    how do you tell the difference? My goats have some kind of parasite bug on their skin. their flat and reddish color and there also yellow yellow eggs with red heads on them. i gave them some ivermectin, but how do i get rid of these?? :sigh:

    Sounds like lice (we just had them). I used ivomectin internally and diamaceaous (sp?) earth on them. I also used vet rx down their back. Not sure which worked but they are gone. I also cleaned out all bedding and put d. earth down in the barn.
