As vets working in the South West of Wales, we are all too familiar with the impact of tuberculosis (TB). Camelids do unfortunately get a bad press, however we are passionate about the biosecurity and testing of camelids to minimise the risks of this disease. The testing of camelids is currently under negotiation. Many of our clients are using the Enferplex test as part of the voluntary TB Camelid Health Scheme, through SureFarm. In addition we can offer the skin test and alternative blood tests.
