Okay, well, that was until today. We found Juno in the shed and he was shaking and weak. He could stand but was wobbley. He ate and was fine this morning and at the noon check of the barnyard and pasture. We got him in under a heat lamp and called the vet. The way Juno was acting the vet thinks he got something caught in his throat. He was making a hacking, rattle sound at the time. Combine that with him not getting out in the sun he lost heat and got cold. Add in the dampness of the rain yesterday and the weather flip flopping back around and you have one hard time for all the animals not just Juno. Alpaca keep warm by digesting food but if he isn't getting out and grazing all day he won't have the food to digest at night to keep warm. Doc had me give him some Pepto just incase he had a tummy ache and Then He had me drench him with vitamins and electrolytes.
After that he said to give him plenty of water and keep him warm. So what are we going to do??? Well, we did everything Doc said and then we did what we do best ... Use that inside pen! Yup, Juno won't be fighting the cold tonight. He will be bedding down in the warm and tomorrow it is suppose to be up to 80 degrees so he will be going out to soak up the sun and from there on out he should be going good ... If not we will be making a run to the Vet in the morning.
