Is this fish tail

My goats had bolus’ February 20th and they have free choice purina goat minerals w 2500 ppm copper. They are not on well water. Their coats are a little rough and I noticed today their tails are looking fishy. Should I give a bolus again?

I usually have to bolus about every 3 months too, so could be it’s just time 😊

@ThePhoebeFive do you have a good weight on him? Just to make sure you are giving him the full dose of copper when you bolus him.

Copper is 1gram/22lb , so he’d need more than 1 bolus. Do you dose him every 3 months?
Calcium in the well water can conflict with copper absorption.
