Advice - alpaca baby freexing

Calgary, AB(Zone 3a)

"we need some urgent help in trying to save a half frozen alpaca
baby.we have her in the kitchen on warm blankets and a couple of heating pads is
there anything else we can be doing?"

This post is from an acquaintance on another website. Any advice for her?

Warm fluids. Maybe even tube her with some warm sugar water.
Watch out the heating pads don't burn her, if she's cold enough to have decreased circulation.

Thank you! After I posted this I realized there was a livestock forum and also posted there and got some more advice and links some of which are probably not so far from where this person lives
No further updates yet.

Thanks again!
