Forage analysis question

Asked December 3, 2016, 11:06 AM EST

Hello. I am an equine veterinarian based out of Murrysville, PA. Can you recommend a lab or avenue for testing hay- selenium, Vitamin E are primary interest. I have a few farms where horses have very low Vitamin E levels and a more recent case of selenium deficiency as well. My clients would like to have their hay analyzed. Any recommendations for testing facilities would be appreciated. Thank you, Alexis Baney, DVM
