What do I need in my cria kit?

posted in: Alpaca FAQ | 0

In my first year, mostly out of nervousness, I assembled quite a large and complete cria kit which included everything you could possibly buy! But over the years, I realized I only really used a handful of items.

So here’s a shortened MUST-HAVE list:

  • Towels and/or hair dryer
  • Iodine/umbilical cord dip and small plastic cup for dipping
  • Trash bag for placenta
  • Thermometer/lube
  • Frozen cow colostrum/kitten bottle (just in case)
  • Cria coat in colder seasons
  • Tel number to your vet
