Tips for newcomers to alpacas
Here is tip #1Saving money.
My vet told me to re-use the syringes when giving monthly shots. Once I finish giving one animal its monthly meningeal shot, I just take off the needle, put a new one on, and fill it up with the required amount. This works great, except once in a while I drop a needle, so in that case, I just put a new one on. A box of syringes lasts a long time that way, especially when you have 27 or more animals. Remember, always use a new needle when given the next animal its shot.
