Sick Little Alpacas

Folks seemed to enjoy these pictures of my Q-Tips so I thought I should add another. Actually, I'm worried about these two little guys today because they both have diarrhea and are just laying around. Their temperatures are a little high - 102.5 - which is high normal range. We gave them a dose of Pepto-Bismo (I don't know how to spell that) and put jackets on them. I don't know if they might have picked up something from the show last week or if they are stressing from shearing - or a combination of both. Will dose them again at noon and keep our eyes on them. Nobody else in the herd seems to have any symptoms but these two are separated from everyone else.
