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
