My doe, Bella has some very dry and chapped teats. I've been putting Dr. Naylor udder balm on them every morning, but by the next day they are backed to being chapped. Should I apply the udder balm more than once a day or is there something else that I should be doing or doing differently?

I've always liked Bag Balm for very chapped teats. I usually only have to apply once/day, but if they get very chapped you can apply twice/day for a while. I haven't tried Dr. Naylor, but there are some brands of udder salve that seem to make chapping worse (or at least no better). For example, I threw out my tube of Corona Udder Butter. It was completely worthless. Once you get the dryness under control, I recommend a daily application of Fiebings Udder Balm. It's not nearly as messy as Bag Balm and it smells nice on your hands too. I find it works well on mildly dry udders and as dryness prevention.
