Does anyone know what these sores are from? They were pretty small but they grew and got infected.

That could be mites...could be Staph...but I think mites since there is a lot of hair loss there..ivomec injected 3 times one week apart usually takes care of it..I would clean the area with a 5o/50 vinegar/water...then iodine to help dry them up

Sure looks like mites. Don't rule out allergies though either. Has she had recent fever?

Don't think so. What should I use to treat the mites?

You can get it from Tractor Supply or any farm store. Or you can order it online from places like PBS Livestock or Jeffers or Hoeggers.
