FeedingLuke is a baby alpaca. He is five days old. The first day, we thought he was eating but he wasn’t.

On Saturday he looked sick, so the neighbors took him to the vets. They said it looked funny because everyone brought in their dogs and their cats, and put them on their laps. The neighbors came in, holding an alpaca and put him on their lap!

The vet said that Luke wasn’t eating and might have something called “dumb foal”. I don’t understand what that means, but we plan to research it and learn what it is.

So right now, we are bottle feeding him.  We are trying to have him nurse from his momma too.  He is not exactly acting like other newborn alpacas, but he is acting a lot better than he did.






P.S  Luke started to have more seizures and got really sick.  He went to the vets but did not come home.
