some Lambivac as advised for my goats. I understand it has a very short shelf life of 10 hours and I wondered if I should use it on my 2 alpacas as well?
Does anyone use it on alpacas and what would the dosage be as I am struggling to find advice online ?
Thanks in advance for your wisdom!

I think your vet may be the best advice, and isn't there an Alpaca veterinary society (there is for goats).

If Lambivac isn't licensed for Alpaca, you also couldn't legally use it without a vet prescription and if you do, and you record it in your drugs acquisition, administration and disposal holding register then it could get you into trouble if/when you get an inspection.


Alpacas are not classified as livestock - therefore (as far as I know) no DEFRA/APHA inspections.
