I don't know if we had true munge or not, but we put Neosporin (or similar antibiotic) on crunchy crud and it helps clear it up.

Light Livestock carries the "witch's brew" that works well on munge. Or you can make your own = I think the recipe is somewhere here on the Forum. Try searching for witch's brew.

HI mara
Thank you for that I will give it a try so do you inject them or just swab it on the scabby bits in the nose

Hi Judith
I have found the witches brew but I sent the lady a message about one of the ingredients I think it was DMSO one of those as I have no idea what it is and she has not gotten back to me I have tried several times.

DMSO is dimethyl sulfo something. It is a liquid. I've gotten it from Valley Vet, but our vet carries it also. The Witches Brew is supposedly good for mites too. BUT - Our vet gave us a warning not to use it on pregnant girls (I think because of the DMSO).

For the antibiotic smear it on the crud - just you would on a scrape on yourself.,
