I rescued this little man yesterday, and today noticed the lice on him, so silly question, but can humans contract the lice too? Im not sure if im just itchy because i seen them or if he has contaminated me too.

     Of all the parasites of animals lice are the easiest to eliminate, and they pose no threat to you or your children. Treatment is relatively simple. The goat may be bathed with a pyrethrin shampoo, and after the goat is thoroughly dry, a pyrethrin spray or powder can be applied. This treatment will need to be repeated in 10-14 days since all of the nits will not be killed. Alternatively, permethrins are also effective against lice. Do NOT use permethrins on cats. Another option is fipronil (Frontline), which has been approved for the treatment and control of lice in goats. It usually is not necessary to treat the environment, but flea and tick foggers may help, especially in severe cases.
