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.
