Liver Fluke

Post  Carm221 on Tue Jan 05, 2010 8:43 am

Before Christmas I lost 3 of my 2009's crias due to Liver Fluke. I had never heard of Liver Fluke before & suddenly i am losing babies & have 5 very sick adults! I have now treated all of my flock for Fluke and every other parasite known to man.
My Vet informed me that last Summer was perfect conditions for the explosion of the Liver Fluke snail as it was a damp warm Summer. The snail infects the liver & then any time after 8 weeks (even up to a year) later the llama sarts to show symptoms. It can be sudden death syndrome or rapid loss of condition leading to death.
Has any one else had any problems?
