The latter two diseases, entertooxemia disease and blackleg are not known to occur in alpacas, although blackleg has been produced experimentally. Usually, a break in healthy epithelium or devitalised tissue is required to provide a portal for entry.

Clinical disease is said to be more common when animals are immune-suppressed, stressed, debilitated or have other infections, e. Bovicola breviceps is a chewing louse. Chronic forms, more commonly seen in adults, are essentially abscesses or focal enyerotoxemia. Alpacas may be paralysed by this tick, which is endemic along the east coast of Australia.

Al;acas underlying skin is erythematous, with erosions and exudate. An 8-in-1 vaccine is available in Australia, which includes protection against C. Measurement of blood glutathione peroxidase GSHPx is the most cost effective way of checking selenium status.

The most effective treatments are grazing in shaded paddocks, increasing time indoors or covering affected areas with a zinc oxide or titanium dioxide based sun block. It is common practice for alpaca owners in Enterotoxemla to vaccinate alpacas with 5-in-1 vaccine every 6 months. If a pregnant alpaca is exposed to the virus during the first trimester of pregnancy the fetus may become persistently infected.

Enterotoxemia Overeating Disease of Sheep and Goats — 8. Enterotoxemi signs include head tremor and swaying. Alpacas are induced ovulators, they ovulate about 26 hours after mating. Animals show a range enterotocemia clinical signs which may include nervous signs such as depression, weakness, stumbling, head pressing possibly due to hepatic encephalopathy, hyperammonaemiaweight loss, recumbency and death. Certain individuals are affected much worse than others, a hypersensitivity reaction is suspected.

Some camelids on grain diets have gastric pH around 5. During the outbreak in horses, a number of alpacas with neurological signs were tested, but were serologically negative.

Growing babies are typically vaccinated for the first time at six to 10 weeks of age, and one to two repeat booster vaccinations are typically given afterwards.

Clinical signs may include chronic weight loss, depression, decreased fertility, lethargy and rarely, death. Pneumonia appears to be relatively uncommon in alpacas in Australia.
