Delousing goats

Delousing goats

The quart of Ultra Boss we bought to deal with our goats' lice comes with a measurer in the bottle. But the product is more geared toward cattle than goats, so I decided to use a syringe instead to ensure I dosed our doe and wether correctly. Aurora got 2 mL of insecticide dripped along her back while tiny Edgar got only 1 mL. Hopefully a repeat in two weeks will kill any lingering biters and will leave our herd once more in tip-top condition.
