We have done pretty much everything we can. Skin biopsies, skin punches, hair follicles have been sent in to Michigan State. Everything has come back normal, even the allergy testing. It really does seem painful, but she doesn't scratch at it. It's basically like the skin is dead and just falls off in clumps, but the skin underneath is the same, just scaly and dry, but like I said she doesn't have it on the white parts of her. This is the first time in our 12 years of breeding this has happened. I also own her father and he doesn't have the skin problem. The mother of Kahlua doesn't have any problems either, but has been spayed to prevent this from occurring again, same with Kahlua. She has been on zinc for two months now and the vet said that we should start seeing results in the first month but nothing has happened yet, so we will keep trying and trying until we figure out what this is, because if it does have anything to do with the blue gene, we can look out for it in the future.
