I have a
question! My little female pigmy goat and lamancha wether keeps shaking their heads and rubbing their heads on the ground. I bought some home made ear mite oils from Fiasco Farms and have treated them a couple times and I don't think it's working. Maybe it isn't mites or maybe I didn't treat enough?? They don't have any missing hair around the ears or anything...but they constantly shake their heads and it makes me think they have mites. Can dog ear mite medication be used to treat goats? Thanks!
Other things I have done: dusted them with pymethrin.
I wondered about putting oil in the ears...will it clog their ears or create other infections? Doesn't seem right putting oil in ears of any living thing.
