Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats

for people who love the littlest dairy goats

Hi, I recently had a 3 month old male kid diagnosed with Seborrhea, wet dandruff. He was treated and it's dried up now and he's doing well but still has these bald patches on his skin.  Anyone know will they heal, will the hair grow back?  We were hoping to sell him soon, but he doesn't look so good!  Thanks for the advice

Diseases of the Goat by Matthews says that although this can be treated with steroids, it tends to recur. When I searched online for this, I found info on dogs that said it could be caused by nutritional deficiencies. Do you have access to loose goat minerals over there? Skin and coat issues are often caused by zinc deficiency.
