They are the same thing. I treat with Ivermec pour on. I pour it down the top line like the directions say. If they have swollen legs or chewed on bloody body parts, I also give penicillin for five days. This works for me.
Same thing, as mentioned....mange is caused by the sarcoptic mite. The mite burrows under the skin causing intense itching, an allergic reaction, which then causes crusting. This crusting can then become infected, causing it to scab, ooze and weep. In untreated animals it causes extreme hairloss and loss of condition, can even cause death.
Ivermectin treats it in goats....but these mites are not necessarily species specific and therefore other furred animals (cats and dogs for example) can get them from your goats...mange mites are HIGHLY infectious. Ivormectin is not safe in some dog breeds though so check with a vet if you need to treat other animals.
Bedding and environment should be treated too....permethrin powder is good for this.
I am having a real problem with my goats. I have two black goats that have flaking skin really bad. One has a crusty, thick skinned udder. I took scrapings and hair to the vet, he couldn't find anything.GRRRRR
I bought some NuStock which has Sulfer in it. I'm going to put it on the two black goats and also inject them with some Ivomec tonight. Something is going on. My goats have minerals, copper bolus, BOSS and CALF Manna, good hay and plenty of Brouse and even some new wheat to eat. For sure, they are not malnourished.
Nustock is supposed to be great on mites too. I thought I had mites but it wasn't, but I put some nustock on it anyway and the skin was back to normal within a week. I put some on my mares summer itch belly that she always gets, and it cleared that up too!
