Yep, that is what I was going to say. Do not panic if they are still there after that 4 weeks most people say. i have some that fall off in that time but most take longerliz said:I band my mini's and it can take up to 6 weeks for them to drop off. The one thing to watch for is infection around the band. Redness and oozing as well as a smell are sure indications. Keep them clean and apply a gentled iodine if you see any signs. Usually my babies drop theirs in 4 weeks but some have gone to 6.

Just a note, do not use Mu-Se on goats, regardless of what your vet says. Mu-Se is a more concentrated shot of selenium and you can easily overdose a goat and kill it from selenium poisoning. Bo-Se is much safer, especially for nigerians.
........ I can tell you that from reading some debates that were going on Yahoo lists about the subject of Bo-Se vs. Mu-Se, there have been more cases of toxicity with Mu-Se than there have been with Bo-Se.
Just wanted to pass that along :wink:
alyssa_romine said:the only thing i give my bucklings before banding is CD-T. They all have done perfectly fine on this. So I am sure what you are doing is fine.....I dont know anything about Mu-Se so I cant help you out on that one. I would go with what your vet says if you really trust him.
