Signs of Copper Deficiency in Horses

Updated January 5, 2024

In this Ask the Vet video, Dr. Gray and SmartPaker Dan talk about copper deficiency in horses and why copper matters in the diet. They discuss what happens to a horse’s hair coat when he is copper deficient and refer to the “canary in the coal mine” when it comes to feed that is low in copper.
