It just keeps getting worse

Last week we had the sad task of putting Veronica to sleep. She was old and very frail , and she spent her last day outside in the sunshine with her friends , but eventually she just couldn't carry on  .

Today Aberlour is looking very similar. I put Veronicas fast decline down t old age and the weather , since the vets could find nothing wrong with her , but now I really am wondering . I've treated him for fluke and barber's pole , given vits and antibiotics , and now we just have to pray that this is enough and not too late .

This is a  short blog , 'cos I just cant bear any more !

So sorry Suzanne...we too have recently lost our oldest girl, the herd matriarch and it feels like losing a good friend. Keeping everything crossed that Arberlor pulls through. We all need a few sunny days.

After throwing everything at him - flukiver, antibiotics , iron , vits - Aberlour is looking perkier , he has just polished off a huge bowl of sugarbeet and is munching hay . Not standing yet , so tomorrow ( I hope ) we will have to lift him and make him use his legs a bit . Hoping he makes it through to tomorrow

Hoping that poor Arbelour pulls through. We too have lost an alpaca recently and know just how sad you must be feeling. xx
