    Help! Goat lover from the far north haha

    I need copper bolus and no one up here seems to carry it! And I’ll have to sell my oldest son to be able to afford shipping from the US!

    anyone know a hidden website I’m missing?!

    Contact a livestock Vet and see if they can help you out? They have way better connections .

    Why do you need copper bolus?

    I showed a pic to everyone on here and they said I was copper deficient (also reading my holistic goat health book, she is showing signs of copper and selenium and maybe zinc deficiency)

    Backwoodgoats out of Alberta has most of the supplies.
    This should be the link to their catalog.

    You can also get cow sized ones and split them if you cannot find goat-specific.

    I haven’t yet. I sent pictures to my goat mentor and she said she didn’t look too bad and also I just purchased this goat 2 months ago and she is on new minerals from what she was (which wasn’t goat minerals) and that she thinks I should wait for my minerals to accumulate before I give a bolus. She was just worried I could give her toxicity if I give now. So I’ve waited.
