Hi i have had two 5 year old Saanen goats since October last year both brothers and one this winter completley lost his coat in great clumps until he was very bald all over, so much so he was pink and we had to put a horse excercise sheet on him as he was shaking with the cold so much, i wormed/liced him with Eprinex @ 1ml/10kg body weight and eventually his coat grew back beautifully and very smooth compared to the more rough curly coat it was before and now his brother is having same thing happening to him!! Any thoughts anyone, he was wormed/liced with same product only couple months ago even though vet recommend every 3 months, i have done him yesterday but am wondering if the product itself is upsetting them? Other goats are fine.:confused:
