Re: [RC] [Guest] Vitamin E/Selenium Supplements - Susan Garlinghouse, DVM

Biltmore, so that may be the acid test.  In any event, is .5 mg even worth
feeding?  Should I feed it twice a day instead?  Thanks.

Since she has a history of muscle problems, I probably would, but how much
Se she's getting in her total ration depends on where your hay is coming
from---Se content in the SE can range from nonexistent to adequate.  So in
your case, I probably would advise getting her serum Se checked.  You might
also want to review your electrolyting protocol with some of the SE vets and
experienced riders.  That can be a big factor in tying up as well---in the
SE, probably more so than just selenium alone.
