Juvenile cataract and trauma

 Juvenile cataract
Trauma of the eye

Last week I went to see a young cria without an anus. Then he had another with a white lens... Juvenile cataract in an alpaca? When I came home one of the youngsters (few days old) had severe trauma on his eye. The first is not irreverseble. The second problem (trauma) looks more severe but will always recover beautiful. Maybe a little spot left in a few weeks.

  1. Hi Leo, we are currently treating a cria with an eye trauma which looks very similar to the one in your picture. We are giving her Nuflor every 3 days, 4 times so far and there is a definite improvement. How long does this take to completely recover, and should we continue with the antibiotics? She still cannot see out of the eye but apart from that she is very well and managing fine. I can always send you pictures .... my email
