I will ask Tim...do you want me to send you a bottle if I find it?
Once again....bo-se, copper, worms
it's all the same. Start with bo-se we know the dosage, when to give it and perhaps with a local mentor you may even find that our 1cc per 40 pounds isn't enough for your area. Then run a blood test, give the gel, make sure and use a syringe so you know exactly how much you gave her and the mg/kg of selenium that was in the gel, since I am sure there are several brands. Then run another blood test...did it rise the level?
I know for my herd 1cc per 40 pounds is minimal it raises the blood level but not for very long...but we also don't have true defficnecy here in healthy animals. So I give more than 1cc per 40 pounds of bo-se to sick goats, new goats and to kids at birth...but for everything else I give 1cc per 40 pounds.
So for your herd you will have to do the legwork to see if you can use the gel, otherwise your does will be defficient in selenium but also you are wasteing your money.
When on forums always ask when you hear information like this...do you fecal to know that wormer works? What worms are problems in your herd? Have you ran a test to see if Bo-se is needed? Has the selenium gel worked for you, how much did it rise the blood? Because you are going to quickly find that alot of folks simply parrot information they have heard, then you read it enough you think it's true.
I do not mean for one second, my way is the only right way....I just think when asking questions which concern your livestock and your pocketbook, ask the right questions. Because that is the one thing the internet can't do for you...get you into my barn, leaning on the milkstand, while you see my goats and talk goats. Because if you look out and see they look horrid, you wouldn't listen...right?
I am mostly saying this because the person I know on the internet who gives this gel information is new herself, doesn't test and is guessing. vicki
