Turning out to be not a great health year for me. I came home tonight, and as usual they were all waiting for me at the gate for dinner. My little mini alpaca Artie pushes his way through to get to the front and I see he has this thick white snot coming out of one nostril. The other appeared to have dried up. I went in to eat before it got cold and when I came out the snot was gone but he was all crusty around his nostrils. He acted fine, acted frisky, ate fine. Took his temp and it was 102.4, and it was mid 90s here all day. I cleaned out his nostrils and so far I have not seen anymore of the thick white stuff. I did read on back forums about sometimes something gets in their nostril(we got new hay on Wed)or they could have allergies This really just happened since I left in the morning, is it something I should start giving him antibiotics for, ride it out? Call the vet? I have never had an alpaca with snot. Everyone else appears at this point to be OK.
When our girl exhibited this we spent tons of money at the vets. Eventually he suggested that we take her to Ohio State and start all back over. My husband balked at the idea. I had someone email me to try Hylands Hayfever tablets. We started her on 2 a day and after 1 month we cut her down to 1 a day. That seemed to work. Good Luck
