My buck has started the desperate scratching I have seen with mites. I treated him with Ivermectin pour-on right away, but couldn’t find any scabs. Today I noticed scabs on the tips of his ears. (Upon closer inspection, there is gunk inside his ears as well.)
I soaked the scabs with soapy warm water, and they came off. Underneath it bled, and he seemed to find it painful. I didn’t take the scabs off the other ear, just gently washed and dried them.
I then applied VetRx in the inside of his ears and Nustock on the scabby area.
My question is, should I take the scabs off the other ear, or wait a few days, so it doesn’t bleed?
Thanks
