One of my bucks has had really flaky skin since he started to shed about 2 months ago. I've shaved him put pour on ivermectin, permition, baycox and wormed him. He has had 2 baths with dawn soap. He does look better but still flaky. So what is it so I can treat it? The other bucks have a shinny good looking coat.,

How about drenching with several cc Aloe Vera Gel for a week or two?
Do your boys get BOSS? Maybe he could use a little extra.

could be as stated..dry skin...I used Flax seed and wheat germ in a bit of coconut oil for two of my saanan who just looked scruffy with thin hair heavy flaky skin...seemed to help pretty fast..they ate it right off the spoon...but it could also be mites...pour ons do not work well for mites..ivomec sub Q 1 cc per 40# if the BOSS doesnt seem to help..

So Cathy, are you getting a bit of coconut oil on the spoon then adding the flax seed & wheat germ to it in one serving then?

Tiffofmo horse products work great on goats, I like to do a weak vinegar rinse.

I dont measure but I would guess its 1/8 cup flax and wheat together and 1/2 teaspoon oil or them to share comes out to be 2 teaspoons each..I didnt want to start them off with too much..but just that little bit seems to be helping a lot
