What mineral do you use?
Hi!!What mineral do you use?
I totally understand what you are feeling. I'm dealing with a similar problem with a doe I have, but with weight gain instead of a skin condition.Also I’ve ordered some zinpro 4 thinking that might benefit better than the human pills. But I’m frustrated I sometimes feel like intervening too much makes things worse
The wheat germ is very slowly helping my doe - along with LOTS of brushing. ALL my girls were dandruffy this year. I love the idea of doing the wheat germ oil WITH cod liver oil. I will definitely be doing that next time. It occurred to me that if humans get get vitamin D deficiency living up North (I'm in Maine), then goats can too. I might even try some sort of vitamin d treatment throughout the winter to see if that helps prevent this from happening again.Yeah, mine only like Sweetlix occasionally. I have a local co-op store mix that mine prefer.
How long have you been offering kelp?
I wonder if they would benefit from some flax seed. I hear that's great for skin.
@groovyoldlady had an unidentified skin issue clear up with wheat germ oil I believe. Maybe she could chime in on her experience.
Oh, and ditch the baking soda free choice. That's not recommended to be done anymore. 😉
