We have a Lamancha doe who has been bred for the first time and is due mid April. Since summer, her coat condition has been awful...splotchy texture, dull, once black sections faded to grey. White sections of her coat had round, thin patches, almost like ringworm appearance, but the vet said it was not ringworm. Her winter coat is dull with a wooly undercoat. We have had the vet examine her on many occasions. He just keeps telling us to continue to offer free choice mineral. We asked if we should treat for copper deficiency, and he insisted we should not. We asked about selenium deficiency. He did not think that was the problem. They do not have parasites. He did test for those. However we live in Ohio which we've been told is copper and selenium deficient. Although we like our vet, I'm really worried as the doe is pregnant, and she does not appear to be getting better, only worse. Our older doe oes not have a great coat, and Ive noticed hat our youngest doe who is almost a year, is starting to look a little rough too. I've read so many articles and have seen symptoms like I'm describing in Copper, selenium, and zinc, deficiencies. I'm feeling desperate and questioning the vet's advice. Should I continue to trust my vet's judgment or should I go on my own and treat for copper deficiency and insist on a script for Bo-Se?
