I have a goat that is showing symptoms of polio (or one of the other things that show similar symptoms, but since it's late and very cold, I can't do much for him tonight except the b1). I have a b complex handy but I am still uncertain about how much, (except alot) and if I can give it to him orally. Last time I gave him a b1 shot it was awful and most of it came back out of the injection site. He was skin and bones then, though. (literally) Not to mention the fact that I only have a 29 gauge needle on a 1/2 cc syringe! I have bigger syringes, but can't transfer the needle. Maybe I am brain dead tonight but Vicki's dosage in a previous post was greek to me. "The textbook dose of thiamine for polio is 10 mg/kg (100 lbs is about 44.5 kg, so 445 mg thiamine at 100 mg/ml is about 4.5 cc of straight thiamine per 100 lbs of animal) IV to start, then repeat every 6 hours (subsequent shots can be IM or SQ) for a day or so." He's about 40 pounds/17-18 kg, my guess, and I want to give him something tonight. My B complex shows 12.5 mg/ml. Would that be about 13ml/cc for him? That seems like alot of fluid to inject, unless of course I can try orally right now. Thanks for the help in advance!
