Sore ears
« on: May 15, 2010, 11:58:00 am »
My 2 sows have got what seems like eczema on their ears - the scabs sometimes crack and bleed a bit - any ideas?

Could it be caused by mites those nasty black things that seem to like ears particularly.  Try a good dollop of something like germolene or savlon for starters.

It could also be SUNBURN!

If they have been out in the sun, use fator 50 or aunburn relief cream to help it settle down
