How often do you want to catch just one Alpaca to remove a bramble, inspect a limp or perhaps check an eye? Can you vaccinate, worm or trim feet on your own? No?
You need an Alpaca Easy Pen! (now also available for Llamas) The Alpaca Easy-Pen enables one person, without help, to easily catch and restrain/hold the Alpaca for treatments such as vaccinations, worming, foot trimming and weighing etc. The Alpaca is held securely in this small pen without stress and struggle and is therefore much more calm for the moment of treatment when it is easily held by the operator.
The Alpaca is then let out of the Easy-Pen on the opposite side of entry and so is separated from the remaining animals to be treated. Weighing is simplicity itself, place the platform scales in the pen, let the Alpaca in, give him/her a few seconds to settle, take the reading and let him/her out the opposite side. If it is not convenient to let him/her out the opposite side then he/she can be marked and let back into the group.
