    I believe that if you are seeing eggs, it is lice. Someone posted a great link today. If I can find it, I'll come back and post it here for you.

    Use seven dust or ivomec pour on to kill them. Retreat in 10 days. to remove the eggs you can use unrefined coconut oil just barely heated enough to liquidate. It will dissolve the egg casings.
