    We noticed this a couple of days ago. Today we cleaned it with warm water and put antibiotic cream on it. Any thoughts on what it is or what we should do? IMG_5866.jpg
    Thanks!

    Mites.

    Injectable Ivomec 1cc per 40lbs or pour in ivermectin 1cc per 20lbs down the topline. A little bit of olive oil and take the scabby area off. NuStock ointment on afterwards.

    Good advice, but it is pour on, instead of pour in.

    I'd do the injectable ivermectin as mentioned however, I wouldn't put nustock that close to an eye. Neosporin or polysporin will work without irritating the eye itself.

    NuStock when applied very thin and not globbed in and rubbed into the skin works fine around the eyes.

    Thanks everyone. I used neosporin because she was hard to stay still and I was worried about the nustock too. I would rather use nustock though. Hopefully I can when she gets used to me messing with it.
