    If they have never had a CDT shot before, then a booster in a month.

    One plan recommends vaccination of adults once a year; pregnant females 4-6 weeks before to parturition; crias at 3-4 months old and again 4 weeks later then yearly thereafter.

    A second plan is based on vaccinating adults once a year; breeding females when they are open; and crias at 2-3 days old, again at 2-3 weeks old, and yearly after that. Other protocols can be used and tailored to suit individual farm situations.

    I realize this thread is a year old, but wanted to say thank you to both the person who started it and those who answered. I had 2 questions I was looking up on line-can my alpaca have cdt and if so how much-I should have known to come right to backyard herds for answers but haven't been here in so long! Best site(and members!) every! :D
