Winter Warmers # 2 – Parasitology

The Eastern Alpaca Group invites you to the second of three presentations this winter starting on Saturday 9th January 2021 @ 7pm. We hope you will tune in and join us with these short presentations which are open to non-members as well as EAG members

Parasitology: Presented by Ami Sawran

Join us for a Zoom webinar to learn about protecting your alpacas from harm from parasites. A presentation followed by a Q & A session. This talk will give an overview of the threats that parasites pose to your herd. We will discuss clinical signs to alert you to a potential burden, and shed light on your options for diagnosis, treatment and control of parasites. We will touch on both internal and external parasites and hope to highlight the importance of vigilance and diagnostic testing in your alpacas.

Waiting room open from 6.50pm 

£24 for EAG members. £30 for non members

Dr Ami Sawran will be well known to EAG members as a local vet who has a special interest in Alpacas. She presented a birthing workshop for us last March and proved herself to be an engaging speaker over Zoom when presenting in September on “Top reasons for vet calls over the winter months”. Ami qualified from Liverpool University in 2011, after which she completed an internship in production animal health at the Royal Veterinary College, where she also studied for her PhD. She is currently clinical director of Westpoint Farm Vets in Chelmsford. Ami is very enthusiastic about camelid medicine, and is working towards her advanced certificate in camelid practice. She also heads the Westpoint Small Ruminant and Camelid Group, and the Camelid Special Interest Group for VetPartners, where she also sits on the Production Animal Clinical Board.
