    Does anyone know the dosage for Selenium when treating wry neck? I am treating my 13 day old duckling with polyvisol without iron, 3 drops twice a day.

    Most selenium that I have seen online is in micrograms or mcg.

    I haven't bought any yet. The bottles that I was reading at cvs didn't have mcg, but I do see online they're labeled as mcg. I will have to go back to whole foods and pick some up. I'm also going to have to get a scale, my duckling is no where near 2 pounds.
    Thanks for your help.

    There are other vitamins like Poultry Cell and Nutridrench for Poultry that contain selenium along with vitamins.

    I have to go to the feed store tomorrow, I will look for that. Maybe it'll have everything she needs in one treatment. Thank you for the advice. Have you treated wry neck before? This is a first for me.
