OK OK OK! I"M FREAKING OUT! My vet was out of town. He is supposed to call us tomorrow. We're getting her floated and having him check out this lice situation! I dusted ALL the horses! AND I'm giving her ivemectin! Plan on doing it every 10 days for 3 weeks.
But her is the day I shaved part of her hair (too dirty to finish, thankfully bc we haf another cold spell, so I didnt finish the shave). Only a few small patches of lost hair. I bathed her with insecticide when my clippers stopped going through, then put another pour on insecticide one. THEN the very next day we dusted her. Waiting ten days to do it again.
Then today (five days later), I started brushing her, and more clumps came out. I put down the brush, and just rubbed her, and it just fell out! There looks to be new hair growing, but it's just upset us so bad! She was doing so good! And now this! We put sunscreen on her after the picture....
The dust I used even has directions how how to use it on horses, cattle, swine, vegetable gardens, DOGS AND CATS! Could that have done this or was it just damage from the lice? She didnt start itching until a few weeks ago! Then I noticed the fur loss and started investigating a little closer.
