Overview

The finest of the few books on medical care of South American camelids-and the only comprehensive account of the subject-this volume appears here in a new edition expanded to include new topics and some reference to Old World camels, along with llamas, alpacas, vicunas, and guanacos. Here, in updated and augmented form, is the premier text on South American camelids, covering biology, nutrition, management, care and handling, diseases, neonatal care and development, toxicology, congenital and hereditary conditions, and pertinent information about various body systems. It also contains basic information about anatomy and physiology and relates that information to more complex systems and clinical procedures.

Revised by the original author, a recognised expert in the field, this edition includes additional material on nutrition and forage grasses.

As South American camelids become ever more common in zoos, farms, and fields, and the problems of their health and maintenance become ever more pressing, this book will prove an essential tool for veterinary and zoo practitioners and researchers. Owners and breeders may also find it useful.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for the First Edition

“A historically significant, worthy contribution to the veterinary literature. Any clinician who anticipates practice with South American camelids would benefit from having this book in his or her library.” -- Charles J. Sedgwick, Journal of the American Veterinary Medicine Association

“Not just for llama veterinarians but also for the practitioner and zoo veterinarian, tne book offers valuable advice as to the treatment of these unique animals and will be indispensable for anyone involved in South American camelid medicine.” – A Rubel Zurich, Switzerland, Journal of Veterinary Medicine, Series A

“For veterinarians in English-speaking countries these camelids have posed a major problem, as the limited literature on these animals has been largely published in Spanish. … Murray Fowler has bridged this gap magnificently – T. J. Bergin, Australian Veterinary Journal

“Truly a labor of love. There is no comparable book available today.” – LaRue W. Johnson, DVM, PhD, College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, Colorado State University

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Deborah D. Rowley, DVM (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This is a second edition, updated version of a book that summarizes all aspects of management of the South American camelid.
Purpose: The purpose of this second edition is to update the original 1,000 references with an additional 1,300 references. Additionally, clinical experiences and research have added to the demand for a second edition. Two new chapters have been added which focus on conformation and disaster management of the South American camelid. The updated version of this text is due, and the objectives of the author are met.
Audience: This text is written for the large animal clinical practitioner as well as the training veterinary student. The author is Professor Emeritus of Zoological Medicine at the University of California, Davis. For this edition, the author has invited Dr. P. Walter Bravo to contribute in the chapter on reproduction. Both authors are respected authorities in their fields.
Features: Evolution, biology, restraint, nutrition, animal husbandry, clinical examination, procedures, medical and surgical management, anesthesia, reproduction, and emergency management of the camelid is updated in this second edition. It organizes information regarding specific conditions of the camelid into readable tables and provides good use of illustrations. Photographs, diagrams, and tables are black and white. Though well referenced and well illustrated, it does not contain a glossary or an appendix.
Assessment: This is likely the most up-to-date and comprehensive collection of information specific to the management of South American camelids. Given the large population of llamas and alpacas currently in private ownership, veterinarians are able to use this text as a reference for staying current with the updated knowledge base that has become available since the release of the first edition.
