    If you have read the post I made in the topic Any one have this book? You will understand why I am publicly commending Mrs. Hoeggar from Hoeggar Suppy.

    I followed the dosing instructions given for the acidified copper sulphate that I purchased from the goat store and well, I truly think that the doseage was just too much for a mini goat. I contacted Hoeggars with this, not blaming them, just to let them know what happened with my girls and Mrs Hoeggar called me back, very compassionate and very understanding, I reassured her that I was not placing blame whatsoever, it was my oversight with the fact that most goat doseages are based on the large breeds, this lady has a heart of gold and though it wasn't their fault that Tilly died, she offered to compensate me with a bag of the Golden Blend goat minerals, so that I can try them and see if the deficiency in copper is corrected with them.

    Mrs. Hoeggar was so warm and friendly as well as sypathetic to the loss by my own hands, I feel better knowing that I am not the only one who has ever made a choice that has cost a life. 75 years of the Hoeggars being in the goat business as well as being a very close God loving family has really enriched my appreciation for Mrs. Hoeggar.

    That is so nice. :hug: Is she going to put in a correct dosage for minis in her future editions?

    She did tell me that she would have a change made. I just felt it neccessary that since I had a problem it may help others avoid it.

    Thank you for letting us know about the outcome with Hoeggar's. When I have called asking questions, they have always been more then helpful.
