As the organic form, Selenomethionine is actively taken up from the intestine and used by the horse during protein synthesis. Inorganic selenium, sodium selenate, is not actively taken up in the intestine and needs to be converted by micro-organisms in the caecum and small intestine to an organic form before it can be absorbed. The majority of inorganic selenium is excreted in the faeces and urine with as little as 40% of sodium selenate being taken up by the horse.
