This is the first time we have not to deal with munge. The animal in question at first appeared to just have a skin issue, we were using T-M-G; which can be purchased at Tractor Supply. At first he appeared to be getting better than last Sunday, June 21 considerable worse; gave Banamine and Excede shot. Started with Witches Brew on Monday, June 22nd. Running temperature from 103.4 up to 103.9. We have been providing Banamine daily and Excede every 5 days and Witches Brew on the areas every 3 day. If you can provide us with additional help would greatly appreciate it. He is still eating hay, pee good production; poop not as good but daily. Decided this morning not interested in his feed.

HI I live in the uk and farm alpacas, it does not sound like the mainge is the cause of the imfection or tempreture, unless the skin has got an infection in, in which case you need to give it anitibiotics. the mainge can be helped with products like pig oil which help soften the skin and ivermectin pour on, you need to add this at a rate of 20% mixed with the pig oil every other day for 10 days. once the scab has come off you then need to spray on a product like front line whe call it in the uk. hope this helps Derek at Hensting Alpacas
