Fleas or something??

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Dairygoats : One Thread

I think my goat might have fleas or something, she is less then two weeks old i think and she has little black things all over in her white fur, her body is pretty much covered in them and they werent there a week ago, she also scratchs a lot.

Have you caught any, or are they moving? Have you put 7dust or anything on her? If you use anything don't forget her bedding area.

There are some small bugs moving around but I've only seen like two otherwise the stuff that shes covered in doesnt seem to move at all, and she is covered in it! We havent tried anything yet because we dont know what it is whats safe to use on a goat that little.

We use 7dust on them (and anything else that moves)and in their bedding areas. We have not had any problems yet. A shot of Ivomec would work to, but I wouldn't give it to that young of goat. Good Luck
