I would give them a shot of Ivomec. And give the injection.

You can also use Livestock Dust or Python Dust or Sevin Dust.

I tried everything a few months ago the only thing that worked for me was the ivermectin cattle pour on. It worked great :)

Are you able to clip your goats to show them? I know a good body clip got rid of those buggers with no chemicals. :D

Ivermectin only works for one kind of lice. Equisect horse spray kills both. Scrub down to skin. :)

Prymethrin. It is super cheap. Dilute per directions and spray on liberally.

I would avoid injecting anything the week before a show. Also, it burns. Clipping for your show will also help. Good luck.
