I have a doe that is 6 weeks bred. She has super sensitive skin. Whenever she gets injections she ends up with either swelling or abscesses at the injection site despite using fresh needles, new medicine bottles, etc.

Question is: she is showing signs of mites on her ears. She just started shaking her head and the tip of one ear has a rough spot. Is there something I can treat her with without having to do an injection? I’m trying to limit how many I have to give her to prevent the skin reactions.

Thank you!

There is a solution called VetRX, and it is 100% natural. There is one formulated for goats and sheep that you can get from Jeffers. I have not used it myself yet, but it has good reviews, so it might be worth a try. It is not an injection.
For the skin irritation, there is this other natural solution called Thyme Out. You can find it on Amazon or eBay. It is originally made for people, but I read that someone used it on their dogs and it worked. Plus, it’s natural, so I wouldn’t worry about using it on your goat. So, you can try those and see how it goes, good luck!

Vetrx should help..reapply a few times a day. Also For small area infestation you can use a heavy oil like olive oil and a drop of tea tree and rub on location ..again a few times a day.

Adding daily fresh raw garlic to her diet can help boost her immune system and in that fight against parasites
