    Can someone tell me the proper dosage--cc's per lbs--for using this as cocci treatment for kids-22 too 50 pounds? Thanks--also, do you just squirt it in their mouth, or dilute it w something? :shrug:

    Dosage for 40% Di-Methox:

    1 cc per 10 pounds the first day, then 1/2 cc per 10 pounds days 2-5. You just squirt it in the side of their mouth. It is BITTER and nasty and they will not like it at all :grit: Be sure to give a squirt of probiotic paste also afterwards. This is the dosage for Treatment if they have cocci. The preventative dosage is listed below in the next post. :)



    Treatment Dosage for 12.5% Di-Methox:

    1cc per 5 pounds the first day, then 1 cc per 10 pounds days 2-5.

    the dosage on hoeggers is wrong.
    correct dosage as posted from milking mom is correct.
    this is dosage for cocci prevention, cocci treatment would be full dosage five days straight. means 1cc per ten poun for five days.

    THe 1 cc per 10 lbs is for the Di-Meth 40%??

    I have been given this as the dosage for the Di-meth 12.5% as well. Is the dosage the same for both ??

    Thanks,

    Lynn

    Since the percentage for the active med is less the dosage is more.. See edited post above.
