This is off the Fias site:

Give Orally - Administer straight (no need to mix with any other liquids) into the mouth using a syringe (remove the needle). Do not just add it to the kid's water because you will not know if he receives the correct dose. Do not add it to his milk because the milk effects the potency of the drug.
# Five day treatment- you must treat the full five days.
* Day one: 1 ml per 5 pounds- given orally.
* Days 2-5: 1 ml per 10 pounds- given orally
* Coccidia prevention treatment:
o Treat kids at three and six weeks of age.
o Try to make sure that the kids don't poop, pee or walk in their food and water (virtually impossible).
* Notes:
o Albon is a broad spectrum antibacterial. It is also used to treat shipping fever, bacterial pneumonia, footrot & diphtheria.
o This works the best for us in the treatment and prevention of Coccidiosis.
o 5 packets soluble powder (107 gm) are equivalent to one gallon of Concentrated Drinking Water 12.5% solution

We have dosages up on goatkeeping 101 of dairygoatinfo.com Please make sure you know your mg/kg of the sulfa before you dose.

In areas where cocci problems are real, some places dosages would not touch cocci for prevention even. Make sure dosages come from folks using them and fecaling to know they work. Vicki
