I have piglets that are 9 days old 4 of them started losing their hair at the base of their ears and down their back, this kind of looks like mange on a dog, they may also have a loose stool. I have lost these 4 , the other 8 look healthy but I' m afraid something is going on and I will loose the others the mother seems to be healthy. Any idea what's going on. I don' t want to loose the rest of them!

Parasite Resistance to Anthelmintics

I have heard that parasites can develop resistance to certain chemicals just like bacteria can. Is this the reason why dewormers are rotated? In addition, how do parasites develop resistance so easily? Is it because they produce quickly and on a large scale? In addition, do they have properties similar to bacteria such as conjugation and other means? Thank you
