Photos would help. Do you have a lot of flies and gnats right now? They make my goats quite itchy all around and sometimes they pull their hair out from itching and biting so frequently.

As much as I hate to say this, when there are any marks around the spine, meningeal worm is always something to watch for. Is there any hind leg weakness, maybe a limp?
Yes hind leg weakness. This is my Boer/Alpine goat. She is having these awful flies biting her and I did notice a spot that looks like her hair is thinning. I bought SWAT (recommended by my vet) yesterday but just read the whole instructions and don't want to use it. What should I look for as far as meningeal worm symptoms? What do you use for these horrible flies? I have sprayed essential oil but not doing much. I'm very worried. Thanks
