Dr. Ley began attending to the needs of llamas and alpacas in the northern Virginia area of Loudoun and Fauquier counties in 2006. His close proximity to breeders in this area is ideal in emergency situations. As a reproductive specialist, he is quite adept at assisting difficult births, and can perform Caesarean sections.
Much like the equine species, camelids are quite stoic, yet fragile at the same time. Quick response with fluids, temperature control, antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, and plasma are vital to any alpaca/llama in distress.
Dr. Ley is available to stabilize your camelid and help you make the best decision should it need more intense treatment at a major hospital. Twenty-four hour care is available with Dr. Ley if that is the best option for your animal.
