    Can anyone tell me what will happen, she got into
    the horses vitamin E and Selenium supplement.
    I'm not sure how much she actually ate, as it was
    all over the ground also....but I do know she ate some,
    and liked it !

    Only thing I know if a goat gets to much Selenium it will kill them. How I know this part is because I have read and are dealing with a little goat now that has to have Bo-SE and it has both in it. If a goat gets to much Selenium it will kill it because Selenium is very toxic and an overdose can kill animals quickly.

    Good Luck on your goat. Hope all goes well. :)

    Is she pregnant? If so, it might cause birth defects. I'd be inclined to call your vet - now.
