My vet suggested that since he's on a very high selenium mineral, we would have to take him off of it for 2-4weeks to get accurate blood results.
He was given a shot of selenium/E last time and has been fine until Monday so I guess we just assumed that solved it.
The first attack was under normal circumstances, he had been doing light jumping work and some flexions (I've only had him since October 07) we knew that the previous owner had not given anything other than a blue salt lick, so we assumed the heavy work load may have "used up" whatever little selenium he had.
The second attack seemed very strange since he was being worked very lightly in the past few weeks (exams coming up so ridden only twice per week: Monday and Thursday).
Are there any other precautions I can take?
