Abstract

Hyperthermia is a threat to heavily fibered llamas and alpacas in hot humid climates. Hyperthermia produces severe metabolic alterations that cause organ damage that may be nonresponsive to simply lowering the body temperature to within normal limits. Early detection and aggressive therapy are crucial to preventing death or permanent organ damage.
