Camelid Castration Clinic
March 15 - March 16
My name is Joel Foote and I am coordinating the Colorado State University Veterinary Teaching School camelid castration clinic in March. Dates have not been set yet and CSU needs at least 20 animals to hold the clinic. If there are more than 35, CSU will do a second day. So please help to spread the word.
The clinic is open to all alpaca and llama owners (no limit on the number of animals per 'customer') on a first-come, first-served basis. The cost is $45.00 for alpacas and $55 for llamas and includes nail and teeth trimming.
Gelding candidates must be in good health, halter-broke, reasonably well-behaved and at least 18 months old. Both testicles must be descended into the scrotum so even though the animal is 18 months if the testicles are not descended they cannot participate. Because this is a production clinic, genitourinary anomalies cannot be accommodated. NO exceptions. Please check your boys!
The animals will be anesthetized so please keep them off food for 12 hours before the appointment. An appointment schedule will be sent the week before the clinic.
A reminder will be sent in February and please contact me if you have any questions. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org, my cell phone is 303-748-2308, and the house phone is 303-465-1576. Please include the number of animals, their age, and your contact information (address, telephone, email, etc.)
