"I'm not clear on what goat(s) you're talking about, but I would only treat with one drug at a time in any case, and I would use things specifically labeled for goats or cows. If an animal is in milk, I'd only use things with a…"

"Deborah, I'm using Cylence on the other goats. What would be your plan of attack. The anti fungal did help her leg lesion dry up. It was a raw red spot, I assume from her biting at it."

"Since mites are in the skin, shaving and DE won't help. I don't recall if these goats are milking, but if you're giving ivermectin injectable, there is a crazy long milk withdrawal time of 2-3 months. Also, you shouldn't use…"

"That's what I don't get. I keep all the wet bedding picked up daily and completely clean the room every 3 days. After sweeping up the pellets I sprinkle lime over he dirt floor. I also sprinkled DE around the base of wall and on the wooden…"

"Completely clean out their bedding area and sprinkle lime all over liberally....if its a fungus the lime will kill it and disinfect the soil.  Use DE on their bodies ; it will kill any parasites that might be on them."

"He was itchy too for sure. I would try the NuStock. It works wonders but wear latex gloves or you will smell like sulphur for days. "

"Looks kinda similar, but mine are scratching like crazy. I have bathed with sulfedene, using 3 treatment injectable ivermectin presently, plus spot treatment with Cylence. I shaved her almost all the way as well. The only thing I've lacked is…"

"I'm dealing with a similar problem. But mine was scratching like crazy and rubbing on the barn wall. She lost hair on both legs and muzzle. Then I started seeing big pieces of dry skin flaking off. Her kids started scratching as well and I have…"

"You actually do NOT want to mix minerals with anything else. It's best to have mineral feeders on the wall and keep everything separate. The goats will take what they need of each one. I personally have four -- Sweetlix Meat Maker loose…"
