You're supposed to use 0.5 what per 100 pounds?

A kilogram is 1000 grams, about 2.2 pounds. So if you were supposed to give him 0.5 kilograms per 100 pounds of dog, you'd be feeding him over 1.1 pounds of medicine. That is probably not correct.

0.5 grams sounds more realistic, but better be sure, double check what the directions say.

i have gotten cocci guard 10X for my dogs.
i am trying to break it down so it will be easy for me with out metrics, kilos, or grams.
it says in one sentence 1 part med to 9 parts food.
in another sentence is says 0.5 mg/kg per 100 pounds
i dont know math other multiply, division, add, and subtract.
i have 5 dogs one weighs 65 lbs
two at 45 lbs
and one at 30 lbs
and another at 15 lbs
i am totally lost as how to do the recipe.
this is a dosage for one day and it is a dry mix.
what is the order of kilograms, milligrams, and grams?

any help would be appreciated

id like to see it broken down to teaspoons if possible

light and joy to all

hi! just logged in to this site so kinda new.
this topic got my attention and it's about the amount of teaspoon. is there a specific amount or definite weight if you said "a teaspoonful"?
just got curious... :D :)

The part that does not make sense is the "0.5 mg/kg per 100 pounds" statement. It would be either 0.5 mg/kg or 0.5 mg/100 pounds, but certainly should not put both in the same sentance.

Though the good part is the 1 part med per 9 parts food. If you correctly mix it in that ratio, then no matter how much or how little your dogs eat, they will have eaten the correct ratio.

But with the conflicting statements you may want to contact your vet or call the 1-800 number of the medicine company.

There is no set weight for a teaspoon of something, it depends on the density of the substance.

i just spoke to my vet this weekend, when he came to do a coggins on my horses, as we are getting ready to move 1500 miles north. he said he thought is would be about 1 tsp per hundred. he said that the three different measurements didnt make since to him, so he just chose the one for me to use. thanks guys for all your help:)
this rattled my brainnnnnn:eek:
