well that and since I work 10 hrs a day at a reg job getting a script from a vet is a pita. not like they will just give me one over the phone and drop it off. they don't wanna drop by when theyre in the area on a sat or sun..cuz they never are...and im not home on tues from noon to 4 when theyre here at the dairy 30 mi away...

logistically its a pita....idont know why the places that sell it just cant write a the script..i mean its a booster shot why do I even need one

Multi-Min is not a vaccine - it is not a booster shot. Selenium is considered "dangerous" at high levels, so therefore it cannot be sold without a prescription. No vet worth his salt, will give a prescription to someone they don't know. I get "over-the-phone" prescrips all the time, but I'm not opposed to paying a vet to visit my farm when I need one.
If your vet visits a dairy near you, won't he leave it with them? If your vet knows you & trusts you, he would leave it there for your convenience.

I've never used it so know nothing about it. Sure seems expensive for something normally supplied in high quality feed and mineral. Do you also need a prescription for Mu-Se and Bo-Se??

Must be totally related to the selenium content. Can't imagine that small amount of Se being toxic even when injected.

To the best of my knowledge, Multi-Min, BoSe & MuSe have always needed vet script. (BoSe & MuSe for at least 25 years).
TexasBred - many, many years ago, Cornell did some research on SE and tried to over-dose an animal with MuSe and was unable to accomplish that. But - according to USDA (? whoever makes our rules) SE is labeled toxic because it is in some areas of the US, but definitely not HERE.

It can be toxic to horses.
