    Hi guys....been awhile but everyone has been doing good. Peaches is almost as big as her momma now and her little brother Lorenzo is growing leaps and bounfs and is such a love. I was given 3 alpaca from a friend after her husband died. One female..2 boys. After a month of Quarantine etc...the female went with the girls...the boys went over with the boys. All has been goof until last month...I noticed the new female with a water eye and figuired she injured it. I started her on Vertrcyian eye gel. It got worse and after talking to vet found out is was pinkeye. I treated with LA 200 and it cleared it up fast but damage was already done to the eye. Now my male llama who has never been around the female but is with the boys has a watery eye...I've syarted him on the LA200. Is thete a vaccine I can give the others to prevent it?
    Thank you
