Veterinary advice should be sought before applying any treatment or vaccine.
Chorioptic mange is caused by Chorioptes bovis and C. caprae mites. It is characterized by lesions, mild crusting and scaling of the pasterns, resulting from the mites feeding on the epidermal debris from the skin. The mite resides on the skin surface of goats and feeds on the epidermal debris.
Outbreaks occur most often during cold weather months.
