Hi Everyone! I have a kid that is about 3 weeks old. I have noticed that she scratches behind/under her ear and shakes her head. I did some inspecting this morning and felt some tiny bumps under her left ear and two under her right. Other than that, she's healthy and happy. Runs around like crazy and eats really well. I am bottle feeding her and I've had her since she was a day old. I keep her inside as I do not have any other goats at the moment (my grandmother asked me to raise her). Any input or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Give her a good look over for lice. They are tiny little grey bugs..some have reddish heads. Scratching often leads me to find them pestering my goats. For the scabs..use a heavy oil like olive oil and a drop of tea tree essential oil ..rub the area well with this 3-4 times a day OR you can pick up VetRx and use that..
