Donkey Care

Insect Repellents

Every donkey is dusted with insecticidal powder every three weeks during winter months to prevent irritating lice. Donkeys grow thick coats and often become ideal hosts for parasitic equine lice. Insecticidal spray, cream or roll-on liquid protects donkeys against flies, bot flies, mosquitos, sandflies and ticks in summer. Donkeys irritated by flies and those with skin problems wear fly/protector veils.
