"I was really able to see what you're talking about in the photos, but your description sounds like copper deficiency. You didn't say how much you gave him in September, but it's not unusual to dose it every 3-4 months. If that's…"

"Same thing happened to my daughter's wether last winter. Poor guy went through some really cold days with near-naked legs and nose. We had purchased some hay that unfortunately had a higher legume content than ideal, so I thought once we could…"

Wether losing hair on legs and belly.

Hi. I have a Nigerian Dwarf wether who will be 1 year old in April, that is losing hair on his legs and belly. He also has some hair loss around his eyes. He has flakey dry skin all over his lower body. (Pictures attached) He only eats grass hay, and has access to free choice sweet licks minerals, baking soda, and selenium. He was given copper in mid September. The minerals seem to be disappearing quite quickly this last week. Not sure if that has anything to do with it or not. I read about the…See More

"There's nothing in particular about hair loss on top of the head. If she's losing it in other places also, i'd check her over for lice."

"I'm with Julianne. I'd think she's rubbing her head against something or someone."

"Could she be rubbing her head against something to help her cope with the discomfort of being at the end of her pregnancy? "

Pregnant doe losing hair on the top of her head.

Hi. I'm not sure if it has anything to do with her being pregnant, or not, but, my doe who is 139 days pregnant, seems to be losing the hair on top of her head. As far as I can tell, (this is our first time!) she seems healthy in every way. The hair has been thinning the last week or so. We have 6 goats, and she is the only one that I am noticing that has the hair loss. She does seem to ram into one of the others quite frequently. But I wasn't sure if that would cause the hair loss. I tried to…See More

"I wouldn't use the Ultracruz because they make claims that are not backed up by any research. They say their boluses last for a year, which is totally bogus because it varies from one farm to another and even one goat to another. They also say…"

I am looking to get some copper oxide wire particles.  I found the brand "ultracruz" for $19.99 with free shipping on amazon.  At Jeffers, Caprice, and Valley Vet, it appears the brands are all "copasure".  If anyone has used the Ultracruz brands, can you tell me your thoughts?See More
