could anyone post this on their Facebook, or whatever they have for media. It is for Lucy (my beagle) She is totally blind from cataracts in both eyes. She can get surgery, but, it cost $1000.00 per eye. Even if I got one eye done, it is better than nothing at all.

Llamas don't 'show' when they are pregnant. To figure it out, the vet will need to do a blood test...

If you have a male llama, you can harness the female and the male, if the female is pregnant she will become agitated around the male and spit him away.

It's not a clear answer, but it's one way of getting some sort of idea.

Llamas are induced ovulators which means they can get pregnant at anytime!

Best way is a transrectal ultrasound by the vet (good luck finding one).

Second best way, is to see if she "spits him off," like she said.
