    Hello, I noticed my 12wk old doeling haa hair loss at the base of her ears. She otherwise has a beautiful coat and I do not see any bugs on her and she doesn't seem to scratch at them. It has been very hot the past three days and that's when I noticed it. None of my other goats have any hair loss anywhere. She is a boer/alpine cross. Any ideas? 1525466490074.jpeg 20180504_163832.jpg 20180504_163828.jpg 20180504_163825.jpg

    I have an older doe that has baldness in the same location! It's newish and I was blaming a hormonal loss due to recent kidding since there is no scabbing or crustiness like mites and no lice to be seen on her. I'll try to grab some photos tomorrow.

    Maybe try some Nu-stock on it and see if that helps.

    My doe was having this issue. MultiMin 90 with copper was a huge help.

    Thanks, me too, she looked pretty silly with bald ears. Thankfully she has a great coat otherwise.
