My buck Phantom has come down with some sort of major hair loss. His hair is thinning on the backs of his back legs and on his sides and stomach. But, his brother Cullen looks fantastic. His coat looks better than it's looked in a long time. They are both housed in the same pasture and sleep right next to each other so is it unlikely that what Phantom is dealing with to be mites?
I am fully aware of how tough it is to figure out skin and coat problems. I'll probably start with zinc for Phantom and go from there. I'm suspicious it's not that though, because I've seen that before and this doesn't quite look like that. I'm thinking I'll do NuStock too.
i had one doe get mites and i didnt know i thought she was losing fur reaching over the top of a hay feeder (because apparently getting the hay right in front is not good enough LOL)
only the one out of 4 goats at the time had the mites. I treated all of them with permethrin and then sprinkled seven dust in the stalls. one treatment and all gone, the fur is growing back now.
