Caring for Llamas and Alpacas: A Health & Management Guide
by Claire Hoffman, Ingrid Asmus.

Published by Rocky Mountain Llama Association (U.S.A)

Available from www.amazon.com
and from 
The Rocky Mountain Llama Association
(see links below)

An excellent book with compact but comprehensive and thorough information for the lay person, although could do with updating (last published, we believe, in 1996). Covers nutrition, herd health, reproduction, calving, temperature taking etc. Certainly worth having.
A guide to raising llamas

Another good introduction to llamas: buying them, owning, managing and breeding...
Medicine and Surgery of South American Camelids
by Murray Fowler

Published by Iowa State University Press

Available from www.amazon.co.uk

Murray Fowler has completed many years of specialist veterinary experience and research working with llamas. This weighty tome is recommended to herd owners as a reference book and should be on the shelf of every vet who has llama-owning clients.  (2008 comment: although some of the content is now a little dated in that much more has been learned since this book was last revised).
Veterinary Clinics of North America
by LaRue Johnson.

Published by W. B Saunders

  Available from www.amazon.com
Two volumes of advanced veterinary papers highly recommended for experienced owners.
The complete Alpaca Book
by Eric Hoffman

Bonny Doon Press

An unfortunate title as this book has a lot of helpful information on llamas and much of the alpaca content is relevant for llamas too. Whilst Murray Fowler's book is aimed primarily at vets, this book is much more user-friendly for non-veterinary trained owners.
