Back in 2016 in preparation for my university degree I underwent a day of training with the Alaigne Alpacas.
Here I learnt how to handle and catch an alpaca, as well as assess behaviour and health check. These are very important before handling an alpaca for physiotherapy.
As you can see from the pictures it was a very practical day, and I loved getting taught all about alpacas!
Since, I have learnt that alpacas also can develop issues which can be helped with the use of veterinary physiotherapy. The following are examples of what alpacas can develop:
- Bone fractures
- Neurological issues
- Tendon and Ligament Injury
- Wound injuries
- and many more...
