I have a husky who has been sick since he was 6 months old, my vet tested his zinc levels via blood test and the results came back on the low end. My vet is unsure what to do from here, he doesn’t know what the normal levels of zinc are for huskies. My dog seems to have most of the symptoms such as irritated gut which the vet originally said was IBD but we have been treating him for that since 7 months and he is now almost 2 years old, he has now once again quit eating all together. He has sores that will not heal on the side of his foot, he also has been shedding but not re-growing his undercoat, and he pants all the time anymore even in the cold outside. He also twitches his eye and lately his legs.  My vet has ran all the tests he knows of but, he admits he is not familiar with this zinc issue. Any help or advice would be appreciated. Thanks for your time
