    I got this off of www.goatworld.com

    Red Cell® is a palatable yucca-flavored Vitamin-Iron-Mineral feed supplement for horses formulated to provide supplemental vitamins and minerals that may be lacking or are in insufficient quantities in a horse's regular feed.

    GoatWorld note: The use of Red Cell® for goats is not listed on this product. It has been the experience of many goatkeepers (myself included), that Red Cell® is an ideal supplement for goats if used correctly - especially in cases of Anemia and Bottle Jaw. However, you should be aware that continued daily use of Red Cell® over a long period of time may result in other nutrition and health complications. Persons considering administering Red Cell® should first consult their veterinarian before dispensing. The current, most widely agreed upon dosage for Red Cell® for goats is 15 cc's administered orally, daily for one week.
