BO-SE (selenium & vitamin E) Shot For Goats

Selenium, vitamin E and Omega 3 fatty acids are essential for the health and performance of your livestock. However, if your animals are not getting enough of these nutrients, they are at risk of developing white muscle disease. This condition can lead to serious health problems, as well as reduced growth rates and fertility.

BO-SE is an emulsion of selenium and vitamin E that has been shown to prevent the development of this condition in calves. It also works as a treatment for existing cases of white muscle disease. This syndrome is caused by a deficiency of selenium and vitamin E in diets containing insufficient protein. It usually affects young animals that are being fed high levels of concentrates with low levels of roughage and as they get older they get more susceptible to this disease.

Selenium-Tocopherol Deficiency is a disease that affects ruminants, including goats. It’s caused by a lack of selenium and/or vitamin E in the diet. This disease can be fatal for young animals, causing white muscle disease, sudden death, and other secondary infections. The Bo-Se Shot is an emulsion of selenium in tocopheryl acetate, which is administered via intramuscular injection to help prevent or treat the condition.

What is a BoSe shot for goats?

BoSe is a vaccination aimed at maintaining the vitamin E/selenium balance in your goat’s system. It should be given to your goats each year as part of their annual health checkup. This shot will help prevent selenium deficiency in goats, and it can also be used as an emergency treatment if your goat develops symptoms of selenium deficiency (such as hair loss).

BO-SE Shots

BO-SE shots are a combination of two vitamins: vitamin E and selenium. These vitamins help to maintain healthy immune systems in goats. The BO-SE shot can be used as an aid in preventing diseases and improving the health of your goats, but it should never be used as a treatment for an existing condition or illness.

The best time to give a BO-SE shot is between April and October of each year when there is daylight longer than 12 hours per day (this allows the maximum amount of time for photosynthesis). For best results, give your goats one BO-SE shot every 10 days during this time frame.

The BO-SE Shot is a once-a-year injection that helps maintain the right balance of vitamin E and selenium in goats. This prevents the accumulation of toxins and increases their resistance to disease. Selenium deficiency is most common in areas with sandy soils, but it can also occur when goats are kept on high plains or mountains, as well as during periods of drought when forage becomes sparse.

When given early enough, this shot can prevent serious problems from developing later on; however, selenium deficiency symptoms cannot be reversed once they have appeared. The symptoms include:

  • Anemia (weakness/pale mucous membranes)
  • Abnormal hoof growth (overgrown hooves)

Maintaining the Vitamin E/Selenium Balance

Selenium is an essential trace mineral that is necessary for the health of your goats. Selenium deficiency is common in goats and can cause reproductive problems such as infertility and stillbirths.

Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin that supports normal immune function and plays a role in reproduction in both male and female goats. Vitamin E deficiency is rare in goats but may occur when animals are fed diets deficient in selenium or other nutrients required to metabolize vitamin E.

The combination of selenium with vitamin E has been shown to provide greater benefits than alone when it comes to boosting immunity and helping prevent disease, especially respiratory problems like pneumonia or shipping fever (caused by bacterial infection).

What are the signs of selenium deficiency in goats?

  • Muscle tremors
  • Stiffness
  • Difficulty walking
  • Hair loss
  • Reproductive problems – infertility, fewer offspring, and/or offspring with birth defects.
  • Neurological problems – staggering, falling over (ataxia), head pressing, circling, and blindness.

How much BoSe do you give a goat?

You can give a goat up to 1 cc (or 0.1 ml) per 100 lbs. of body weight. It’s important to note that 1 cc is equal to 0.1 g and 0.1 g is equal to 1 mg when it comes to BoSe dosages for goats and other animals, so this means that you should administer about 1 mg of selenium per kilogram of your animal’s weight in order for it to be effective in improving your animal’s health.

When it comes to giving BO-SE shots to your goats, there are a couple of things you’ll need to keep in mind. These include:

The general rule of thumb is that no goat should be given more than three injections within any one-year period. This ensures that their immune system doesn’t become overburdened by too many foreign substances. A few years ago when I was still practicing veterinary medicine, I found myself having to advise some clients whose animals had received multiple oral doses in a short period of time—we were worried that this might cause problems for them down the road, so we advised them against continuing treatment with oral doses as well as BO-SE shots for the next six months or so until all traces of previous doses had been flushed from their systems (which took about two weeks).

You can start giving your goat its first dose around three months old if they have not yet been vaccinated against enterotoxemia and ergotism by its breeder (which many breeders do). It’s also important that if an animal has recently suffered an injury or illness where antibiotics were prescribed; wait at least 10 days before administering this shot again, the danger here is that medicated milk could accumulate in body tissues and compromise future health issues involving these areas; such as mastitis due to ruptured udders caused by too much medication circulating through one particular area after being absorbed into surrounding tissues during lactation periods due to recent antibiotic use.

How do you BoSe a goat?

To give BoSe to a goat, you’ll need a needle and syringe. The dosage depends on the size of your goat and its weight. For example, if you want to give your goat 5 mL of BoSe, multiply that amount by 17.5 and then divide by 0.75 (the average weight of a newborn kid).

To administer the shot:

  • Find the spot between two ribs where there’s no hair or fat; it should feel like there’s muscle underneath your thumb when you press down on it; this is where you will give the injection
  • Cleanse the area with an alcohol swab
  • Use an alcohol pad again before inserting a needle into the skin

When can I BoSe my pregnant goat?

It is recommended that you give BoSe to your goats through the last third of pregnancy. This time frame covers four to six weeks before kidding. After kidding, you can give the kids once or twice a year, then switch over to Vita-Bac (Vitamin B Complex) shots which can be given every four weeks as needed.

How often can I give BoSe to goats?

You can give BoSe shots to your goats once every six months or once a year. If you choose to use the latter method, it’s important to be consistent with how often you give them their shots. This will help ensure your goat receives the full benefit of the product and avoid any potential side effects.

Why the Vitamin E/Selenium Balance is Important

Selenium is an essential mineral for the immune system. It works in conjunction with vitamin E to help keep the immune system strong. Selenium is a trace mineral that’s naturally found in most foods, but it can also be added to your goat’s diet. The recommended amount of selenium for goats is 0.04 mg/kg bodyweight each day, or about 25 milligrams per 100 pounds (45 kilograms).

Vitamin E is another important factor in helping your goat fight infection and disease, and it also contributes to good health in general by helping regulate inflammation throughout their bodies. Vitamin E occurs naturally in many plants we eat every day like wheat germ oil or sunflower seeds, but if you want something more concentrated than those sources (which are still great), supplementing your goat’s diet with “natural” vitamin E can be helpful.

You can use a BO-SE shot to raise selenium levels in your goat.

BoSe is a supplement that you can use to raise selenium levels in your goat. Selenium is an essential mineral and it helps protect the thyroid gland from disease, so it’s important for the health of your goat. If you think your goat’s selenium levels need a boost, consider giving him or her a BO-SE shot.

A BO-SE shot is an injection that contains vitamin E and selenium. The injection works as follows:

  • You give the liquid solution by syringe into an area on the side of the neck called a large lymph node (also known as “the pit”).
  • You then massage this area for about 5 minutes with circular motions until all of the liquid has been absorbed into skin tissue beneath your fingers; do not press too hard or penetrate deeply (this will cause inflammation).
  • Finally, wash hands thoroughly before handling food products because some of these vitamins are toxic if ingested by humans.

Final words,

BO-SE shots are a great way to raise selenium levels in your goats. They’re easy to administer, and you can even give them yourself. If you’re worried about giving your goat too much selenium, we recommend consulting with a vet before administering the shot.
