One of my does (Bawca - never kidded before) is due at any time now I would think. I know I was told I should get either BoSe or selenium gel but I can't seem to find anything locally. Would Selenium E intramuscular injectable be okay to get instead? It seems to be the only thing I can find.

That would probably be the same thing. If I remember right another person in Canada had said they couldn't get the Bo-Se in Canada but could get something else that was basically the same thing.

Thanks everyone! Ill make sure to check with our vet but does anyone have an idea as to what the dosage would be for injectable?

For BoSe, it is 1cc per 40 lbs.
Bo-Se- 1mg of selenium and 68 IU of vit. E per ml.
MuSe- 5 mg of selenium and 68 IU of vit. E per ml.

So your selenium is in between that. I would definitely talk to a vet or experience goat person before administering it. But it appears to basically be the same thing as our selenium injectible.
