"Update: it’s been a couple of weeks since I have my three the proper dosage of copper and I am starting to see some positive results. My brown boy is actually going from beige to a darker brown and his skin has improved tremendously. It was…"

"If he had the clumpy stool prior to giving the copper, that could have been caused by worms, and copper oxide kills worms, so the copper could have caused his stools to go back to normal. I've read at least 15 studies where they used copper…"

"Update: Stools back to normal today. I checked throughout the day and he seems to be back to berries. I gave him probiotics after seeing the clumped stool. I wouldn’t think the copper would cause as I discovered it prior to giving…"
