Please ask your vet. Also note- Collies can have a problem absorbing zinc wich is an important skin mineral. A zinc sulfate deficiency can look exactly like mange, but you won't be able to find any mange mites under the microscope. Supplementing your collie's diet with zinc sulfate vitamins will give you a positive response in 10 days if it is actually a zinc problem. I have a white collie that requires zinc and night time excersise so the sun doesn't burn his face. I buy his zinc sulfate (for people) from the pharmacy $6 for 200 pills and one pill a day- it is cheap to manage. cheap
