Lice!

That time of year everyone, lice.

Lice can be present in cold weather but are not as active as when it begins to warm.

Prime lice target areas are the mane and tailhead.  Look at the base of the hairshaft for nits.  Sucking lice will be attached to the skin.  Chewing or biting lice will be frolicing about.

Treatment is to use one of the ivermectin product for the biting lice.  Crawling lice require a powered product or a spray on product.
