It could be mites or lice. At this point what are all her symptoms?
She sure is scratching and rubbing a lot. She started chewing at the hair near her hoof if that is anything. I don’t know if it her scratching is normal, though. Then there is her famacha score which is low. Besides this, she seems fine. She moves around normal and is a pig when it is feeding time. Just to add, she doesn’t suckle the bottle like my other ones do. The other ones will down one it 8 seconds while it will take her close to a minute or two, no idea if that is important either.It could be mites or lice. At this point what are all her symptoms?
What is Eprinex? How do you use it?Well if it is mites or lice a little bit of eprinex will take care of that.
If you don't have any someone might have a better suggestion since it has gotten quite expensive. For lice, but not mites you can use a permethrin pour on like Gordon's. I use it every month my vet told me to put it in a dish soap bottle and you go from the top of the head to the tail and back on an adult and one way only on a kid. When I'm treating mites with eprinex I usually get a little 3 cc syringe and put it in the areas it needs to be where I'm seeing signs of itching or the back of the legs, the udder Arch area if a lady has it etc. My bed is also giving me I think it was called startup in the past it's another cattlemen but I'm only ever used it when she premixed it and he had to be careful on weight.What is Eprinex? How do you use it?
So if I can’t get Eprinex, what do you recommend for mites if Permethrin doesn’t treat them?It does sound like mites.
Ok, so should I do both the zinc and something for the mites. Also, do you think I should jump right into a chemical treatment or try more natural first? Is there anyway to confirm that they have mites or lice? Would any of this be bad to do while she is on worm medication? Also, should I be giving probiotics while she is on worm medication? Thanks!seems like it could me mites, although i had a litter of triplets one year who had just terrible dandruff, yet they weren't anemic. A bath with medicated shampoo and a zinc pill for humans cut into 1/3 fixed them up.
I've never dealt with an anemic baby this young before, so i may be wrong, but keep giving red cell 1-2 times a week, since she does still have some color and isn't completely white. She needs to gain a bit of color.
for the skin and coat supplement, i really just recommend about 1/3 zinc pill for her. If it doesn't improve after about a month give a little more. Its cheaper and easier
Awesome! How often should I do this and should this be the only thing I do? Where can I get sulfur shampoo, and is there a certain one I'm looking for? I also have diatomaceous earth garden grade if that can be used for anything. Also are do you think continuing with the red cell is a good idea? If so, how long and what dosages for her at 11 pounds?A vet can do a skin scraping. I'd be very careful with zinc since she is so young. I'd try natural first. If you could keep her inside while she dries from a bath, a bath with a sulfur shampoo would be good.
Today, I got tea tree medicated shampoo for them and I’m going to give all of them a bath. I also got python dust. Can I use this and how?You would use something like Sevin Dust but unfortunately you really need to totally clean out the sleeping area.
Oh so should I put it on them?Python dust you would use on the ground. Clean the area thoroughly, put the python dust down, then put shavings and straw on top.
