    Hi. I noticed my q month goat was scratching her ears a lot. On further inspection I found a lot of flakes and crusty bumps. They are around her ear and inside as well. Any suggestions and how to treat it? She's being bottle fed on whole milk and is currently in the house till the weather breaks in my area. 20210221_121430.jpg 20210221_121404.jpg 20210221_121343.jpg 20210221_121329.jpg 20210221_121317.jpg

    Sounds like ear mites.

    I’d give Ivomec injectable 1cc per 40lbs and VetRX in and around the ears.

    Is Ivomec ok to give a 1 month old goat? I read somewhere that they shouldn't receive it till after they are 6 months old?

    I always start Ivomec at 1 month old, no issues.
