Last fall my deer herd started having problems with losing their hair. I thought it was parasites and treated them with Ivomec. That is what the vet told me to try. As they started to get their summer coats they looked good but after about two weeks they started to lose patches of hair from the shoulders back. I have another pen of deer that do not have this problem.



Does anyone have an idea of what it could be and how to treat it?

Hi Larry, It sounds like your deer might have mange a mite that they can get from birth, it gets under the folicle of the hair. They lose hair and eventually get sores that they can die from. The vet needs to take a scraping of the area and see if he has mites and then a shot can be administered by the vet. Other deer can catch this from the sick one so keep them apart if you can. This happens if the fawn is born with a poor immuine system.

Let me know how things turn out.

Hi. Thanks for such recommendations. But I still have some problem of my hair. I'm an actress and I have to change often my character's looks, it means I need to wear a wig and my true hair are very damaged. Will you give my advice how to repair and make it smooth?

Oh, Andrew, I do understand you because I have such fine and damaged hair all of my own life. I couldnít ever comprehend what is the most convenient treatment for my hairstyle due to incompatibility all of them to my head. Nevertheless, I continued to looking for the treatment and one day I have found that hair mask. It helped me to gain nourishment and soothing of my hair and I canít refuse this product now. Probably, it will help you too to resolve this problem, just read more and make a decision.
