    Question Llamas: Pros and Cons?

    How sad! We have a Mini Dachshund and I have plans to start breeding them but they will have their own space and the two hopefully won't interact. What a great warning though! Thank you!

    I would have to say that, i.e. Go to your trusty vet (definitely at the professional level) but also dosage needs to be right for the birds to avoid side effects.
