    A couple of days ago, one of our Saanen does started getting these spots. They're generally round in shape with a red ring like look. I serched the Internet to no avail. Can anybody help me identify what's going on here? The vet isn't available until later in the week. Thanks

    I have a doe and some others that have really dry skin. I’ve really noticed it with her tho. I brushed her with a flea comb to check for lice/mite and i did find a few so i’ve treated the whole herd. When i did brush her clumps and clumps of hair came off and scaly skin. Some of my other does...

    If you’ve seen my other post, you know that i’ve just recently starting milking one of my does. Now that I’m able to get a closer inspection, I’ve noticed that most if not all my goats have dry skin. I’ve noticed them itching quite a bit. I have seen any more tho. I live in Texas so the weather...

    I have goat that potentially had mites. He went to the vet and was treated. It got better but then it got worse again VERY fast. I’m waiting for a call back from the vet for both issues. Also, my goats have been losing a lot of hair (their legs are okay) I thought it was shedding until today...

    Hello! I'm fairly new to owning goats, have had them for about a year and a few months now. So, my little one who is a Kiko, she appears to have a lot of flakey skin and has small patches of fur specifically coming off her head, not really anywhere else... I'm not sure what to think of it...

    Hey there! I’m fairly new to goats and so far have been lucky with no issues with my triplets(alpine/toggenburgs now almost a year!) We added a Nigerian Pygmy about 2 months ago and she gets picked on badly by the 3 bigger guys. Is there no way to get them to ‘accept her’? She also has a skin...

    Hi everyone, in the last couple of days i noticed this spot on our beautiful "Chance" we are a long way from anywhere and I am not experienced enough to know is this panic stations or quite a normalish thing for white pigmented goats, any advice or experience would be greatly appreciated, thank you

    I suspected ringworm in two of my does and as I shaved them it got worse and worse and now I don't know what it is. I'm treating with iodine.

    hi, I am kinda new to goats. I used to show when I was younger but didnt learn a ton about illnesses. I rescued 4 goats from a friend who knew nothing about them (she had them 2 years never trimmed feet, if this gives you an idea). I have had them about 3 months and have had to rehabilitate them...

    I have a two month old baby boy and girl who are both losing hair down their topline. It isn't exactly bald spots. The hair is very short but still there. most of it is where they can't reach so its not from them biting it. I treated my entire herd with Cylence but the boy has continued to get...

    This showed up on my 5 month old alpaca cria about 2 weeks ago and has steadily gotten worse. I'm going to be taking him to the vet some time this week, but I wanted to see if anybody on here knew what this is. His skin feels like it's thickened and is almost bumpy. I don't know if it's a...

    I don't know how we keep having so many issues with our alpacas. Calamity Jane has been pretty healthy up until recently. We noticed that she has some hair loss on her nose, ears, and in her "armpit" regions. We figured this may be due to flies, but I noticed last week that she had sores on her...

    Hey all, Was just out trimming hooves (well, supervising anyway) and as I was looking over one of my boys, I noticed that his skin on his face and at the base of his horns has grown thick and flaky. I figured it was just dry skin, but it's definitely getting thicker. Is this something I should...
