Paralysis + B Vitamin Problems

Here is one I learned the hard way. Always keep some B-complex on hand, and do NOT keep it in the refrigerator.  B-complex should be kept at room temperature, or it will be ruined.

Last year I had an alpaca go down.  We could find nothing wrong with her.  After a quick call to Steve Hull, he suggested we give her a shot of B-complex.  (The amount does vary depending on the B-complex.)  Amazingly within a short time she was up, and acting much better.  We continued giving her the B-complex shots, as instructed by Steve.  I really believe this saved her life.

 The issue was caused by a fungus that is prevalent certain times of the year.  It inhibits the absorption of B vitamins.
