Hi Everyone,
I just picked up my new ND buck to add to my herd. He is really nice, but does have lice. He is quarantined from my herd until I can get that under control. I have used UltraBoss in the past, but it did not seem to work well. And I dont know if it is because ND are so small that the doseage is such a small amount that I cannot even run it along their whole back.
I have also used Atraban successfully
But that requires soaking his coat and it has been below freezing and today and tomorrow it is pouring rain. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to treat him?
I know he has no health issues aside from that since I am very familiar with and trust the farm he came from. The cutie is pictured below.

I like to use CyLence, because my goats somehow ALWAYS have lice by the end of winter. I like that it's safe to use on lactating does (not that that matters for your buck!) and I've used it on ND kids as young as 3 days old.

I have been really happy with the CyLence as well.

Is the pour on Ivermectrin ok for bred and lactating does? I am heading to TSC in a little bit anyways. ;-)
I believe so but do check with the others.

I recommend pour on ivermectin over other treatments.

Although natural treatments work too, you just gotta find the right one. The only one that has seemed to work for me is VetRX. You apply it the same way as you do ivermectin.
