Vitamin D Time!

Found in: BlogLatest News / Nutrition

The winter solstice has gone and July is here! It is time to treat your camelids with vitamin D again to ensure appropriate calcium and phosphorus regulation and bone growth (first treatment of the year should have been given in May). Treat at least every animal born in 2013, 2014 and 2015, or if in doubt, treat the entire herd. Each animal should receive 2000 iu vitamin D per kg bodyweight, injected either under the skin or into the muscle. Read the bottle label carefully and weigh your animals to ensure accurate dosage.
