    Sandy is doing just fine. No signs of toxicity. I've given the All Guard 4 in 1 to five five other pregnant does now.

    I want to do a summary of common selenium supplement values, mostly for myself so I can feel confident this will provide enough to prevent selenium deficient newborns:

    All Guard 4 in 1 Ewe Bolus: 100mg/6 months suggested time = 16.7 mg per month

    Replamin Plus paste: 0.39 mg per 5mL dose, typical dosage weekly, 0.39x4 = 1.56 mg per month

    Selenium & Vitamin E gel: 2.0ppm per 4mL recommended monthly (need weight to calc)

    MultiMin90 injection: 5mg/mL at 1mL per 100lbs, 7.5mg of selenium for a 150 pound goat which is typically given either every 4 or 6 months. 1.25 - 1.875 mg per month.

    Bo-Se Injection: 1mg/mL, dosed at 2.5mL per 100lbs. 3.75mg per 150 lb goat typically given either every 4 or 6 months. 0.63 - 0.94 mg per month.

    Sooooo.... The All Guard value is pretty high eek but these are all different delivery methods and I didn't give extra Vitamin E so who knows!

    I would say to remember the different forms of selenium. To compare: Replamin gel is a weekly dose. Selenium e gel is a monthly dose. However, Replamin has A TON more selenium... so why would it be given weekly as opposed the gel monthly with lower selenium.... THE FORM!

    Replamin has sodium selenite. Selenium gel has selenium yeast.

    IMO sodium selenite is crap. I can pump loads of it in and I feel like it just gets peed out ... argh!!!!

    Now selenium yeast, that stuff is bioavailable! BIG difference even when given less frequently.

    Just something to note!!

    3 weeks have passed, no notable improvement in Sandy's pasterns or tail. I'll check back again in a few more weeks! IMG_20210122_152516411.jpg

    No! Your comment made sense but I could not find the ingredients for the All Guard.

    Interested in finding out if you've seen any changes in Sandy. I just received the 5-in-1 based on a recommendation from a friend but he didn't take before and after pictures.

    No notable improvement is apparent to me. Now granted Sandy is entering late pregnancy so ligaments are loosening and she is certainly my toughest case. I am giving each doe a few doses of selenium/E gel before their due dates to avoid deficient newborns just in case. IMG_20210227_220027503.jpg
