We have a couple heifers who look like they have ringworm around their eyes. Skin is very crusty/flakey and they have lost hair around their eyes.
How do I treat this? They have been handled and are fairly tame, but not tame enough to let me scrub around their eyes without moving. I don't want to get any nasty chemicals in their eyes. What can I do?
Haven't had this in calves but did in goats and it was mites. I treated with ivomec (gave injectable orally) and then dusted them with pyrethrin dust or seven dust or something of that nature. The goats eyes looked like they were going bald around them and were even a little puffy if I remember right. Not sure if that helps any!

Mine broke out with it last year and I ran to the vet.....
Who told me what Myersfarm just said. Give it time, let it run it's course. It sucked, my whole herd looked bad. It eventually went through them all and away. Hope it doesn't come back this year.
