"Yes exactly - She developed large bald patches (across ~30% of her body) in about a day, with no skin damage to suggest it had been pulled out or rubbed off. Elsewhere the hair has gotten very thin, but not bare. On a positive note what's left…"

"Since there is another similar thread, I just thought I should clarify ... When I read that she was losing hair in large clumps, I assumed that meant there were large patches of bare skin. Is that the case?"

Hair Loss

Posting for a friend. Her goat is losing her hair in huge clumps. She is eating, happy goat but has lost about 30% of her coat. They called a vet and they have wormed her and are using an anti fungal on her skin does anyone have any idea what it could be or treatments? I was wondering if it could be mineral or cooper issue? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
