    Hello,

    My boer does (had cocci at 2 weeks which we cured and is now gone) started loosing there hair right around the end of the treatment. I figured (as well as everyone else) that the hairloss was stress related. 5 weeks later, they are still lossing hair. The one doe has big patches missing on her back, face and kneck and is much worse than the other who only have one nickel sized (not prefectly round though!) spot on her back.

    Is there anything else I can to help this? Is it something different other than stress?

    THank You!

    What are you feeding for minerals? Do they have dry skin underneath or smooth skin underneath? Dry skin means zinc, and smooth skin means copper with hair loss.
