    Is this one of those tubes where there are notches that designate the weight and you turn the knob to the weight you want? If so, figure up how much your doe weighs, and turn the knob til it's over the weight you need. I give twice the amount to my goats. Don't worry if it's not exact. I've given a hefty dose of this stuff and my goats have been fine. Better a little more than underdosing.
