Medical & Health

Baraka x-ray1An important part of right care for captive camels is the medical side of things. Sooner or later you will most likely need to call a vet to check on your camel. It’s a good idea to determine ahead of time which vet in your area is willing to work with camels.

Camels are generally hardy, but like everything else, they can fall sick or get injured.Peace4

To have the camel handle-able by you and the vet is a huge plus when the time for vet care is needed.

Things we’ve encountered among our camels and can unofficially offer advise on are:

  • Boils and abscesses
  • Bot flies
  • Broken toe
  • Broken teeth
  • Eye-ball scratches
  • Flesh wounds and scrapes
  • Burns
  • Broken chest-pad, and elbow pads
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Breach birth
  • Prolapse Uterus
  • Scours
  • Torn mouths
  • Tendon Laxity
  • Parasites
  • Shutdown Rumen
  • Mineral imbalances
  • Castrations
  • Euthanasia
  • Burial

In addition to allopathic medicine we’ve also effectively employed acupuncture, chinese medicine, prolozone and prolotherapy, cold laser and hot laser therapy, homeopathy, herbs, essential oils, nutritionals, bowen therapy, massage, contact care, organic minerals, shamanism, prayer and intention…. be willing to try new things, intelligently and carefully.
