    I only use the gel for babies and I use the Bo-se shots that you can get from the vet. I get a bottle from them as I have alot of goats like Kate (helmstead) ...the gel just dont have enough in it, except for maybe babies. Call your vet and get the shots. It lasts longer and works better...the gel only lasts maybe a few days to a few weeks. Also check your loose minerals and I have found that the purina Fescue type has more selenium in it than any other I have found and copper too.
