Hey everyone I've been MIA for a few days, not posting much at all this month, feels so strange to be spending less time on the computer! I am beyond backlogged LOL
I am wondering something... I know that I've read everywhere that people don't get lice from goats - species specific.
However, My oldest daughter has gotten lice a few times since we got goats, NEVER before that.
We treated for lice last month, but hubby never did the 2nd treatment!
I noticed the goats were scratching a little too much the other day, then Thanksgiving night I was brushing my oldest daughters hair and found she has lice again
I thought it was dandriff, because she has it right now.
I treated my daughter yesterday.
Went out to do feet and a final 'dip' of permectrin II on the goats before cold weather sets in, and they had lice too. The buck seemed to have it the worst on his neck, the girls didn't seem to have much.
Can people REALLY get lice from goats?
I just don't know....I wonder if she must be getting it from the school, or could she really be getting it from the goats? She's the only one who got it.
It's frustrating....I think to play it safe I'll go ahead and contact the school this time and see if maybe they can get some of the kids checked for lice, because I am so tired of dealing with this.
