I am getting ready to put my buck in with my two does. They have all been copper bolused about a month ago. Is it ok to deworm orally with Ivomec plus and give them selenium e gel on the same day or do I need to spread the doses out? If I need to wait in between which should I do first?

It's fine to do both at once. I don't give my bucks selenium that close to breeding though. It can cause mobility issues in the sperm. Would be best to give his after breeding.

Hmm I had been told to do the selenium gel before breeding. If I'm waiting 10-14 days before breeding do you think it would be helpful or harmful to the buck?

I was told to wait at least 28 days after giving selenium to the buck. It won't make him sterile or anything. You just may end up with more bucklings because of the effect.

Thanks for all of the info! Dewormed and dosed does but just dewormed the buck. He will get his selenium after we breed. Now I know to get all of this done sooner next year!
