Faenris Camelids are more efficient than ruminants in extracting protein and energy from poor quality forages. Poor weight gain and an illthrifty appearance are other findings. Signs are similar to those occurring with EEE including inappetence, fever, lethargy, ataxia, stiff gaits, seizures, recumbency, torticollis or opisthotonus, and vestibular signs. Zinc responsive dermatosis is is characterised by thickening of skin with adherent crusts on non-haired areas of the body, alpacae. The two types are defined by their different fleece characteristics. Suris are the second, less common, alpaca type.
