The article describes a case of a three-day-old alpaca cria with multiple congenital abnormalities. It notes that the animal was presented for evaluation and management of a ventrocaudal abdominal swelling. It cites that a ruptured right-sided inguinal hernia was confirmed by further examination and palpation. According to the author, owners may avoid financial losses by determining concurrent congenital anomalies in similar animals.
