Comparing two highly similar genomes

Dear all,

I have two highly similar mammalian genomes at the chromosome level, one is a wild species and another is a domestic species. For finding the species-specific sequence (unconserved sequence), I aligned together using the "nucmer" (from MUMmer4), but it sounds that this tool is not suitable for this comparison; because when I manually checked the part of genome sequence in wild species without any counterpart sequence within domestic species using blast, this tool can find a sequence with high identity in the domestic species, unlike the "nucmer" tool. Could you please let me know any appropriate tool for comparing these two highly similar genomes?
