Selenium as micronutrient
Selenium as Micronutrient
Selenium has only a narrow therapeutic margin in horses. This means that the daily dose must be sufficient but not so high as to lead to overdose. As organic selenium compounds have been shown to be much better tolerated than inorganic ones, supplementation with organic selenium at moderate dosages which are nevertheless sufficient to cover the animal’s requirements makes sense.
orthosal® KOMBI contains only organically bound trace elements – including selenium – in appropriate dosages. If feeds containing very high concentrations of inorganic selenium are used the daily selenium uptake from the total ration should be checked. In selenium poor regions additional supplementation with selenium is advisable – at least for a limited period (see selenium supplementation, orthosal® Selen).
