    I just purchased two nigerian dwarfs about 8 weeks old. I noticed some scabs on tips of ears and nose and my buck has a spot close to his eye that is also questionable. I have permethrin 10. I had used it on a different doe for mange a yr ago after everything else didn't work. And since I have the solution I would prefer to use it instead of buying something else. The problem is I have seem to lost the instructions. How do you figure out the solution mix? And what method do you prefer to use to apply it?

    I was reading about this on the internet and people who had scabies were mixing 1/2 and 1/2 with lotion in a zip lock bag and rubbing it on their skin for scabies. I guess you could do the same with goats and treat the dry skin as well? I am dealing with mites again this spring with my one goat. The ivermec does not work with him. I've tried the injection and the pour on. I find shaving and lathering him with nu-stock and dusting him with pyrethrin is the only thing that knocks them down.
    I should add that my goat is also a nigerian dwarf.
