Hi everyone, I treated my BO for scaly leg mite (ivermectin once applied to neck, amoxicillin 250 mg daily for twelve days, Vaseline daily on legs, a few warm foot baths) this is what her legs look like now. Continue treating? They are still puffier and redder than my other BO's legs. If continue, for how much longer? Thank you!

Can you get a picture of more of the leg? What I see looks healthy. I don't know what to say about the redness; maybe a hold over from the handling and treatment?

I am treating my flock with ivermectin. You need to apply it a second time 10-14 days after the initial dose to also kill the mites that were eggs from the mites that you killed the first time.
