Dental problems are common in alpacas and can cause pain, suffering and, if left untreated, death. As an alpaca owner or carer, you are responsible for the long-term health of your herd and you can play an important role in detecting animals in your care that might be suffering from dental issues.
‘Alpaca Teeth: The Owner’s Guide to Alpaca Dental Health and Wellbeing’ will take you on a guided tour of the mouth of the alpaca, demonstrating the role that the mouth and teeth play as the first part of the digestive process. You will learn about normal dentition, what can go wrong in the mouth and, most importantly, how you can identify animals in your care that may be suffering from a dental problem.
Written in everyday language and fully illustrated with over 100 photographs and diagrams, ‘Alpaca Teeth: The Owner’s Guide to Alpaca Dental Health and Wellbeing’ will complete your alpaca husbandry reference library, and is an invaluable practical resource to have on-hand when checking the health of your alpacas.
