    Hi there;

    I was going to give my goats the vaccinations this morning but I have a question.
    On the CD/T it says give 2 ml, on the vit. B it says 5 ml per 100 lbs., on the eppy (just in case) it says 1cc per 100 lbs.
    Now my syringe says cc on it but not ML!
    HELP! Do I need to get something different??
    Is there some kind of trick to this? I don't want to screw it up!

    Thanks.

    Lori

    They are the same . I just finished a year course as a medical assistant and that was one of the first things we learned. Math class.ewwwww
    cc's stands for cubic centimeters.
    ml's stands for milliliters
    One cc = one ml They are equivalent.
    One teaspoon = 5 cc = 5 ml
    One Tablespoon (Tbl) = 15 cc = 15 ml
    One Tablespoon = 3 teaspoons
    One ounce = 30 cc = 30 ml = 2 Tablespoons = 6 teaspoons
    8 ounces (The common size for a formula bottle) = 240 cc = 240 ml

    You are very welcome. I love goats and can't wait to get a couple. I had one that died last year. I am still sad and miss her, I called her my better than most dogs pet. Don't get me wrong I love dogs too, but this big lovable goat was so sweet.
