    Also in the paper above about laryngeal neuropathy, a therapeutic injection of three copper types:


    After the initial visit, goats in the herd were subcutaneously injected with a commercially available copper solution (5.5 mg copper lactobionate + 3.1 mg copper gluconate + 980 mg copper octadecanoate) at a dose of 0.1 ml/kg of body weight. This treatment was repeated after 30, 60, 90, and 120 days.”

    This treatment resolved copper deficiency in most goats but the worst affected did not recover and “died between 6 and 8 months after the onset of clinical signs.”
