Camelid Services

The Cornell University Hospital for Animals offers state-of-the-art patient care in a resourceful setting for llamas, alpacas, and camels through our Camelid Services. Board-certified specialists, dedicated residents, licensed veterinarian technicians, and our supervised students work together to provide the best available emergency care, diagnostic procedures, treatment, and hospitalization. Our facilities are welcoming to camelids allowing for their gregarious herd needs with features such as large and well-ventilated stalls, safe and comfortable flooring and bedding, and specialized equipment for support and delivery of intensive care. In addition, an efficient biosecurity program has been in place to prevent hospital infections, including a designated facility for hospitalization of patients with contagious diseases.

*We offer routine and specialized health care including internal medicine, orthopedic surgery, soft tissue surgery, ophthalmology, dentistry, reproduction, cardiology, dermatology, and nutrition. We are open around-the-clock for emergency and critical care cases, including neonatal intensive care and high-risk pregnancies. Our services are supported by up-to-date diagnostic procedures, including body ultrasound, and high resolution radiography, CT scan and MRI techniques.

*For more information on these services please read about them under the Equine or Farm Animal Hospital’s service listing.
