Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats

for people who love the littlest dairy goats

Can anyone tell me the best thing for fleas on goats? My boy was scratching and I found a few on him. I looked it up, but have read many different things.

You're the first person I've ever heard say that your goat has fleas. The only person I've ever heard say they even got more than one tick was on the Gulf Coast. Your profile says you're in Indiana, so I'm wondering if you really saw fleas or if it was something else. Maybe lice? That's pretty common. Most parasites are species specific, but the vet textbooks say that it is possible for goats to get the fleas that infest cats. Still, I've never heard of anyone getting them, so I'd have to do some research on the solution. So, I figured I'd double-check on exactly what you saw.
