Hi, my name is Leslie and I'm new to the site. I have 3 wethers (triplet brothers all arrived together in June 2020) just about to turn one year old. I have my first question regarding significant…Continue

"Thanks Tammy, that makes me feel better. We were getting some pretty good hay over the winter because it seems to be when I was finally getting the second or maybe even third cut for a short time...first cut seems to last an eternity here. The last…"

"Hi again ladies!  I just came to post a question about minerals and I saw it fits in nicely to what Tammy was just saying about knowing what they need for minerals in this thread. I switched last month from Manna Pro to Sweetlix and I think my…"

"He didn’t mention it but Ted doesn’t have much in the way of any scabs or patches now, and itching is much better though not yet 100%. Vet is due for a visit here in a month so at least if it isn’t resolved by then they will get a…"

Tammy Gallagher replied to Leslie Carion's discussion Intro and itchy/mites question
"Thanks for the update! Did he offer to do a skin scrape for you to check for mites? It can be hit or miss on the scrapes because sometimes they are really down deep. If Ted has any scabby or scaly areas still around after another week or so, you may…"

"Hi Tammy, Just wanted to update you that I finally connected with the vet - he was in agreement with everything done so far and thinks the ivermectin pour on should have done away with any lice. As for mites, which is still my suspicion, he said I…"

Tammy Gallagher replied to Leslie Carion's discussion Intro and itchy/mites question
"I would not repeat this soon. Give it a little more time to work. I looked all over for an answer on how long to expect before it kills lice, even when applied to cattle, and could not find an answer. There is nothing that I could locate on the…"

Tammy Gallagher replied to Leslie Carion's discussion Intro and itchy/mites question
"Your Welcome! Please keep us posted and I am interested in what your vet recommends about treatment and opinion about what is going on with them. I've never used a dip and would really like the feedback on your experience if you choose that."

Ann Bodling replied to Leslie Carion's discussion Intro and itchy/mites question
"Hi Tammy,  should I have expected the Ivermectin to be effective at relieving their itching 2 days after it was given?  They are all still itching and some seem worse. A couple of them are biting just above their feet, but I'm not…"

"Thanks Tammy! These guys are pets for life but I will go ahead and see what the vet has to say anyway. I'm going to try to be patient also :) Thanks so much for the support on this forum, I really appreciate it!"

Tammy Gallagher replied to Leslie Carion's discussion Intro and itchy/mites question
"Hey Leslie- sorry for the delayed response. It was tattoo day for all of our kids and it took much longer than we expected! Eprinex and Ivomec Pour On are both avermectins (macrocylic lactone class) so the mechanism of action that kills the mite is…"

"Thanks so much for the replies Tammy. I totally agree on the Itch Protector, I definitely felt it was more of a symptom masker than treatment given the cleaning away claim. I does say it has diatomaceous earth in the label ingredients, but it dries…"

Tammy Gallagher replied to Leslie Carion's discussion Intro and itchy/mites question
"Hi Leslie- glad your guys are feeling better. Deborah has way more experience than I do using essential oils, but reading the description of the product, I would say it is not really going to have an 'insecticide' type action. It says it…"

Ann Bodling replied to Leslie Carion's discussion Intro and itchy/mites question
"Thanks, Tammy.  They were banded a few days before we picked them up but don't seem to be trying to reach that area now. They are using their feet and mouths like a dog would to scratch their legs and sides mostly. I'll keep an eye on…"

Tammy Gallagher replied to Leslie Carion's discussion Intro and itchy/mites question
"Do you know if the breeder gave them anything right before you brought them home? I would ask just in case something was applied that was irritating to the skin in general. I know when I treated my kids for lice with the Ivermectin Pour On, several…"

Tammy Gallagher replied to Leslie Carion's discussion Intro and itchy/mites question
"Leslie- you may want to try brushing them out now that the ivermectin has had a chance to do it's thing. My boys had so much dry flaky skin that was trapped in their winter coat. They just looked awful. I used an undercoat rake for dogs and it…"

Tammy Gallagher replied to Leslie Carion's discussion Intro and itchy/mites question
"I checked with Deborah and she said that she has heard vets recommend the sulfur dust, but doesn't actually have use experience to share with us, so that would be something to check with your vet on if interested in using it."
