Default How long until I see improvement with Copper deficiency?

We recently discovered that my does are copper deficit(fish tails, ghosting, wrong hoof growth, etc)

We dosed all 3 adult does(over 100lbs) with 4 g. Copper rod bolus capsules and babies will be getting 2g capsules soon(when I get the bolus gun)

How long should it be before we start seeing improvement and when will I know if I need to re dose them?

I gave my goats copper 2 months ago. The coats have color back now. If I can find the pictures I'll post the difference.
