TB Awareness Roadshow 2010.

Cases of TB in alpacas and other camelids have been on the rise in recent years, and especially last year. It is hard for us to put a figure on the exact numbers, but around 200 alpacas have been through the VLA with symptoms consistent with TB in 2009.

Herds affected are often loath to come forward to share their problem and seek help. The fact that we don't know exactly what we have got in terms of the number of animals and herds infected, makes it even more important to raise awareness of the disease. If the disease is as serious as many owners and the leading camelid vets believe, then urgent action is needed.
To this end the BAS has put together a series of TB Awareness Meetings around the UK, open to all camelid owners and anyone interested in helping fight TB. Renowned camelid Vet, Gina Bromage, will make the presentation, and answer any questions on TB that the audience may have. Her talk will cover the disease itself, what to look out for, current and future testing developments, and practical preventative measures that you can take. The process that takes place once TB is diagnosed in a camelid herd will also be discussed.

There are fourteen venues around the country, so there should be a meeting within striking distance of all camelid owners it is in their own interests and it is vital that they attend.

Chairman BAS
