Okay, I'll continue him with antibiotics anyway. I'll see if the vet has any recommendations. In the meantime, we get to pick him up today. And bring another sick animal to the vet. Yay on that. It's been really expensive animal month. I've probably blown $1000 that I don't have on critters. Thankfully there are payment plans.That is wonderful that he is ok. I would do the full course of antibiotics to make sure it all stays away. With what vets charge around here, $200 isn't a bad price. I would have definitely paid that.
Llamas can live to be around 20. The issue with llamas is that they are extremely stoic and a lot of the time, once they show symptoms, it's too late to do anything.Glad to hear that Sid is doing better. I don't know how long llamas live, but if he has been healthy and active up to this point I would expect a longer slow down time if it was just caused by age. Glad you found out it was some sort of infection and he is on the mend.
