I have a one year old Boer cross doe that i just picked up last week. Today I noticed that around both ears the hair is gone. Her eyelids are red. I gave her a copper bolus tonight because her coat is kind of rough. She has free choice minerals, hay, and mixed grain once a day. Not sure what her diet was at the last place. Any suggestions on what this could be? Her skin where the hair is missing is smooth, no scaly patches.

I would definitely try ivermectin. That takes care of a wide range of parasites and any worms she might have. I am not sure if a mineral deficiency would cause hair loss like that but I am sure it’s possible. Also, we have dusted with DE for parasites. When Purchased my last for the farm had a couple goats with bald spots on their side and they said it was mange. Maybe something like that?
